Collaborative Design Group was selected to provide Urban and Master Planning Services for the new Northside Partnership. The partnership is joining NorthPoint Health and Wellness Center, the University of Minnesota, the YMCA, and Hennepin County together to provide better social and health services to the North Minneapolis community.
Central to this effort is a comprehensive realignment of service delivery. This concept is expected to have significant impact on Hennepin County’s real estate and facilities strategies. Innovative strategies, such as flexible outreach and incubator-type spaces, are being studied, as well as the county’s ability to leverage its real estate investments to act as a catalyst to private development.
Additionally, CDG is providing design services for the facilities resulting from this planning effort. The project will include several office, clinic, retail, and parking structures with a total construction value of approximately $150 million.
