Time: 6:00-7:30pm

Location: Longfellow Park Recreation Center – 3435 36th Ave S. 

Join us for a presentation and Q & A with Friendship Academy of the Arts and FAA Building Company on their redevelopment proposal for the building located at 3320 East 41st Street.

Friendship Academy of the Arts is pursuing the acquisition and redevelopment of the building for a second school campus, which would serve roughly 350 2nd through 8th grade students.

The proposed redevelopment will include predominantly interior renovations to accommodate office and classroom spaces, gymnasium, and cafeteria spaces. The redevelopment will also include 30 parking stalls, bicycle parking, improved green space, stormwater management, drop off areas to accommodate traffic flow, and landscaping to screen and beautify the space.

Preliminary site plans for the project can be found here.

The full land use application for this project will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

A community vote will be held at the conclusion of the meeting, on whether to issue a letter in support of the schools land use application to the Minneapolis City Planning Commission.

If you have questions about this development or the community meeting, please contact LCC Program Manager Justin Gaarder at: or 612-722-4529 EXT. 13
