While this was once the western half of the city, the city core has developed in the heart of Downtown West, making it the center of the downtown area and home to the tall skyscrapers that dot the skyline. This neighborhood is not signed as of the spring of 2008.

Elliot Park Neighborhood Sign   Elliot Park

Elliot Park is named for the large park of the same name. The park is named in honor of Dr. Joseph Elliot, who farmed this land and later donated the land to the city to create a large park.

Loring Park Neighborhood Sign   Loring Park

Loring Park is named for the large park of the same name. The park is named in honor of Charles Loring, the first superintendent of the Minneapolis park system. The park is situated around Loring Lake, a very scenic area located at the southwest corner of downtown.

North Loop Neighborhood Sign   North Loop

The North Loop neighborhood takes its name from its location at the northwest corner of the highway system that forms a loop around downtown Minneapolis.

Stevens Square - Loring Heights Neighborhood Sign   Stevens Square - Loring Heights

Stevens Square is an area of three story housing units built in the early 1900s. The development is named in honor of Colonel John Stevens, an early settler. The western part of the neighborhood is located on higher ground that overlooks Loring Lake. It was only natural to call this area Loring Heights.
