The Gaviidae center is located in downtown Minneapolis in the Gaviidae Commons on the corner of 6th St and Nicollet Mall. Once inside Gaviidae you will find a hallway just to the right of Bruegger's Bagels. We are the first door on the right (Suite 135). You can park in the Gaviidae parking ramp. The entrance is on 6th St., just past the skyway and Bruegger's Bagels, on the right. There are two reserved spots for Bright Horizons along the right wall by the elevators. If those are full we can validate 30 minutes of parking in the lot.
