The District is actively supporting economic development activities within its boundaries. Retail is a primary driver for the area and it brings revenue in from throughout the region, including the nearby Woodlands. Still, other businesses complement Retail, and give people reasons to be in the District more often than just for shopping. The goal is for the District to be a destination that people want and need to spend time in. That way, everybody wins.
