Lowry Hill East is an eclectic neighborhood located in the Calhoun-Isles area of Minneapolis. Because of its roughly triangular shape, Lowry Hill East is sometimes called “the Wedge.” Active commercial corridors form the geographic boundaries of the neighborhood with Hennepin and Lyndale Avenues and Lake Street. Two key shopping and entertainment activity centers overlap the southern corners of the neighborhood: Uptown and Lyn-Lake. Neighborhood residents and visitors enjoy such amenities as Mueller Park and the Midtown Greenway. Lowry Hill East is also home to Jefferson Community School.
A variety of housing options can be found in Lowry Hill East, ranging from 19th century Victorian homes and 1920s bungalows to mid-century apartment buildings and, more recently, new high-end condominium and apartment developments. Many are drawn to the diverse mix of housing offered, resulting in a densely populated neighborhood.
The Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Association (LHENA) was founded in the early 1970s. Since then, it has remained a highly active organization whose mission is to represent the interests and values of Lowry Hill East residents, property and business owners to the larger community and government.
The LHENA Board of Directors meets on a monthly basis. See our calendar page for more information. LHENA also has a variety of committees, such as Zoning & Planning, Neighborhood Revitalization Program, The Wedge Newspaper, and Fundraising. Volunteer opportunities abound!
