Northeast Minneapolis Lofts and Condos
University / Marcy Holmes
Set deep within the larger, official Marcy-Holmes neighborhood defined by planners is an actual neighborhood, best experienced by a leisurely walk along 5th Street SE between 4th and 8th avenues to appreciate the post-civil-war houses, especially the Italianate Fisk House at 424 5th Street.
Outside of this authentic and appealing community core, any traditional neighborhood feeling is pretty much overwhelmed elsewhere in Marcy-Holmes by commercial and industrial uses, the massive intrusion of I-35W (even if depressed below grade), the eternally funky Dinkytown, an increasing preponderance of student-rental housing closer to the campus, and, of course, by the sheer presence of University itself.
Recent development along the riverfront is establishing another Marcy-Holmes residential community, albeit of an entirely different character from the small-scale, 19th-century neighborhood on the other side of Fourth Street SE. Well more than a thousand new housing units are under development or already open near the historic mill buildings lined up along SE Main Street, east of Main Place. Built within the Saint Anthony Falls Historic District, this setting is to be visually defined by the landmark Pillsbury "A" Mill at 3rd Avenue SE. The housing will be available in a range of plans and prices, and of course is attractive for the marvelous Downtown skyline view across the river, abundant public green space along Main Street, and a convenient location between the University and Downtown.
Sometimes called "Nordeast", Northeast Minneapolis is the oldest neighborhood in the city. It was originally a thriving industrial area populated by grain mills and sawmills, but today's Northeast Minneapolis is a happening arts district, with hundreds of studios, countless galleries, restaurants, theatres, and coffee shops. This district is an almost seamless mix of new and old: stylish new condo projects next to spectacular lofts in turn-of-the-century brownstones; trendy sidewalk coffee shops nestled in among neighborhood favorites like Surdyk's Liquor and Kramarczuk's Sausage House.

Northeast / St. Anthony West
Nicollet Island / East Bank
The 47-acre island and the adjacent East Hennepin commercial district offer a little bit of everything: the very old and the brand new, commercial failures and market successes, detached houses and housing in towers, restored historic buildings and lasting historic institutions (including a Polka bar), and a developing public landscape along the riverfront.
Nicollet Island, named after an early 19th-century French scientist-explorer, is now completely changed from its historic role as an industrial area with a smattering of low-rent worker's houses. Splendidly refurbished, these late-19th-century houses, located on the island's north end, are now home to some of the city's elite. Industrial uses on the south end have been removed in favor of an expansive city park. In between are De La Salle High School, which has occupied its site for more than a century, the boutique Nicollet Island Inn, and the restored Grove Street Flats, the architectural star of the island. Unsurprisingly, the district's median family income also changed radically, from well below the citywide average before all these changes, to way above today.
Riverplace, a failed 1980s festival marketplace is located on the East Bank, just across a narrow channel of the Mississippi. Its residential towers formed a critical mass of housing for the recently built apartments and townhouses centered around First Avenue NE and 2 nd Street NE. The festival program, which bombed in most U.S. cities, has been succeeded by an eclectic mixture of offices, retail, and restaurants, which merge almost seamlessly into the Main Place development east of Central Avenue. Other than the placid residential precinct on the north tip of Nicollet Island, this area is pretty active, with substantial traffic on the major streets. But it is also well served by multiple bus lines, and convenient to both Downtown and the University.
