"Biz, Arts, Parks & Pubs"

Downtown St. Paul is not only an arts, entertainment, and business hub, but is also home to over 8,000 residents who enjoy living in close proximity to the Mississippi River, Rice and Mears Parks, and the community festivals that inhabit those parks every season.

One of St. Paul’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, Lowertown boasts historic buildings, a vibrant arts community, and the popular St. Paul Farmers’ Market. All downtown residents are within minutes of every part of the Twin Cities with great freeway access.

"Great History and Charm"

Downtown St. Paul has been "evolving" for many years. Recent additions include fabulous lofts, St. Paul Farmer's Market, the historic Depot and soon the new St. Paul Saint's Ballpark. They already have the Excel Center with the Minnesota Wild and some outstanding restaurants. Fun neighborhood bars and always lots of things to do. Walk or bike the river front to enjoy our ever changing seasons. Downtown St. Paul is perfect for those seeking a little less hustle and bustle of Minneapolis.
Pros
  • Cool Living Spaces
  • St. Paul Farmer's Market
  • Excel Energy Center/Minnesota Wild

"Lowertown Rocks"

Downtown itself can get a tad quiet, but hop slightly east to Lowertown for a great arts scene, fun bars, and interesting locals. Lots of warehouse/lofts/condo space, and a great Farmers Market
