EAST TOWN PRINT_CW_Generic

EAST TOWN A transformation – or rather, an explosion , has taken place in one of Minneapolis’s strategically located downtown neighborhoods. Once considered a fringe pocket of the CBD, the building of two flagship developments: US Bank Stadium , home to the Vikings, and Wells Fargo Towers has anchored the neighborhood’s new vibrancy. The neighborhood has a new 4.2 acre public park, The Commons , and is only a few blocks away from the trails and green spaces of the Mississippi River and Stone Arch Bridge.
