Get to Know the Seward Neighborhood

April 21, 2021 by DRG

The Seward neighborhood’s proximity to downtown makes it a convenient and desirable location for exciting urban living. The area southeast of Minneapolis borders the Midtown Greenway to the west and the Mississippi River to the east. Close to parks, bike trails and Light Rail, Seward has a small town feel in the shadows of the big city. Here are a few ideas for eating, shopping and strolling through this historic neighborhood.


Take a Tour of the Seward Redesign

Milwaukee Ave.

In the 1960s, plans were underway for the demolition of most of the homes on Milwaukee Avenue in the west half of the Seward neighborhood. Residents banded together to protest the new development and ended up renovating or reconstructing 164 units of housing to preserve the character and affordability of the Milwaukee Avenue Historic District.
