East Village

11th Avenue South between Eighth and Ninth streets South

This mixed income housing and commercial development involves the creation of a small urban village on the edge of downtown Minneapolis. Located in Elliot Park, the existing buildings on this block were deteriorating, and the neighborhood wanted to improve the area and its image. The neighborhood committed $500,000 of its funds toward the proposed development. It includes 179 units of affordable and market-rate housing, neighborhood retail and extensive landscaping. Seventy units are located in East Village North, a combination of townhouse and apartment units, and 109 apartment units are located in East Village South. The completed development has transformed the area into an inviting urban village.
