Designed by architect Ralph Rapson and originally constructed between 1971-1973, Riverside Plaza consists of an 11-building campus in the heart of the Cedar Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis.
The six high-rise apartment buildings of Cedar Riverside Plaza house approximately 3,500-4,000 residents.
The campus also has a K-8 charter school, grocery store, and a tenant resource center with various formal and informal social services such as a computer lab and job training supporting over 400 individuals per month.
The Riverside Plaza Tenants' Association exists to build a cohesive community, which embraces the diverse cultural and economic realities of the Riverside Plaza residents, and to represent and further the interests of these tenants.
The advocacy team addresses and resolves tenant complaints or concerns such as rent issues, disputes, maintenance, security, health and safety to promote positive relationship building between owners and tenants. We also empower our residents by offering assistance to enroll in free English (ESL) and Citizenship classes.
