Uptown is a renter’s paradise. Scads of groovy new apartment buildings have opened recently, offering a wide range of amenities. Even though with nearly 600 units it falls into the mega category, we like Elan Uptown because of its location directly adjacent to the Midtown Green­way. It also has one of the best amenity packages in the neighborhood, and with LEED Silver Certification, it takes sustainability to a new level. 2837 Dupont Av. S., Mpls.; 1-877-650-3526, elanuptown.com
