3) The Docks: 1109 E. Freeway
The Docks was originally constructed as cotton warehouses in the early 20s. Built by thee Southern Pacific Railroad Company, they used bridge trusses in the construction thereby allowing for the unusually wide expanse of unobstructed floor space. During the last 20 years it has become one of Houston’s premier art venues, housing an antiquities dealer and art conservator, a multitude of artists, a photographer, and a contemporary arts and performance space.

The Houston Foundry is one of the few remaining original warehouses that constitute the Houston Warehouse District. The 1930’s building sits at the edge of Northside Village, a historical but rapidly changing neighborhood between the 1st and 5th Wards. The Foundry is in a walking distance of the newly extended Light Rail line on North Main on one side, and the St. Arnold’s Brewery on the other. It’s a stone-throw from Downtown Houston and the University of Houston Downtown Campus. The Foundry is a “home” to a number of Houston area artists who appreciate its no-frills industrial environment..

11) Fifth Ward Hotel: 1206 Nance
The former Fifth Ward Hotel building at 1206 Nance Street is a near-miraculous survivor of Victorian commercial architecture in Houston. Built in 1883 as a hotel, it was three stories tall with load bearing masonry walls of locally produced brick and cast iron columns supporting timber framed floors. By 1915 the hotel had closed and the building saw a succession uses. During the 1950s the two upper floors were removed because the masonry walls were near the point of collapse and the remainder of the historic building was concealed behind sheet metal siding. After a disastrous electrical fire in 1993 the last owner abandoned it. The structure was sensitively rehabilitated in 2002 by Rice Construction Company in consultation with historic preservationist Anna Mod.
In 2003 Michael Morton, AIA of m ARCHITECTS reconfigured the interior for use as an architecture studio and art gallery.

The Elder Street Artist Lofts are located at the historic Jefferson Davis Hospital. Renovation on the building was completed in 2005 and is currently home and studio to many of Houston’s fine artists, musicians, and performers.

Completed in 1924, the Jefferson Davis Hospital is a handsome red brick structure in the Classical Revival style. Houston's rapid growth soon rendered it inadequate, however, and in 1938 a new hospital replaced it. Over the years, the building housed a variety of tenants, but it had stood vacant for 20 years before Artspace and Avenue CDC provided services leading to the Elder Street Artist Lofts.

17) Discovery Green: 1500 McKinney
Discovery Green was envisioned by several committed Houston philanthropists, who saw the space as a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an urban park in the heart of downtown. In less than four years, the site that became Discovery Green was transformed from an undeveloped, concrete eyesore into a beautiful and vibrant destination adjacent to the George R. Brown Convention Center. Discovery Green exemplifies a successful public-private partnership between the City of Houston and Discovery Green Conservancy, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, which operates the park and produces hundreds of free events each year.
