1/2 Mile to US Bank Stadium! Great Downtown Minneapolis Location!

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 BR, 1BA in Downtown, close to Light Rail, Interstate access, Major Sports

This apartment is in a beautiful building that has been totally renovated inside, and out- no surface is untouched! This wasn't just a 'quick paint' renovation- kitchens and bathrooms were completely torn out, all electric/plumbing/heating in the building is entirely new, all flooring was taken up and replaced, all doors were replaced, and more! The entire project took over a year to complete!

No, you aren't seeing double, we also have another great apartment EXACTLY like this one listed on VRBO. Due to the demand for our first apartment, we decided to enroll another aprtment in the VRBO program. Both apartments have the same mirror-image layouts, and are decorated with the exact same furnishings in the same colors from IKEA. Everything is exactly the same, they are even on the same floor of our building. The other apartment is VRBO property #694870. If you want to book this apartment, but the calendar is full for the dates that you are looking at, please check VRBO property #694870, it may be available

The location on the edge of downtown in the Elliot Park neighborhood is incredibly convenient, and this building provides a Walk Score of 77, a Transit Score of 100, and a Bike Score of 95. In addition, there is one off-street parking space for every apartment, and access to both I35W and I94 within 1/2 mile.

Minnesota is home to teams in all 4 of the major league sports- MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL- and this apartment is within a mile of the NFL, MLB and NBA, and a short drive or train ride from the NHL stadium. In addition, the world famous Guthrie Theatre, Orchestral Hall, and the Minneapolis Convention Center are all within one mile. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and The Children's Theatre are both a little more than a mile away.

Three well-known, highly regarded hospitals are all within one mile. Hennepin County Medial Center is .5 miles, Abbott Northwestern Hospital is about .8 miles, and Children's Hospital is about .7 miles.

The restaurants, shopping, and nightlife of downtown Minneapolis are a short walk, ride, or drive away. All of the fun of Uptown and the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes is only about 2.5 miles.

You will also be very close to many institutes of higher education including the U of M, North Central University, Augsburg, St. Thomas, St. Catherine, Hamline, Minneapolis Academy of Art and Design, Minneapolis Community College, Minneapolis Technical College, and more. All of these are either a short ride, drive, bus or train ride away (some are even a short walk!).

Each apartment has:

• +/- 600 square feet

• Granite countertops

• Glass tile backsplashes

• Stainless steel and black appliances

• Kitchen slate floor

• New hardwood floors throughout

• Completely new bathrooms with ceramic tile

• Tons of storage- 3 closets within each apartment

• Security system with front door intercom

• Air conditioning

• Bedroom ceiling fan

The rent includes:

- Off-street parking spot in lighted parking lot

- Wi-Fi

- Cable television

- Kitchen fully stocked with plates/glasses/flatware/cookware/utensils/etc.

The building has an on-site laundry room, is 1/2 block off of a Minneapolis Designated Bike Route, is 1/2 block from 2 bus routes (a couple more are just a few blocks away), is about 1/2 mile from Light Rail routes, and has off-street parking with a lighted parking lot.

Walking distances to a few landmarks:

• 1-1/2 minutes to North Central University

• 5-1/2 minutes to HCMC

• 8 minutes to the Convention Center (this is part of the Mpls Skyway system)

• 9 minutes to the Metrodome/Light Rail

• 12 minutes to Orchestra Hall

This location is perfect for anyone who is working downtown, at HCMC, at Abbott Northwestern, or is visiting/studying/working at North Central University, the U of M, Augsburg, or MCAD. In addition to those great places, Eat Street, Uptown, and The Lakes, are just a short ride away.

You can also take the Light Rail Train (1/2 mile away) to/from the airport, downtown St. Paul, and the Mall of America. In short, there is not much in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area that is too far away from here!

Thank you for looking!

About Channing

I was born and grew up in Minneapolis, went to the U of M, and am now raising my kids in the area. There is not much in Minneapolis that I haven't heard about, seen, or done.

I have traveled extensively around the US, and the world, and I still keep coming back. I love it here!

Channing purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Channing chose Central Minneapolis

My family has renovated many properties over the years, and when I saw this one I knew that it was a great opportunity. It took a lot of time and money, but we are really happy with the way that everything came out.

We love Minneapolis and we love this place!!

This was our second stay! It is super-close to where our son lives! Better than pictured! Spacious, clean, secure, comfortable, and with a well-equipped kitchen (no dishwasher which was no problem for us). Private parking (a rare commodity). We are walkers and find the location to be convenient to everywhere that we want to walk to in the city, including Target Field, and then there is light rail to head out to the University, Surly Brewery, St. Paul, Mall of America, and the airport (and Target Field if you choose not to walk). This apartment is in a city neighborhood. I suppose that some would consider it be a bit rough, but there is a sense of community here. We felt perfectly safe walking around. We'll be back!

Comfy and close to downtown

  • 4 of 5

Channing met us to give us the walkthrough of this apartment which was about 1/2 mile from downtown Minneapolis. The apartment was small but comfy and very clean. The king size bed was nice and the pull out sofa bed was easy to use as well. Had no problems sleeping or catching enough hot water for showering plus it was a quiet building. Of course, with it being below freezing every night you wouldn't anticipate many people outdoors. I did not like the immediate neighborhood. Observed about a dozen people that appeared to be transients and a woman attempted to burn me with her cigarette as I was trying to get into the building (she was mad I didn't have bus fare for her.) There's a "market" that's two building east of the apartment which had some real shady characters at night. I recommend avoiding that place at all costs. This apartment is across the street from the Housing Authority which is generally consistent with issues.

The laundry room is in the lower level and takes quarters which bummed me out but we made due. Overall a 4 star. Use the Tram. The US Bank stadium stop is about a 13 minute walk from the apartment.

Clean and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Really nice apartment. We met the owner in the parking lot and were shown the property and where everything was. Very clean and well furnished. We had everything we needed. The rooms are actually a bit bigger than the photos make them look. It was a great location for our needs...we were attending a convention and it was just a quick walk to the convention center, and an even quicker drive when we picked up our daughters late one night. There isn't much in the immediate neighborhood, but it's just a quick drive downtown, or a reasonable walk. The sofa bed was a bit small for two adult sized teens, but they did fine. We would consider staying here again if we come back next year!

This is a great location that is very convenient to all that downtown Minneapolis, and nearby St. Paul have to offer! This area has teams in all 4 of the major sports (NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA), is second to NYC for theatres per capita, has many museums, outdoor activities aplenty, is very big on the craft beer brewery scene, has the world famous Mall of America, and so much more!
