Downtown views are not important to everyone but to many it is the very reason why purchasing a condo downtown Minneapolis is appealing. I want to highlight 5 different Minneapolis neighborhoods and condo developments that I would recommend under $200,000.
Neighborhood: Mill District/Downtown East
Current Inventory: 11 condos with views of downtown Minneapolis
The Breakdown: The current options available in Riverwest under 200k are all 1 bedroom condos ranging from 618 sq ft- 832 sq ft. Riverwest is a great option for both downtown skyline and striking views of the Mississippi River. All current available units under the 200k price point are on the downtown side of the building but there are 3 options on the river side not far away in price point around the low 200’s. The location along the riverfront is hard to beat and the inventory is on the lower end of the price scale for the neighborhood.
2. Herschel Lofts
Current Inventory: 1 loft with views of downtown Minneapolis
The Breakdown: The Hershel Lofts is one of the few buildings in the North Loop that have views of the Minneapolis skyline under 200k. The historic warehouse conversion is perfectly positioned for optimal views from every loft in the building. The current inventory consists of a 723 sq ft, ground floor, 1 bedroom corner unit with a large patio space, ideal for those pre-game grill outs. If you are looking for a loft style space near Target Field keep an eye on the building as more options come available.
Neighborhood: St. Anthony Main/NE Mpls
Current Inventory: 4 condos with downtown/neighborhood views
The Breakdown: The views from the St. Anthony Main side of the river are unique to the downtown condo market having both southern exposure and the Mississippi River in the foreground. There is currently a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom condos available under 200k with a square footage ranging from 916-1205. If your condo does not face directly downtown, have no worries, there is no lack of common space on the rooftop deck.
Neighborhood: Elliot Park
Current Inventory: 2 condos for sale with southern exposure
The Breakdown: Post auction, the Skyscape Condominiums do not have many options remaining in the building under $200,000. The units available for purchase currently are both on the sunny south side of the building positioned away from high-rises downtown. Both are one-bedroom units ranging from 710-780 sq ft and starting at $159,900. The views at Skyscape are split between more of a bird’s eye view of various Minneapolis neighborhoods and the central business district. If views, proximity to the central business district and up to date amenities are important to you this would be a great option to explore.
Current Inventory: 2 remaining condos with downtown views
The Breakdown: Located on Eat Street along the border of downtown and Uptown Minneapolis the Eat Street Flats is a 4-story new construction condominium development with retail on the 1st floor. The remaining inventory boasting downtown views start at $164,900 for a 1 bedroom condo and range between 732-736 sq ft. The 3rd and 4th floor have unobstructed downtown views that light up like a Christmas tree at night. The building is FHA approved and the 2 available condos have never been lived in. This would be a great option for new construction under 200k.
