MINNEAPOLIS — Starting in November, the corner of Plymouth Avenue and Lyndale Avenue will transform from a warehouse to a V3 Community Center.

“We’re going to have an instructional pool, a running track, and a community meeting space and a retail space,” said V3 Sports Founder Erika Binger.

V3 is a nonprofit organization that works to solve the lack of swimming access among minority communities and provides equity in wellness opportunities.
