About: Committed to building a sustainable and well-balanced downtown Minneapolis, with social equality and environmental health, MINNEAPOLIS 2.0: LOCAL advocates for an alternative supplement to the city’s traditional downtown. Living, Working, Co-generation, Agriculture, and Leisure (LOCAL) proposes a new direction for Downtown East with diverse functionality and a 24-hour community where there is access to shared green space, clean energy, locally grown food, mixed-income housing, and mixed development including office, residential, entertainment, and recreation uses within a street- and pedestrian-focused downtown. M2L’s objective is to complement the city’s business-oriented Downtown West.
