Location and General Characteristics

The Sheridan neighborhood is located in northeast Minneapolis. It extends from Washington Street NE on the east to the Mississippi River on the west, and from Broadway Street NE on the south to 18 th and 17 th avenues NE on the north. It is named for Civil War General Philip Sheridan. The neighborhood elementary and junior high schools and the local park are all named after General Sheridan too. A large portion of the neighborhood was built for industrial use of the Mississippi River, but there is potential for new housing in these industrial areas. The Sheridan neighborhood also has a sizable amount of small apartment buildings.

The Grain Belt brewery built at the end of the 19 th century produced one of the best-selling beers in the upper Midwest, Golden Grain Belt beer. The brewery closed in 1975 and was dormant for 25 years. In 2002, after investing more than a year and millions of dollars refurbishing the historic structure, RSP Architects moved its Minnesota headquarters there.
