The Alley Project



The Mpls Downtown Improvement District is championing the development of a new gathering place in the heart of downtown in collaboration with neighborhood partners.


The Alley Project, located at the 900 Hennepin block, is transforming an underutilized public space into a hub of cultural activity where participants shape the place and what happens in it.

This alley, previously used mainly for deliveries, is becoming a place where

pre-event gatherings, classes and activities can take place.


An immersive mural evoking the changing course of the Mississippi River over time adds to the vibrancy of the space.
