Elliot Park Condos and Lofts - Minneapolis
Because the Elliot Park neighborhood offers older, reasonably priced housing, it is popular with young adults who may hold entry-level jobs at the hospitals or Downtown, or are students at the university or Augsburg or North Central. They value the economical housing, the convenience to jobs or school, the feeling of a traditional urban neighborhood, and of course, the handsome park itself. This accounts for the hundreds of units that have been rehabilitated over the past couple of decades. On the other hand, the high-end towers recently built on the west edge of Elliot Park neighborhood, Skyscape and Grant Park, appeal to another residential market altogether, the well-heeled with business and cultural attachments to Downtown.

History of the Elliot Park Neighborhood
Elliot Park was one of the earliest city parks, dating from 1883, when the first citywide parks plan was proposed, and the Board of Parks Commissioners was established by citizen vote. At the time, the new park, which was designed in the informal landscape style that was then the height of fashion, was way out in suburbia; indeed, when Minneapolis City Hall was constructed much closer in, beginning fifteen years later, its site on S. Third Avenue was hotly criticized because it was located "outside" of Downtown.

Not for long, however. Minneapolis (and its Downtown) grew explosively from the 1880s onward. While the Elliot Park neighborhood was initially built up with big country houses on ample lots, it had already become an urban neighborhood by the early twentieth century, when two private hospitals were built overlooking the park. These institutions, which eventually merged, provided a core of health care facilities, including later senior-citizen high-rise housing, that was strengthened when the new Hennepin County Hospital was constructed nearby in the 1970s. By then other institutions had gravitated to the area, not least North Central College, located across the park from the hospitals. With the opening of the Metrodome in 1982, the transformation of Elliot Park neighborhood from semi-rural to mixed-use urban was clearly accomplished, in just one year less than a century.
