• Nicollet Mall

    Construction for a new Nicollet Mall will include features that prioritize the space for pedestrians including trees, enhanced sidewalk spaces, improved lighting, and places for everyone to enjoy the mall. The Nicollet Mall Project stretches one mile from Grant Street at the south to Washington Avenue at the north. The northern and southern ends of the project will include dense greening known as the Mississippi Woods and Loring Woods, respectively, and will converge into areas of greening known as groves before reaching the center of Nicollet Mall featuring the Light Walk and Art Walk.
