A Downtown Council task force, comprised largely of business people from the Elliot Park & Mill District/Downtown East neighborhoods, has been working for the past year on creating a brand name for a new “district” defined as the boundaries of the 2 neighborhoods combined. As reported by the MSP Business Journal last week, the task force has released a list of potential names: Celebration Heights, East Loop, Newsmaker Park and a bunch more (more below).
Do we need a new “district”? If a new district is created, what should it be named?
Potential names for the new district from the task force:
East Central District
East Central Park
East Central Square
East Downtown Promenade
Mississippi Heights Park
Mississippi Heights Square
Mississippi River Heights
Portland and Park
