Uptown Minneapolis Hennepin

National Register of Historic Places Information



In 1975 Calhoun Elementary was demolished due to low enrollment, opening up 3.5 acres of prime real estate on Hennepin and Lake Street. The city voted 12-1 to declare the neighborhood 'blighted' in order to receive federal grants and the right to invoke imminent domain in order to support a plan to build a 65,000- 70,000 square foot Shopping Center. Many residents didn’'t believe the neighborhood was blighted and further opposed the project for fear that the proposed shopping mall would destroy the unique character of the area and turn it into another cookie cutter suburban mall.

Despite the opposition, Calhoun Square was built, and opened on February 15, 1984. To residents’ delight Calhoun Square increased traffic forcing the city to designate portions of Lagoon and Lake as one-way, architecturally integrated old and new, and has since become a neighborhood landmark and an anchor to the Hennepin-Lake area.
