Eden Prairie Station Descriptions
The planned reconfiguration of the SouthWest Station bus terminal combines LRT with the existing SouthWest Transit bus service and expands the park-and-ride facility, making this station a key hub for travelers to and from downtown Minneapolis. Shops and restaurants are located around the station. The surrounding area also includes Purgatory Creek Park.
The Town Center area of Eden Prairie includes the Eden Prairie Center mall, located just east of the station area, and multi-family residential housing located to the south and east of the station along Singletree Lane.
The Golden Triangle area is a major regional employment center. Bounded by Hwy. 169 to the east, Hwy. 212 to the west and Interstate 494 to the south, the area has nearly 10-million square feet of industrial and office space. More than 20,000 people travel into and out of the greater Golden Triangle area every day.
The planned City West Station is adjacent to the corporate campus of Optum, a division of UnitedHealth Group. Other commercial and residential developments are also located nearby.
