Chicago Avenue Corridor Plan



In 1887, Northwestern Hospital for Women and Children moved into an eight-room facility at the intersection of East 27th Street and Chicago Avenue. This began a 120-year history of change and development along the Chicago Avenue corridor, which today is home to a wide variety of housing, institutions, and businesses. Continued investment from public and private sources indicates that more change should be anticipated, raising important questions about land use, economic development, urban design, and transportation..

In 2010-2011 the City of Minneapolis department of Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) engaged area residents, institutions, businesses and other stakeholders in a corridor planning process for Chicago Avenue between I-94 and the Midtown Greenway. The project was staffed by the CPED-Planning Division and guided by a steering committee representative of key stakeholders.

The City Council adopted the Chicago Avenue Corridor Plan and associated zoning changes on January 13, 2012. The Plan provides guidance for future development and land use changes, outlines multimodal transportation initiatives in the area, and includes an action plan for focusing investment on Chicago Avenue.
