Waite Park Minneapolis Real Estate
The neighborhood of Waite Park is located in northeast Minneapolis. It is bordered by Stinson Boulevard, Central Avenue Northeast, Saint Anthony Parkway and 37th Avenue Northeast. Edward Foote Waite, a former judge of the Hennepin County District Court, is the inspiration for the neighborhood's name. Most of the land that Waite Park sits on was incorporated by the city in 1887, but the Shoreham Yards were built by then, so it too was included in the "land" that is Waite Park.
The neighborhood has very active residents who take pride in their community and strive to make it stand out in the Minneapolis landscape. There are many fantastic parks and open space in this area for residents to enjoy. The quaint neighborhood is charming and feels cozy, but is still within minutes of downtown Minneapolis.
There are a variety of homes in the neighborhood, like the Craftsman homes built in the early 20th century to the Bungalows that came to life in the 1920s to the Ranch-style homes of the 1950s. There are some newer, more modern homes that have been constructed since 2000, as well as a newer apartment complex that sits on Central Avenue.
