With the closing of the Upper Harbor Terminal along the Mississippi Riverfront in North Minneapolis at the end of 2014, 48 acres will be available for development.
Join a panel of local experts as we discuss the question:
How do we redevelop in a way that both creates jobs and provides a meaningful place to live, work and interact with our environment? What does that mean in an urban setting?

Joe Mullery, Northside neighborhood resident, Minnesota House of Representatives

Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership
The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership – a unique private-public partnership - is leading the charge in defining riverfront revitalization. MRP launched the Riverfront Vitality Forums to bring diverse groups together to work on issues critical to creating a vibrant riverfront community. MRP’s signature work—the Minneapolis Riverfront Vitality Project—is tracking the results of public and private efforts toward a healthy, livable riverfront lined with greenspace and trails and accessible to everyone.
