"Cheap Housing for Artists"

Sheridan is a quick trip from downtown, situated between the Mississippi River and the artist occupied Bottineau. This community is also an arts hot spot, famous for its Arts Avenue. While it has for years been a haven for singles, recent trends have shown clusters of families moving to the area, which helps the real estate value climb, but takes away the trendy vibe that has made this neighborhood so special. What has attracted these droves of families are the low housing prices for the apartments and few single family houses. Educational facilities also draw in those with children, but being able to cross the river to access various amenities has made living in Sheridan a must.

Sheridan is prized as an artist community, with 13th Avenue developing with gallery and venue spaces. Those who decide to settle here have access to coffee and studios, the basics for trying to launch an art career. The portion of the neighborhood that touches the river is filled with warehouse spaces, some of which have been converted into studios, Cheap prices in an area of creativity close to downtown has made people compete for real estate, and the number of available spaces still does not meet the current demand. Those that manage to lease or bu ya property, however, are living it up with local culture and nightlife.
Pros
  • Next to the river
  • Affordable housing
  • Close to downtown
  • art galleries
Cons
  • fewer homes than average

"Nice riverside industrial neighborhood"

The northeast Minneapolis neighborhood of Sheridan is known more for its Arts Avenue than as a popular place to move and live. Most of the residents who do live in Sheridan live in apartment rentals that are more common than homes, but there is a recent trend of families moving to the area and more residential housing developments are taking place. Because of the limited homes for sale you might think that the prices are high, but they are actually well below the average Minneapolis listing price. There are a few schools and specialty learning centers within the neighborhood, bringing more families to the area. If you are in Sheridan and need to reach other parts of Minneapolis you can either cross the river and connect with Interstate 94, or maneuver through the neighborhood to make your way to 35W.
The community of Sheridan is home to many culturally rich venues, including several art galleries. As 13th Avenue continues to grow and develop, the Sheridan Neighborhood Organization has worked to bring a new library to the community and refurbish older buildings in the process. There are coffee shops, art studios, and an architectural firm in the neighborhood as well.
The commercial area along the river is probably one of the more significant aspects of the community. River industry was an important part of the history of the settlement of Minneapolis and it continues to be a highlight of the river community today.
