Upper Harbor Terminal

The Upper Harbor Terminal is a 48+ acre site along the Mississippi River. In the coming months, the City, Park Board and Development team are working to create a master plan for redeveloping the Upper Harbor Terminal Site into a place that has a new public park and private development, using a variety of input. The site is now industrial, but the City and Park Board, along with a development team that includes First Avenue Productions, THOR Development and United Properties, is creating a redevelopment plan that includes a new park and private redevelopment.

At JXTA, youth apprentices have been studying this site for almost two years. The Upper Harbor Terminal is important because of its unique location and the opportunities that can grow from it. Currently, North Minneapolis has no major river hotspots where locals can go for events, fun, and connection to the river. This space can foster this and create a hub of economic and cultural growth.

We feel it is important for Northsiders to be a part of the process: to say what we think is important and what we want to see in this new development. We invite you to talk with us at JXTA about your thoughts and vision.

Join us at an upcoming event:  We need your voice to help shape the plan.

Hosted by THOR Development
The general goal of this meeting will be to gather community input on potential housing and small business components of the plan. From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., a panel will discuss challenges, issues and successes in affordable and market-rate housing and small business in North Minneapolis. The panel will be moderated by Shauen Pearce-Lassiter (Greater Minneapolis) and will include Tim Baylor (Pinnacle Management), Angie Skildum (City of Minneapolis), Cora McCorvey (former CEO of MPHA) and Sarah Larson (Landon Group). After a break, the second half of the evening will include a presentation by THOR Development of its development program concept for housing on the UHT site and an opportunity for Q & A and input. Both portions of the evening are open to the public and will be family-friendly. Refreshments will be provided.
