"Affordable Living in the Shadow of Industry"

Marshall Terrace is located in northern Minneapolis where industry is king. Dozens of railroad tracks pass through the neighborhood and only about a quarter of the land area has been set aside for residential spaces. This sort of landscaping has made homes in the area affordable, with few being listed for more than $135,000 and rent prices rarely exceeding $650 per month. Properties that were built during the 1940's and 1950's, but a few small apartment buildings are also located here. Homes closer to the river have the advantage of being on tree-lined streets, which helps to distract from the cold industrial backdrop on the eastern edge of the neighborhood.

Residents in Marshall Terrace do have access to some public green space at Marshall Terrace Park where fields, basketball courts and a swimming pool offer many forms of physical activity. Anyone can take a bike ride to the more trendy parts of Minneapolis with Bottineau and Beltrami just downriver. The trail along the river offers a very visually pleasing ride to downtown where residents can access additional dining spots and nightlife. Marshall Terrace is an affordable, safe place to live close to downtown, but one has to get used to the noise of the nearby trains.
