Community Development


Downtown Cedar Rapids is full of life! This district features a variety of dining and shopping options, a vibrant arts and culture community, and exciting nightlife. The Economic Alliance works with area businesses and non-profits to support the creation of a beautiful, sustainable downtown area for all ages. Join us to Dine, Dwell and Do in Downtown Cedar Rapids!


We have great restaurants in our downtown area. From a unique, locally sourced meal of fresh greens and perfectly cooked pork chops, to a quick slice of pizza or hotdog, we've got it all.


Living in downtown Cedar Rapids puts you right in the center of all the action. Our housing options continue to expand, and the demand increases with every new development. We're working hard to bring a variety of options for every price point to the area.


Take in a show at Theatre Cedar Rapids, or see a great act perform at the U.S. Cellular Center. Shop at a boutique or visit a new hairdresser. We've got amazing cultural attractions, great shopping, parks and more. You won't be bored in our downtown area!
