October 18, 2019 by Joe Grunnet

Do you crave being surrounded by all the action in downtown Minneapolis? Then Downtown West and the Business District may be the perfect place for you! By day, explore the city from above from the 11-mile long Minneapolis Skyline. At night, enjoy some of the city’s trendiest bars, restaurants, music venues, theaters, and more!

A Brief History of Downtown West and the Business District

In the latter half of the 19th century, the converging corridors of Hennepin, Washington, and Nicollet Avenues provided a foundation for the city’s first commercial center. Nearly a century-and-a-half later, Minneapolis’ central Business District continues to thrive as the financial, cultural, and retail heart of the city.

Today, residents and visitors alike can witness the ever-evolving district. From attracting world class theater tours, sold out music tours performed at Target Field, or the newly renovated Target Center, the Business District has something for everyone!

Getting excited about the prospect of living in a bustling district? We thought you might be.
