Southeast Como PDF Print E-mail

Como is a place of cozy homes, tree-canopied streets and delightful gardens, where people come and decide to stay for generations.

Como is conveniently located: halfway between the University of Minnesota’s St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses and halfway between the two downtowns, with excellent bus connections to both.

Como has a strong environmental ethic and has participated in events such as tree planting, opening new community gardens, organic lawn care, building rain barrels, and a Solar Pilot Project. Most recently Como has been awarded a $120,000 grant to implement a Green Village concept that will focus on green transportation, renewable energy, and stormwater management.

“In the summer, you can see the stars and hear crickets at night! We spend lots of time outside, exploring the bluffs with our 2 young children and dog. There is a wonderful cross-section of young and old; families and singles and the area is racially vibrant.  We LOVE our neighborhood.”
