Midtown, Minneapolis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Midtown is a loosely defined region in south Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. There are no hard-set boundaries to the midtown area, but it is generally agreed to include the area in the vicinity of Lake Street between Interstate 35W and Hiawatha Avenue. Lake Street is the border between the Phillips and Powderhorn communities of Minneapolis. Lake Street/Midtown LRT Station, with service on the METRO Blue Line, is located on the eastern edge of the area.

The midtown area was historically known as being somewhat of a run-down area.[citation needed] However, in the past decade or two, there has been a large revitalization effort along Lake Street, driven largely by an insurgence of new Latino and Northeast African businesses.[citation needed]

Near the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Lake Street is the Midtown Exchange building, which was a Sears department store and mail-order catalog facility until the company closed it in 1994. After sitting vacant for a decade, the building was fully redeveloped. It features office space, residential units, and the Midtown Global Market, a large marketplace featuring an ethnically diverse variety of restaurants, grocers, and retailers.

Other indoor markets that have opened in the midtown area include the Mercado Central[1] (at Bloomington Ave and Lake St), which houses numerous Latino businesses, and the Lake Plaza (at 3rd Ave and Lake St), which houses Somali and Latino businesses. As of January 2009, a new market has opened in the former True Value Hardware site at the Hi-Lake Shopping Center (21st Ave and Lake St), housing Somali businesses.

At 22nd Ave and Lake Street (in the parking lot of Anishinabe Academy School) the Midtown Farmers' Market operates on Tuesdays and Saturdays from late spring to early autumn.

Many places and groups use the "midtown" descriptor in their names. Examples include:
