Zhongyuan is the second most populous district in Zhengzhou with a population of over 900,000.[when?] It is the city's industrial center especially in textiles, though many factories are closing and moving into more remote areas due to pollution. Zhengzhou University is located in the district as well as many of Henan's best middle schools.[citation needed] Zhongyuan is undergoing a construction boom though not as intense as the eastern area of the city.
