Kenwood and Lowry Hill

The upscale Minneapolis neighborhood of Kenwood is located on the city's west side. This area attracts discriminating home buyers with its polished landscapes and historic architectural charms, all of which are reflected in home values that are nearly three times the Minneapolis average. Beautiful views of the Minneapolis downtown skyline and easy access to the many surrounding city lakes make Kenwood one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city. Leafy Lowry Hill is home to the acclaimed Walker Art Center, with contemporary galleries, a cinema and a theater, and the adjacent Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, known for monumental works like the iconic “Spoonbridge and Cherry” by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. Green spaces include Loring Park and Lowry Park.

The Kenwood neighborhood is within the Calhoun-Isles community in Minneapolis. Its boundaries are Cedar Lake Parkway to the west, Kenwood Parkway to the north, West Lake of the Isles Parkway to the east, and Kenilworth Place to the south.

The many cultural events, such as the Uptown Art Fair and City of Lakes Urban Cross Country Ski Festival, are annual celebrations just blocks from the shores of Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles. If you enjoy water activities, the Chain of Lakes offers kayaking, fishing, sailing, and fantastic beaches. If you’re a dog owner, there’s a large dog park on the Southside of Lake of the Isles. Extensive trails, and a myriad of dining and shopping options all enhance the incredible lifestyle of living in the Kenwood neighborhood.  

Lowry Hill is a neighborhood within the Calhoun-Isles community in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The neighborhood is named for the terminal moraine on which it sits, a hill named after late nineteenth century real estate mogul and trolley tycoon Thomas Lowry. Its boundaries are Interstate 394 to the north, Interstate 94 to the east, Hennepin Avenue to the southeast, West 22nd Street to the south, Lake of the Isles Parkway to the southwest, and Logan Avenue South and Morgan Avenue South to the west. Lowry Hill is northwest of Lowry Hill East; the two neighborhoods are separated by Hennepin Avenue.

Many houses in Lowry Hill were built in the Victorian style before 1900. However, the Colonial, Mediterranean, English Tudor, Richardsonian Romanesque, Rambler, and Prairie style make appearances as well. A majority of those homes were constructed shortly after the neighborhood's establishment as a preferred residential area for many of the wealthiest of Minneapolis' citizens. In over 100 years, the look of Lowry Hill has remained almost unchanged, however, some of the large homes built by original owners have been converted to condominia.
