Lowry Avenue Corridor
Project Type: Neighborhood Revitalization; Minneapolis, MN
Client: Hennepin County
LHB is working with Hennepin County, the City of Minneapolis and several neighborhoods along Lowry Avenue in north Minneapolis to complete Phase II of the master plan for a two-mile stretch of this critical urban corridor. This ambitious redesign is revitalizing the neighborhood by improving the corridor’s aesthetics, safety, access to public transportation, and opportunities for economic growth. Design goals of the project included congregating services, retail, and office space around transit nodes and effectively linking civic spaces through pedestrian, bicycle, and transit connections. Lowry Avenue will be enhanced with well-lit landscaped boulevards, new sidewalks, and bicycle lanes on both sides of the street.
