North Side



This large, diverse, and vibrant community is both very urban and very green. Its urban core is emerging as a laboratory for uplift and revitalization, as developers, architects, and builders collaborate to create moderate-income and artists' live-work housing and innovative arts organizations and retailers work to make the area a creative hub. Its neighborhoods boast the classic Minneapolis mix of parklands (including Jordan, GlenGale, Victory, and Cottage parks) urban trails (Victory Memorial Parkway in the Victory neighborhood offers runners, dog walkers, skaters, bikers, and strollers a broad swathe of scenic open space), business hubs, including burgeoning centers along Broadway and at Penn and Lowry and Penn and 44th, and award-winning amenities like the Workhouse Theater, Steamworks Coffee and Tea, and the Victory 44 restaurant.
