Downtown - Elliot Park
It’s hard to imagine today, but there was a time when the Elliot Park neighborhood, which shares a border with both the Downtown East and West neighborhoods and is north of Interstate 94, was considered to be out in the sticks. Elliot Park lays claim to being one of the city oldest parks (it dates back to the 1880s), and yet today the neighborhood is a decidedly mixed-use urban area that offers a broad array of lofts and condos, from high-rises to ultra-luxurious versions aimed at those with the
The Downtown neighborhood constitutes Minneapolis’ commercial center and is home to some of the state’s most noteworthy businesses and well-known skyscrapers, including the Foshay Tower. Indeed, when people think of Minneapolis, their mind’s eye likely is showing them the Downtown neighborhood.This part of downtown has undergone several major transformations in the past century or more, and in recent times residential lofts and condos have taken the place of commercial spaces.
The Loring Park neighborhood, which includes a large park and pond by the same name, is one of Minneapolis’ arts and cultural hubs, playing host a variety of celebrations and festivals throughout the year. The park itself has existed since the late 1800s, and in more recent years apartment, loft and condo buildings have sprung up around the park and in other parts of the larger neighborhood, which includes such landmarks as the Basilica of Saint Mary and the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The Downtown East neighborhood is in the center of Minneapolis and includes the historically important Mill District, which at one time was known as the world’s flour capitol due to its numerous, thriving flour mills. While it’s no longer the flour Mecca it was, the Mill District today is one of the state’s hottest markets for lofts and condos. In fact, many of the former flourmills and factories have been converted to lofts and condos that have revitalized the area and led to a population boom.
As its name implies, Nicollet Island – which is just to the north of Saint Anthony Falls – is surrounded by the water of the Mississippi River and accessed by the Hennepin Avenue Bridge that connects Downtown and Northeast Minneapolis. While the island is historically important in Native American culture, the late 1840s marked the first time development occurred there. Nicollet Island Park, which features the popular Nicollet Island Pavilion, is among the island’s most prominent features.
Located northwest of downtown Minneapolis between the business district and the Mississippi River, the North Loop neighborhood’s trendy and vibrant aura belies its deep industrial roots. It historically had been home to a railroad yard, factories and warehouses, the latter of which have been converted to other commercial uses, including as lofts and condos. Even in newly constructed buildings, developers generally have made an effort to model the area’s existing architecture.
The neighborhoods that constitute Southwest Minnesota – Armitage, Fulton, Lynnhurst, Kenny and Windom among them – all share a couple of defining features: Ease of access to major Twin Cities arteries including Crosstown Highway 62 and Interstate 35W. There is a relaxed, friendly vibe to the neighborhood that results from such close proximity to the lake life.In addition, Minnehaha Creek meanders through Southwest Minneapolis, providing for abundant opportunities to revel in nature along the cre
Look at a map of the West Calhoun neighborhood and two things immediately are apparent: The neighborhood’s boundaries look like the state of Minnesota, and the Minikahda Club golf course is the dominant land feature. Located on the west side of Lake Calhoun, the West Calhoun neighborhood features many apartment and condominium buildings, many of which rise high in the sky and provide stunning views of the lake.
