Marquette Block

Hennepin Avenue East between University Avenue Southeast and Second Street Southeast

This development contains five historic buildings fronting Hennepin Avenue, which have been renovated for street-level commercial space with apartments above, plus a public parking lot and 20 luxury townhomes.
