The importance of the Midtown Greenway

Posted on 25 October 2017 by calvin

The Midtown Community Works collaborative is celebrating 20 years worth of development and success on the Midtown Greenway. This continued investment in the corridor has helped catalyze:
• $1 billion increase in property value within ¼ mile of the greenway
• 1.5 million square feet of new commercial space
• 4,390 new multifamily housing units
• More than $750 million in public and private investment
• Creation of thousands of new jobs in the corridor
• An increase in cycling in Minneapolis
• Over 5,000 plantings of trees and shrubs along the greenway

Also, the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners has approved up to $765,000 for the final implementation of the Midtown Community Works program, which includes:
• Improving wayfinding
• Completing key bicycle and pedestrian connections
• Enhancing public space infrastructure

As a part of the collaborative, the Lake Street Council is looking forward to strengthening the connection between Lake Street and Midtown Greenway for businesses, residents, and tourists.
