(Literally) paint the town at the new 38th Street Station

Posted on 20 February 2018 by calvin

Aiming to help transform the blocks around 38th and Hiawatha into the Twin Cities’ next great neighborhood hub, the developers of 38th Street Station have issued a call to the community.

“We know that the new places we love most build on community input, and reflect the context and character of the neighborhood. We hope the residents will be excited to lend their ideas and their creativity to create a great place,” said Michael Lander of Lander Group Urban Placemaking.

3828, the first phase 38th Street Station’s vision, opened Feb. 1 to new residents. It will also host Lander Group’s offices, moving over from 38th and Nicollet.

Lander Group is hoping the neighborhood will speak up for what they want to see in the 2000 square feet of ground floor commercial space yet to be leased. The spaces are now part of the “In Like a Lion” campaign run on Hoodstarter (go to and search for “38th”), in partnership with the City of Minneapolis. The Hoodstarter website gives people the chance to post ideas and vote on the types of businesses and uses for empty space in their neighborhood.

Feeling creative? The Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood Association (SENA) is working with GoodSpace Murals to coordinate a community designed- and painted mural alongside one of the new buildings at 38th Street Station. They’ll host Community Design and Paint days over the course of 2018. Sign up to learn more and get involved.
