In picture 4 you can see 3 gas meters so this is one unit of potentially 3 on this property. Additionally, it has a $650 HOA monthly fee.

Since we have a topic, I have an idea:

The whole Phillips community (which was always just called Phillips, but since 2002 has been segmented into west, midtown, east and Ventura Village*) should be re-branded as "Midtown". We already seem to have applied that name to the entire stretch of Lake Street from just east of 35W to Hiawatha, and Midtown Global Market is a pretty established landmark at the center of that stretch. This is a perfect example of where the city should lean in to the neighborhood names people are already using, rather than futile attempts to create "east town" out of thin air. I understand the Phillips name has been around forever but I've never really heard anyone say "Phillips", though admittedly I don't know anyone that actually lives in that part of town. This generally follows my argument that Minneapolis has far too many neighborhoods and we should instead use the larger "community" designations.

I lived in Phillips in the 90s when I was young and I never really got the Midtown thing. I always thought it was invented to side-step the crime stigma in the area.

I guess with the Midtown Greenway, the Midtown Market and the Midtown light rail station, important landmarks have taken the name. It's been a long time since I've had anything to do with the area, so I wouldn't be surprised if new residents use the Midtown moniker so it might worthwhile to change it.

Not sure if this was mentioned in a different thread, but this project proposed for the vacant lot at 2313 13th Ave S looks like a great addition to this area; will definitely want to check out the compressed earth block construction, as well as the finished space!
