Main Street, Nicollet Island, Minnesota, United States
Saint Anthony Main is a shopping and office complex located on Main Street in the Nicollet Island/East Bank neighborhood of Southeast Minneapolis in the U.S. state of Minnesota. Commonly the area is associated with Northeast, Minneapolis as it is actually northeast of downtown on the east side of the Mississippi River.
It opened as a festival marketplace in the 1980s. Though initially popular, with many small shops selling tourist items, it had economic troubles after noise restrictions reduced its hours of operation. The area underwent a resurgence during the condominium boom in the early 2000s, and several condo projects started in and around the area; including the adjoining Pillsbury A Mill complex. It is now home to a movie theater, four bars and restaurants, a small cafe, and a Segway tour operator. It sits on the other side of Central Avenue from Riverplace, a housing and office complex. It fronts the river at Saint Anthony Falls, the only waterfall on the Mississippi River, and sits next to the Hennepin Island Hydroelectric Plant, host of the Water Power Park, which opened in Spring 2007.
