"Core of Minneapolis Business"

Situated at the core of downtown Minneapolis is the neighborhood of Downtown West, which is also the Central Business District of Minneapolis. Home to Fortune 500 companies, upscale retail stores, luxury hotels, and trendy boutiques, the Downtown West community is the epitome of a neighborhood of success.

The Nicollet Mall runs south from Washington Avenue and is filled with extensive dining and shopping options for residents and visitors. Near that you have Hennepin Avenue which runs south from the Mississippi River and provides numerous locations for theatres, the arts, and entertainment. Downtown West is also the proud home of the Minnesota Orchestra, founded in 1903 and located in the Nicollet Mall.
The Downtown West neighborhood is not extensively residential, but there are apartment buildings and condos amid the office buildings, shops, and hotels. The residential spaces are often small one or two bedroom units, but for a steeper price tag than you might find in nearby communities. While many people spend their days in Downtown West, only a small number actually call it home.

In order to help create and maintain a positive atmosphere and environment, the Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association (DMNA) works with residents and business owners in Downtown West to provide support services and improvement projects, as well as serve as a liaison between the residents and the developing agencies.
