Crown Theaters Block E
Now Open. Block E, Minneapolis serves as the strategic connector between the warehouse, financial and entertainment districts of the city. The completion of Block E is one of the final steps in the reconstruction of downtown Minneapolis. No other project has the opportunity to take advantage of the abundance of business, residential and entertainment uses already in operation around this dynamic site.
The project takes advantage of the existing powerful spaces that surround it. It is connected via skyway to the Target Center, home of the Minnesota Timberwolves. A second skyway leads into City Center, one of the premiere mixed-use projects of the financial district.
Block E capitalizes on its proximity to the theatres, sports venues, nightclubs, and the financial and emerging residential districts. The block includes the four-star, 260-room hotel, Le Meridien, developed by Graves Hospitality Corporation. Entertainment is exceptionally well served by the opening of a 15-screen Crown Theatres; GameWorks; The Shout House (Minneapolis' first smoke-free nightclub); Borders Books & Music; Escape Ultra Lounge; and Hard Rock Café. This world-renowned entertainment and dining experience attracts guests from the financial district and from around the five state area.
