"At the heart of it all..."

Loring Park was once known as Central Park because of the central location of it within downtown Minneapolis. It really is part of the epicenter of Minneapolis, and is comprised mainly of commercial, retail, and cultural spaces. Those homes that do exist within the Loring Park neighborhood are going to cost more than average, and many of the residential spaces are rental units in multi-resident buildings. On the inexpensive side of the purchase price for a small home in this area you can expect to pay at least $200,000 - $300,000, but don’t be shocked by prices in the million dollar range.
There are people who can afford, and are more than willing to pay for this prime location. Loring Park is home to so many significant landmarks in the Twin Cities area. The Basilica of Saint Mary, Dunwoody Institute, University of Saint Thomas-Minneapolis Campus, and the Walker Art Center and Sculpture Garden are just a short distance from each other in this community. It is absolutely beautiful to drive into Loring Park and see these sights waiting for you.
The social and cultural life of Minneapolis is well represented in Loring Park, and even if you don’t plan to move there you can take advantage of all of the wonderful amenities. The shops, restaurants, and ethnically diverse offerings all add to the metropolitan feel of it all. There are outdoor festivals, activities in the park, concerts, and more throughout the year. Even with all of this hustle and bustle, Loring Park remains a fairly clean and beautiful part of the city. Loring Park really does feel like it is at the heart of it all in Minneapolis.
