South Quarter

A neighborhood-based model that is changing the future of a neighborhood one mile south of downtown Minneapolis.

In 1999, amidst a severe housing shortage, Hope envisioned rebuilding all four corners of a long-abandoned intersection in the Phillips neighborhood. There was significant skepticism about changing this high traffic, drug-ridden area of Minneapolis. Undaunted, Hope put together a strategic partnership with non-profit developer Aeon. Our vision of a diverse, multi-cultural community is becoming a reality. Learn more about the project’s history.

  • South Quarter features 225 new units of high-quality rental and homeownership housing, from studios to large three-bedroom units.
  • Ample green space, semi-private courtyards, and children’s play spaces invite residents and neighbors to gather and strengthen community ties.
  • South Quarter designs complement the historic urban architecture of Minneapolis and the surrounding neighborhood.

The intersection marks a gateway not only to downtown Minneapolis, but to a vibrant future for this diverse urban neighborhood.

Developed in partnership with Aeon.
