Minneapolis features a number of vibrant and upbeat neighborhoods that are full of fun things to see and do, but few compare to the one-and-only Uptown on the city’s southwest side. A funky location that’s full of trendy restaurants, several theaters, countless coffee shops, and plenty of shopping along the way, if you’re ever bored and are looking for a fun way to pass the time on any given day or night of the week, swing by the Uptown neighborhood and you’ll find there’s almost always something going on.
Though it may not seem like it, Uptown in downtown Minneapolis is more than just an eclectic commercial district. Today, more than 30,000 people call this part of the city home and many residents reside in some of the coolest residential living spaces you’ll find anywhere in town.
The stylish stretch of loft-style townhouses along Colfax Avenue, which are technically part of Lowry Hill East, have been turning heads since they were first developed back in 2004, while Uptown is also home to one of our favorite condo developments in the entire city—The Residences at Edgewater.
Plenty of outdoor recreation also makes Uptown a great place to live, as the neighborhood’s west side is pushed right up against Lake Calhoun. Miles of walking/biking trails and pathways run up and down the shoreline here and for golf lovers, you’ll only be a short drive across the lake to Minikahda Club—one of Minneapolis’ most exclusive golf clubs.
For buyers looking for a true urban living experience and are open to living just outside of the core downtown area, you’ll never go wrong with starting your home search right here in Uptown.
