Boat into concerts? That's the plan for First Avenue's amphitheater proposal
Over a mile of riverfront in north Minneapolis could become home to a First Avenue-operated amphitheater, hundreds of homes and thousands of square feet for business.
The city and several partners have unveiled plans for redeveloping the 48-acre Upper Harbor Terminal site between the Lowry and Camden bridges along the Mississippi River.
The plan for the whole site includes these features:
• 700 to 1,000 homes
