It’s no surprise that Super Bowl LII will bring a bright spotlight to Minneapolis-St. Paul and the surrounding area. And one neighborhood is ready to shine just in time – East Town in Minneapolis.
East Town – or Downtown East, as some still know it – has undergone a dramatic transformation since the end of the last economic recession. Within a five- or six-block area, hundreds of apartments and hotels, more than 1.4 million square feet (msf) of office space, a two-block public park, and of course, a brand new stadium, have risen on the former sites of parking lots or underutilized buildings. The neighborhood’s retail and restaurant scene also continues to evolve, especially as more workers and residents spend time in the neighborhood.
Downtown Minneapolis office broker Mark Stevens gave an interview to The New York Times on East Town, with information about how much more valuable the land within the neighborhood is, and how the new developments are transforming the area’s reputation and feel. Check it out here.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Minneapolis-St. Paul office also recently published an East Town Guide, a full brochure with information on where to eat, shop, live, work and play in the neighborhood. You can see that report in its entirety here.
