CONDOS AND LOFTS IN THE LYNDALE NEIGHBORHOOD
Bounded by Lake, Lyndale, 36th Street, and I-35W, Lyndale is a classic Southside neighborhood. Other than along the Lake Street and Nicollet Avenue commercial strips, and the 1970s redevelopment area around Nicollet and Lake, Lyndale is residential in character. More than a third of the neighborhood's housing is provided by apartments, condos, and townhouses; single-family houses are most prominent west of Blaisdell.

A brief history of the Lyndale Neighborhood in Minneapolis
The intersection of Nicollet and Lake was traditionally considered to be the heart of South Minneapolis, a perception that was reinforced by the presence of Nicollet Field, the city's ballpark for its AAA-league team, the Minneapolis Millers. The team was a farm club of the New York Giants, and boasted rising stars like future Hall-of-Famer Willie Mays on its rosters, before the team was disbanded and the ballpark demolished after the Twins arrived in 1961, to play at a new stadium in Bloomington, now the site of Mall of America.
Lyndale is a stable, unpretentious neighborhood. Its population has grown modestly in recent decades, while its median-family income is somewhat lower than the citywide average. Two landmarks by the nationally prominent Prairie School architects, Purcell & Elmslie, are found here: the 1908-1909 Stewart Memorial Presbyterian Church, at 32nd and Stevens; and the delightfully small-scaled 1915 Bachus House, located at 212 W. 36th Street.

The Wedge in Minneapolis
Reflecting its distinctive shape, this neighborhood located between Lyndale Avenue and Hennepin Avenue, perceptually extending south to the 29th Street Midtown Greenway, is universally known as The Wedge. Up through the Second World War, this was the undisputed realm of a prosperous middle class, which built sizeable houses in any of several styles, from Eastlake, to Queen Anne, to the occasional Prairie Style design. The neighborhood was (and remains) within a short walk of Lake of the Isles, tied closely to Downtown and to convenience shopping at Hennepin and Lake by frequent bus service.
Alas, like many urban neighborhoods, nationwide, The Wedge lost its middle-class-family neighborhood cachet after the war. Many of its houses were subdivided. In the process the area came to be perceived as a counter-culture, rental neighborhood. By the 1970s, house prices had fallen to the point that properties were almost-irresistible bargains, especially when compared to the adjacent East Isles.
So a new generation, many families with children, began to move into The Wedge. Houses were rehabilitated, and reconverted back to single-family. Now it was the perception of a transitory rental area that went into decline. Yet not all of its previous character went unappreciated by the new homeowners. To some, perhaps many new residents, the previous counter-culture image was a plus, at least within bounds. And indeed, this has come to pass, institutionalized in the form of the Wedge co-op on Lyndale Avenue.
