Station overview

Royalston Station brings you to the edge of everything downtown has to offer. The station is located within walking distance of the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market, Target Field and Fulton Brewery, as well as the Hennepin Theatre District.

The surrounding area includes various government facilities and educational campuses, including Minneapolis Community and Technical College and Metropolitan State University. The sprawling mixed-income neighborhood of Heritage Park is also nearby.

Future development makes this a prime location for downtown-style residential and commercial developments with an industrial backdrop.
