The mall was under construction and we had hoped to hear it would be a pedestrian area when done but apparently not. It gave us a great orientation for downtown and with more retail it would be great for tourists.

What a disappointment! Stores are closed or vacant retail space. Off fifth and Marshall's dark, depressing and old retail space- absolutely needs new tenants and a facelift. Wow! Avoid at all costs!

My rating is based on what Nicollet Mall was, and what it should be in less than a year's time. Right now, it's a hideous mess of construction. Nicollet Mall is intended to be a pedestrian mall, and prior to construction, it was one of the homes of the summer Farmer's Market. Nicollet Mall goes up to 12th Street, near... More

Nicollet Mall looks exactly as it did one year ago: A disaster zone. It is amazing that a project like this would take two years - or more. Nicollet Mall was once a masterpiece of urban planning - thriving and alive. Now, stores have closed or are closing and the entire area is sad and barren.

Nice run of shops and food places. Was here during Christmas season and it was special. Minneapolis can be proud this was created.

with the mall being under construction it is alittle difficult to get it a fair rating, but being knowable about the upcoming changes and the condition the mall was in before construction I am looking forward to the completion, so be overlook the process it is going under and prepare to enjoy the new mall

. . . I'm tired of trying to drive in downtown Minneapolis. If you've ever been there you know what I mean. Take a bus or bike or light rail or if you have to drive in downtown Minneapolis I hope your GPS takes into account bus lanes, bus streets, bike lanes, light rail routes, road construction, no cars allowed...

Decent place to hang around for people watching when the weather is nice, not so great when it's cold. If you like shopping the bigger chain stores, this place has them. If you like shopping local, this may not be to your liking.

When you say mall to a woman, this is not what we expect. It was a let down. Needs more main stream store line up and more activities. Except for bars and restraints, it shuts down at dark.
