University District Alliance

The District Alliance brings the University of Minnesota and four surrounding neighborhoods together to create a new district vision organized around place-making principles. This framework supports a wide variety of uses and reinforces great streets, urban village patterns (T.O.D.) at new LRT stations and sustainable practices. The District Alliance also provides initial recommendations aimed at identifying new investment, strengthening core neighborhoods, enhancing student livability and mobility, providing live/work housing and celebrating the connectivity of the larger public realm.
