Comcast is beginning a full-scale restoration of a building located in North Minneapolis at 801 Plymouth Ave. No., which will become a regional location for Comcast University's Technical Training Center. With this new facility, Comcast will help bring continued transformation to the North Minneapolis community. More than 800 current and new Comcast employees will visit the center for training in 2008, enrolling in more than 60,000 hours of training.

The building was originally home to Time Warner Cable's Minnesota headquarters; most Time Warner staff were moved to a new location in Minnetonka in 2005. Now Comcast will make significant improvements to the 801 Plymouth Avenue North facility, which will become the company's Twin Cities marquee, high-tech training center, complete with a "broadband house" - a simulated home where trainees will learn and practice installation and service skills.

Minneapolis Mayor R. T. Rybak, local city officials and representatives from neighborhood institutions will give a brief presentation on Tuesday, December 18 - 8:30 a.m. at 801 Plymouth Ave. in North Minneapolis.

Dignitaries in attendance will unveil a new building identification banner. Tours of the building will also be conducted.
