In the 19th century, the North Loop was a bustling hub of commercial and industrial activity. Today, the spacious warehouses and turn-of-the-century industrial aesthetic have been preserved, but everything else in this cosmopolitan neighborhood has transformed to suit the modern lifestyles of its residents.
Bounded by Interstates 94 and 394, the North Loop is blissfully isolated from the traffic and bustle of the neighboring downtown area while retaining all the culture and convenience of urban living. Locally owned luxury boutiques and upscale restaurants share the district’s commercial spaces with casual cafes, dive bars and artist-run galleries.
The North Loop has seen more development than any other part of Minneapolis in the past decade as aging warehouses were converted into modern lofts and ambitious new condos rose alongside them. Expect that trend to continue as the recently completed Target Field and the under-construction multi-modal transportation hub known as the Interchange increase the desirability of the neighborhood.
