About the Northeast District

Guthrie Theater in Northeast District of Minneapolis
East Town itself is comprised of three unique neighborhoods in Minneapolis: Mill District, Downtown East and Elliot Park. The neighborhood’s recent renaissance combined with its close proximity to downtown has made the area an emerging destination for families and young professionals. Expect this trend to continue as ground breaks on the new Viking’s Stadium, which is poised to spur even more development in coming years.

In its efforts to continue to grow with the demand, The East Town Development group was formed to help work with the Minneapolis Downtown Council on The Downtown 2025 Plan. The group is hoping to set forth motion for continued development in the area.

Many residents flock to East Town to find Minneapolis condos and apartments located close to the Mississippi River and to the business district. With riverfront views and easy access to landmarks, such as The Guthrie and the Stone Arch Bridge, it is not surprising this area is one of the most popular in Minneapolis.
