Lowry Hill East

Location and General Characteristics

Lowry Hill East is named after Thomas Lowry, one of Minneapolis' original residents and developers. The neighborhood is in the Calhoun-Isles community and is bounded by Lake Street on the south, Hennepin Avenue on the west, Lyndale Avenue on the east, and the conjunction of Hennepin and Lyndale on the north. Because of its roughly triangular shape, Lowry Hill East is sometimes called "the Wedge." Lowry Hill East began its life as a community in the 1880s with the arrival of Thomas Lowry's public transportation system, the horse-drawn streetcar line. Lowry Hill East has a diversity of housing ranging from elegant turn-of-the-century residences to large, modern apartment buildings. Many of the larger homes have become converted to multiple-unit housing. Amenities in and near the neighborhood include proximity to downtown and a variety of shops, restaurants, food markets, service businesses and nearby cultural attractions.

Large houses built at the turn of the 20 th century line many streets and avenues in Lowry Hill East. After World War II, many of these houses deteriorated as people moved out of the city, and the homes were converted into rooming houses. Now a number of these homes are being restored to their original grandeur.
