Location updates

NorthPoint clinic services are still on campus at 1313 Penn Ave N. Please note: the parking lot outside 1313 Penn Ave will be closed starting starting in mid-September for the next few months due to construction:

  • Free handicap parking will be available in the north end of the lot across Penn Ave (enter from 14th Ave).
  • Remaining visitors may use the free parking ramp at 1256 Penn Ave N. The entrance is at Plymouth Ave and Oliver Ave N. Exit the ramp the first floor, cross Plymouth Ave, and then cross Penn Ave to access the current clinic location at 1313 Penn Ave N.
  • Please allow extra time before your appointments to adjust to these changes!

The 1315 Penn Ave N building has been retired to make room for the north expansion, and all the services have been relocated to 2 locations:

  • Food Shelf location: 1835 Penn Ave N (at Golden Valley Rd)
    This new location is just blocks from the NorthPoint campus on the corner of Penn and Golden Valley Road. There is street parking and limited parking spots behind the building. This is a temporary location for the Food Shelf until the new NorthPoint space is completed.
    Call 612-767-9500 for more information.
  • Human Services location: 1256 Penn Ave N, Suite 5300
    This location is on the corner of Penn Ave N and Plymouth Ave. Free parking is available. The parking entrance is on Plymouth Ave and Oliver Ave N. This is a temporary location for Human Services until the new NorthPoint space is completed.
    Call 612-767-9500 for more information.


Campus expansion information

To meet the growing needs of the community, NorthPoint has embarked on an extensive campus expansion project surpassing $90 million, including an $87.15 million investment from Hennepin County. The expansion will double the square footage of the existing 67,000-sq. ft. facility to 135,000 sq. ft. The project consists of three phases:

  • Phase 1 has been completed with the construction of the parking ramp and 5th floor administration offices at 1256 Penn Ave N.
  • Phase 2 has been completed with the relocation of Estes Funeral Chapel allowing us to build on their old location on the northwest corner of Penn Ave N and Plymouth Ave.
  • Phase 3 will be the expansion of our campus on the 1300 block of Penn Ave N.  Once completed the expansion of the NorthPoint's campus will incorporate additional space that integrates clinic and human services.

Community impact

  • Economic impact: As the second largest employer in North Minneapolis, employing over 400 people with over 70 percent of employees having connections in the community, our campus expansion will further NorthPoint's economic impact in the community.
  • Conservation impact: With the support of the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, the expanded facilities will include infiltration gardens, which will remove 99.1% of the total suspended solids from their drainage areas, as well as 70.8% total phosphorous annually. Visit the MWMO website for more information.
