The Loring Park neighborhood is bordered by I-94 to the south, Hennepin/Lyndale Avenues to the west, Hawthorne Avenue to the North and 12th Street marks the boundary between it and the core downtown.

The neighborhood is one that can truly be called diverse and unique in many ways. It is primarily an adult community comprised of young professionals, retired suburban homeowners seeking the benefits of urban living and a growing population of eastern European immigrants.

Total population according to the 2000 census is 7,501, an increase of 14% since 1990. The median age is 36.3, mostly white and only 176 households with individuals under the age of 18. We love to live together given the fact that there are virtually no single-family dwellings in the neighborhood!

Loring Park is unique in its diversity and acceptance of all lifestyles. Those who might feel unwelcome in many neighborhoods, find Loring Park a safe place to live and work. Adding to the security of living in the neighborhood is the fact that the crime rate is among the lowest of all Minneapolis neighborhoods.

Currently CLPC is working with developers to create more - and more affordable housing, to attract even more residents to the community.
