After much fanfare in the summer of 2019, the 360 Communities near million-dollar triple expansion is almost complete. Owned by the City of Rosemount and leased to the nonprofit, the operation started using the building at the end of January.
CNH Architects designed the expansion and upgrades and provided construction administration throughout the process. Enhancements outside feature a Wainscot of brick, dual colored siding, white trim and wood brackets. A wood trellis provides some visual interest.
“We feel this highly upgraded residential-type design blends well with the surrounding residential neighborhood,” said Architect Jessica Johnson Kreps with CNH Architects.
The new interior has an expanded food shelf, larger storage room and additional activity room, break and conference rooms as well as two offices. Existing wall tile was removed and replaced with fiberglass reinforced plastic, the architect explains. There are a few finishing touches outside that will need to wait until spring.
Johnson said CNH has a great, longstanding relationship with the city and especially Parks and Recreation Director Dan Schultz. Terra Construction did the building work.
360 Communities works with children of all ages and families to bring stability and better opportunities for success in school and in life.
