400′ of Premium Riverfront, Very Spacious
In the spirit of Minneapolis’ Biggest Fixer-Upper, I offer . . . Minneapolis’ biggest walkout.
That would be the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, facing the Mississippi River on the northwest side of downtown Minneapolis.
At least, the north, walkout side of the building faces the river (photo at right); the glass facade front, facing Hennepin (photo below), hardly suggests the building’s scale and superb river setting and adjoining plaza.
Best way to see it?
On a bike, from the trail alongside the river.
“By bike” would also be the best way to get to a Twins game at Target Field, at least on a nice day coming from anywhere within 10 miles or so to the West.
The Cedar Lake Trail is not only more direct than 394 — it’s also faster! (at least from Cedar Lake in Minneapolis).
P.S.: The Bank’s address was set as 90 Hennepin Avenue, to match its 9th district designation.
