Changes in the Skyline


Pictured here is the Minneapolis skyline as seen from Witch’s Hat Tower in the Prospect Park Neighborhood of Minneapolis. In the foreground (behind the brick school building) is Stadium Village, where one can see the current construction of a 20 story luxury apartment building. I believe the construction of this building, as well as many of those around it, is an example of “warm area development” along the Green Line. It will be interesting to see how this type of development impacts the greater Prospect Park neighborhood, which boasts a mix of light industrial buildings and single family homes. I imagine property along and near the Green Line will continue to develop, while the more residential areas of the neighborhood may fight development in an effort to maintain a ‘neighborhood feel.’
