Downtown Kalamazoo, Inc.

Kalamazoo's Central Business District (CBD) is the centerpoint of southwest Michigan's largest metropolitan area.  Nearly 15,000 people work in the CBD, and approximately 1,200 people call downtown their home - most reside in loft apartments and condominiums.  Lodging is also abundant, including a range of both hotel and bed & breakfast options.

The CBD is home to dozens of unique dining and specialty shopping destinations, as well as to many of the area's arts and entertainment amenities.  The Kalamazoo Mall serves as the main thoroughfare for enjoying downtown life.  Adjacent areas also provide a unique variety of experiences - from a concert at Bronson Park to the one of a dozen annual festivals at Arcadia Creek Festival Place, and from the galleries of Park Trades Center to the live concerts at the Kalamazoo State Theater.  There is much to do in downtown Kalamazoo for those who live, work, and visit here!

Downtown is roughly bounded by Lovell Street to the south, Pitcher Street/King Highway to the East, Willard Street to the north, and Michikal Street/Stadium Drive to the west.
