Perhaps the most notable feature of Seward is the Milwaukee Avenue Mall Area. This pedestrian-only street contains many historic structures. Just over half of the neighborhood’s 400 acres is designated residential, and twenty percent designated industrial. The eastern area of Seward is lined with parks that border the Mississippi River. The industrial use areas are located along Minnehaha and Snelling avenues and 27th Street East in the southwestern portion of the neighborhood. Seward is connected to downtown, the airport and the Mall of America through the newly opened light-rail line. Many residents of Seward are education or medical professionals, thanks to its proximity to both the University of Minnesota and the Fairview-Riverside Medical Center. The Seward Neighborhood Group, which is involved in community development, environmental programs, and a number of youth-oriented programs as well, is one of the oldest such organizations in Minneapolis.
