Demolition - May - June 2019

These buildings will be removed to make space for new construction that will provide us with additional square footage to provide services.

  •     The old Estes Funeral Chapel vacant building on the north-west corner of Penn and Plymouth - completed
  •     NorthPoint Human Services Building at 1315 Penn Ave N

Project Timeline Update

We do not have any solid construction dates to share at this time. Based on recent bidding processes, NorthPoint Leadership has made the decision to modify our campus design. There are a number of experiences that went into this decision:

  • The project is trending higher than expected and we can make changes that will not compromise on the overall vision while staying closer to the project budget.
  • Higher construction costs have become an industry-wide trend.
  • It is important that our design provides the best value for our campus development to meet the needs of our customers and our community.

Entering into a redesign process will result in construction being delayed but not stopped. We did not want to start construction late in the summer or fall leading into the winter, therefore, we have delayed breaking ground. We will have a community celebration event to recognize the demolition of the Human Services building at 1315 Penn which is a part of Phase 3 and the final phase of our capital development project. 

  • Phase 1 was the parking ramp and 5th floor at 1256 Penn Ave N. - completed
  • Phase 2 was the relocation of Estes - completed
  • Phase 3 has begun with the demolition of the old Estes chapel and the Human Services building.

The NorthPoint Community Board in partnership with Hennepin County has adopted a community development and campus expansion project to meet this need and align with the mission, legacy and future of NorthPoint. This plan is a comprehensive community development strategy that leverages NorthPoint’s successful health, economic and social impact. The community development plan not only provides needed program space for patients and clients, but also extends its reach into the community providing major physical and economic development opportunities by working across multiple sectors including public, private, health, housing, food and transportation.
