Downtown West is a neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. It is, as the name suggests, a section of downtown that is further inland, west from the banks of the Mississippi river. St. Louis City Hall, the Peabody Opera House, the Scottrade Center arena, and St. Louis Union Station are all located in Downtown West. The Washington Avenue Historic District is a former garment district consisting of turn of the previous century high rise warehouses converted into residential lofts, restaurants, taverns, and coffee shops. It is bounded by Jefferson Avenue on the west, Tucker Boulevard on the east, Cole Street on the north, and Chouteau Avenue on the south. In 2017, residents started referring to the neighborhood as the Loft District in an effort to rebrand the area and differentiate it from the distinct downtown neighborhood.
In 2010 Downtown West's racial makeup was 56.3% White, 36.9% Black, 0.3% Native American, 3.7% Asian, 2.9% Two or More Races, and 0.9% Some Other Race. 2.6% of the population was of Hispanic or Latino origin.
