A great many opportunities exist along West Broadway Avenue in North Minneapolis for local residents and businesses alike. With a close proximity to the central business district of downtown Minneapolis, the adjacency to the Mississippi River, freeway access, and lower than average real estate prices, the West Broadway corridor remains an under utilized asset ripe with potential. This report, written in conjunction with the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) and the West Broadway Business and Coalition (WBC) builds off of the parameters established within the West Broadway Alive plan and examines several case studies of similar redevelopment scenarios. Further, with the aspiration of maintaining the unique character of the corridor while implementing forward-thinking growth strategies, this paper will detail the opportunities currently present along the West Broadway corridor. Facilitating internal and external investment into the West Broadway community must be a priority and the following pages with identify potential strategies that can be employed by the WBC and the City of Minneapolis to attract new businesses to the West Broadway corridor.
