If you are looking for downtown Minneapolis condos, you will mostly be choosing from high-rises or warehouse style living. If you don’t want to live right downtown but want to stay inside the city of Minneapolis, there will also be lowrises, manors/villas and converted mansions to choose from. These last three selections typically have fewer units per building, hence fewer neighbors. The high-rise condos, more typical of downtown Minneapolis tend to have either underground parking or an attached ramp and one or more spaces assigned to the condominium, you purchase. Also typical of the downtown Minneapolis condos are a front (public) entrance, and usually a rear (loading) entrance for when you are moving in or out or carrying heavy loads.

These neighborhoods were primarily built up in the 19 teens and 1920s, but this was a time when houses were more popular than condos. So in the 50s 60s 70s and 80s, many of the leftover land turned into condos, and huge homes now turned into multiunit condo buildings. These Minneapolis condominiums tend to have a very community-oriented feel as there are fewer units and you tend to know all, or most of, your neighbors.
