Minneapolis Warehouse District and North Loop* (1:00pm-5:00pm)

Wednesday, September 13

Take a tour Minneapolis’ fastest growing neighborhood. The Minneapolis Warehouse District, including the North Loop, makes an attractive argument for urban revitalization in a historic district. The neighborhood enjoys great accessibility to public transportation, a diverse economic footprint with an explosion in housing, and close proximity to downtown. In this tour we will examine how the neighborhood has evolved, including issues of accessibility and safety in a historical context, how the neighborhood association fought for their own school, and the ripple effect of revitalizing warehouse districts.

Facilitators: 

  • Phil Ailiff, North Loop Neighborhood Association Board of Directors and Minneapolis Pedestrians Advisory Committee
  • Christian Huelsman, Executive Director, Spring in Our Steps
