Economic Development

The City, County and other entities have current and planned redevelopment projects that benefit the Cleveland Neighborhood. The new Twin Stadium is about two miles of our community and is expected to lead to further development on the north end of Downtown. Additionally, Hennepin County is working continuing the reconstruction of Lowry Avenue in 2008 and 2009. Hennepin County has announced that it will begin building a new Mississippi River crossing at Lowry Avenue in 2009, which will open in 2011, replacing the 101 year old bridge that has been closed due to structural issues.
The City of Minneapolis has unveiled the West Broadway Alive plan as its vision for one of the Northside’s two commercial corridors. Additionally, the City has seen the construction of one part of the Penn-Lowry redevelopment, with the addition of over 30,000 square feet of retail and office space on the southeast corner of Penn and Lowry.
Improved transportation potential has been discussed with the potential for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Bottineau Blvd between Downtown Minneapolis and the Northwest Suburbs. Recently, the members of the County have been exploring Light Rail Transit (LRT) instead of BRT.
