Connecting to Eden Prairie through Southwest light rail
Southwest Station will offer bus and light rail connections. The station is located adjacent to the major express bus park-and-ride development, as well as 6,000 square feet of office space and 45,000 square feet of restaurant uses. Major employers Optum, MTS and Wells Fargo have offices here.
The surrounding area includes Purgatory Creek Conservation Area, a 200-acre wetland area with a seven-acre park and 2.5 miles of walking trails.
Future development will maintain and enhance the existing mix of residential and commercial uses within a 10-minute walk of the station. Approximately 600,000 additional square feet of office space is expected to develop on nearby vacant land.
