Station overview

Louisiana Station is home to Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital, a regional medical center. Thousands of people are employed at the hospital and thousands more benefit from care there. The station is located in a center of light industrial and big-box retail uses, such as Japs-Olson, Sam's Club and Highway 7 Corporate Center.

The surrounding area includes single and multi-family residential areas, including Meadowbrook Apartments. You can even access the trails and canoe or fish at nearby Minnehaha Creek. Future development will be driven by the station's proximity to the hospital and medical offices. New moderate-density residential development is also envisioned.
