A renaissance is underway at 50th and France, the shopping district nestled in the affluent neighborhoods of Edina and southwest Minneapolis.
At a time when other urban hubs are struggling, new shops, restaurants, and boutique fitness studios are opening in "the district."
Alter'd State, featuring clothing aimed at teens and young women, is taking the prime Sur La Table corner space. Nearby, the flagship Evereve shop just reopened in an expanded space. Foodies can find "progressive" Indian food, sushi, clean juice and steak frites. A New Orleans supper club and plant-based burgers are on the way.
Meanwhile, a proposal for high-end condos is before the city of Minneapolis while a two-bedroom unit is renting for $4,995 at the new Nolan Mains residences where residents can walk outside to find concerts or story time on the city of Edina-owned plaza built as part of the development.
Forward-thinking public-private partnership combined with location, location, location propelled the latest wave of openings. Steele Smiley, Crisp & Green's founder, calls 50th and France "the most significant intersection in all of Minnesota."
