The entire stretch from the Hollywood Dance Studio to the soon-to-be Anytime Fitness have had major facade upgrades. Prior to the Great Streets program most of this corner was vacant.
Despite damage to a few of these building during the 2011 tornado, including the loss of the historic Broadway Liquor Outlet building across the street, this vital North Minneapolis intersection has seen dilapidated storefronts renewed by committed business owners like Dr. Watson’s Chriopractic, Dr. Otieno Dentistry and the Hollywood School of Dance. No single stretch of West Broadway has seen more positive change, despite a difficult market and a devastating tornado.
