The neighborhoods around downtown are bursting with cool new rental options, including several along the Mississippi River and in the Loring Park neighborhood where 430 Oak Grove recently opened. Though there’s no doorman, 430 offers the kind of lifestyle you’d associate with New York’s Upper East Side. Apartments were crafted from a historic office building and no two floor plans are alike. Plus, lovely Loring Park is across the street and the shops and restaurants of downtown are within walking distance. 430 Oak Grove St., Mpls.; 612-767-8780,
