The North Loop of Minneapolis is no stranger to accolades. It’s been named, among other things, a “Favorite Neighborhood” by Fast Company, “Coolest Neighborhood in America” by Thrillist, and it appeared on Fodor’s “Go List” of top 25 travel destinations in the world. So, it should be no surprise that it’s become the fastest growing neighborhood in the Twin Cities for both residences and businesses.
Named for the trolleys that served the area, the once industrial area is now home to numerous warehouses and factories that have been converted to offices, condos or apartments. With more than 2,200 households and 9,500 jobs, according to the 2010 census, the North Loop has successfully transformed into the city’s creative hub for the art, culture, culinary and entertainment scene. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
