V3 breaks ground on new teaching pool in Minneapolis
V3 has broken ground on the first phase of its swimming and fitness center in North Minneapolis, MN. The nonprofit organization offers affordable community swimming lessons to reduce drowning disparities among people of color.
The facility will be built in stages. The first phase, which broke ground in November, includes a community center with a 25-yard teaching pool. The second phase will include installing an Olympic-sized 50-meter competition pool used at the 2021 U.S. Swimming Olympic Trials in Omaha, NE, a locker room, running track, parking garage, and potential rooftop deck recreation space.
The facility will be used by community members and will be available for regional swimming competitions.
IMEG is providing structural engineering for the project.
