South Uptown Neighborhood
South Uptown is a residential neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2018, the neighborhood voted to change its name to South Uptown from its former name CARAG (Calhoun Area Residents’ Action Group). Other potential names for the neighborhood included “Bryant Park” and “Bryant Square”. The Minneapolis City Council approved the name change in November 2018.
South Uptown is part of the Calhoun Isles community of the city, in the southeastern part of that community. It is located directly south of Lowry Hill East and directly east of East Calhoun. Its boundaries are Lake Street to the north, Lyndale Avenue to the east, 36th Street to the south, and Hennepin Avenue to the west. South Uptown, Lowry Hill East, East Calhoun and East Isles form the business district of Uptown.
The South Uptown neighborhood is bounded by W. Lake Street to the north, W. 36th Street on the south, Hennepin Avenue to the west, and Lyndale Avenue on the east. The neighborhood is located within the Uptown area of southwest Minneapolis.
South Uptown has a population of more than 6,000 residents of which more than 70% are renters. The neighborhood includes a wide range of apartments, condos, and single family homes, as well as a mix of local businesses in the Uptown, Lyn-Lake, and 36th & Bryant commercial areas. South Uptown neighbors love our walkable, tree-lined streets with easy access to Bryant Square Park, the lakes, Midtown Greenway, and downtown Minneapolis.
