Social. Walkable. Cultural.
Springfield's Downtown Neighborhood
Keep up to date with event and meeting info in West Central.
We enjoy our walkable amenities including sidewalk cafes, coffee shops and breweries. Downtown is the region's home for live theatre and nightlife. Recent investments of $100 million include Hotel Vandivort, Heer's Building and the Vecino Group's four historic
loft renovations on Park Central East. West Central has a rich historical legacy and is home to many historical markers.
Architects, designers, financial advisors, attorneys and more choose Downtown. Young professionals are attracted to downtown's vibrancy and can find plenty of housing choices from impressive lofts to historic single-family homes. Varying price points still offer the historic character we are known for, and walking and biking commutes are more sustainable.
Missouri State University has a strong presence in the neighborhood with its international students, urban research park (IDEA Commons), alumni center and campus housing. Entrepreneurship is fostered at the renovated e-Factory and One Million Cups weekly presentations.
