The Minneapolis- North Loop was the shipping hub and also home to a huge railroad yard, and several areas brimming with factories and warehouses, including the Minneapolis Warehouse Historic District which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
North Loop’s Warehouse district transformed into the heart of the Minneapolis art scene in the 1980s, and in the 1990s, the buildings in the area grew in value and became sought after. Many of these spaces were converted into art galleries, one of which was the Wyman Building, which housed more than twenty art galleries.
Modern-day North Loop has now seen many of these old warehouses and factories being converted into retail spaces or condominiums and apartments. While some parts of North Loop continue to give off an industrial feel, many new buildings in the area are attempting to duplicate the style of the old warehouses.
North Loop has become popular amongst those who work in downtown Minneapolis due to its proximity to the central business district. The short distance allows residents to walk, ride a bike or take a short bus trip or train ride to work.
Forbes magazine has deemed the Minneapolis-North Loop to be one of the best hipster communities in America, since the town is brimming with bike trails, art galleries, and an arts collective Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art.
The area also features a park, several cafes, restaurants, bars and retail stores have moved into the neighborhood.
