Living in downtown Cedar Rapids puts you right in the center of all the action, and has been awarded one of the Best Places for Affordable Homes by CNN’s Fortune and Money Magazine. 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.
As a part of our community development initiatives, our Development Committee works with community leaders and developers to bring more housing options to the downtown core and neighboring areas. For several years, our Urban Living event has drawn families, young professionals, and empty-nesters out to see inside some of these in-demand properties and get a feel for living in the area. Downtown has a unique variety of housing options, including loft projects in the New Bohemia Neighborhood that offer the type of eclectic urban living spaces considered unique to our community.
