Lowry Hill East Real Estate
As you've probably guessed from the name, Lowry Hill East is the neighborhood found to the east side of Lowry Hill in Minneapolis. Tomas Lowry, one of the first residents of the area, originally developed this neighborhood. It began with his version of public transportation, a horse-drawn streetcar system. This neighborhood is sometimes known as "the Wedge" because of it's triangular shape.
Lowry Hill East has a diverse range of homes, from Victorian-era styles to modest, single-family homes. Some of the more elegant properties of yesteryear have been converted in multiple-unit residences. In recent years, the area has seen larger modern condos and apartment complexes added to the neighborhood.
