The Jordan neighborhood is bordered by businesses ranging from coffee shops and a hardware store to two major grocery stores leaving the interior of the neighborhood mostly residential and very peaceful. There are many housing styles to choose from in Jordan: painted lady Victorians and Arts and Crafts bungalows to newer construction with the latest eco-friendly features. Jordan’s location is superb: just minutes from the amenities and employment of downtown Minneapolis and adjacent to the exceptional Theodore Wirth Park and Golf Course. Jordan supports the arts and is home to Juxtaposition Arts a creator of city wide murals, mosaics and street art.

The area which is now called the Jordan Neighborhood was established by the merchants, skilled trades-people and educators who left behind beautiful, well built homes on generous sized lots—many of which were built in the early-twentieth century. In recent times, the Jordan Area Community Council originally was much larger than the neighborhood boundaries today and was formed to lobby for the North Regional Library to be built in the community on Lowry Ave

Housing Styles and Types

The architecture in Jordan ranges from turn of the century Victorians and Foursquare styles to the Arts & Crafts bungalows of the Twenties, the deco Tudors of the 30’s and 40’s, the sturdy brick ramblers of the 50’s to the more contemporary two story homes built in the 90s to the present.

The average home is approximately 1600 square feet and has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms with a detached garage.

“I love being able to walk down the street a block and find a bakery, four restaurants, a co-op for fresh food, and great bus service to get me where I am going.  My family was able to downsize to one car because of our great transportation access.”
