Downtown Brownsville

It is a dynamic period in Downtown Brownsville as we are at the cusp of an economic and cultural transformational shift. We’re experiencing dramatic changes throughout our downtown which was recently named a National Historic District by the National Park Service.

Brownsville’s Market Square Revitalization project, BCIC’s Façade Improvement Program, and local events such as the Market Square Lighting Ceremony have encouraged property and business owners to open new businesses to service the downtown area. Once again, downtown Brownsville is the hub and heart of our city.

Brownsville's plentiful historic fabric, particularly rich in our Historic Downtown District, is the foundation of our revitalization efforts.  Lauded as one of the most historic cities in Texas, Brownsville is unmatched as we continue to work on preservation-based economic development that preserves our historic structures and honors our colorful culture all while creating spaces where people want to be.

Our vision is not only to make Downtown Brownsville a destination, but also a premier experience. We are building a diverse community of entrepreneurs that is making it happen together, that shares successes, and creates unmatched experiences. Don’t just watch our story unfold. Jump right in and flourish with us.

If you're ready to be a part of the downtown community, we're here to help! Please contact Allan Garces, Downtown Manager, with any questions related to downtown development.
