South Uptown is a vibrant community
The South Uptown neighborhood is bounded by W. Lake Street to the north, W. 36th Street on the south, Hennepin Avenue to the west, and Lyndale Avenue on the east. The neighborhood is located within the Uptown area of southwest Minneapolis.
South Uptown has a population of nearly 6,000 residents of which more than 70% are renters. The neighborhood includes a wide range of apartments, condos, and single family homes, as well as a mix of local businesses in the Uptown, Lyn-Lake, and 36th & Bryant commercial areas. South Uptown neighbors love our walkable, tree-lined streets with easy access to Bryant Square Park, the lakes, Midtown Greenway, and downtown Minneapolis.
