YMCA Explores Concept and Evaluates New Site in Downtown Minneapolis

 

Minneapolis, MN – The YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities, a leading nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, is exploring a new potential downtown site located at South Sixth Street and Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis, MN.

The YMCA's site evaluation will extend until early June 2016.

"Based on the market studies, focus groups and discussions we have been conducting, the YMCA continues to explore a concept for a new Y location that would allow us to better serve residents and the community; provide convening space for community partners, nonprofits and social good entrepreneurs; and collaborative work space for the Y team members to continue to develop innovative and impactful programs and services," said Glen Gunderson, president and CEO of the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities. "We are intrigued by this potential downtown location and we now have the opportunity to perform a thorough evaluation of the site."
