Imagine the Possibilities

Upper Harbor Terminal

Private development & riverfront parkland

The City of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) have completed their request for qualification process and selected a development team to work with them to pursue redevelopment of the City-owned Upper Harbor Terminal (UHT) site in North Minneapolis. The selected team is led by United Properties, Inc. and also includes THOR Development and First Avenue Productions.

Located along the Mississippi River, generally between the Lowry Avenue and Camden bridges, the site is the largest remaining single-owner development opportunity along the River in Minneapolis. The site is just over two miles from downtown Minneapolis and also offers excellent freeway access. The redevelopment goal is to transform this 48+ acre site from its historic use as a barge shipping terminal to a combination of riverfront park amenities and private development.

Master Development Team Selected

In January of 2017, the Minneapolis City Council and Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) selected a development team (United Properties with THOR Development and First Avenue Productions) to enter into a collaborative planning process with the City and MPRB, with community input. This planning process will be guided by an exclusive rights agreement between the three parties.
