Minneapolis Condos On The Light Rail Line

Minneapolis Condos On Minneaplois Light RailIf you’ve longed to own a beautiful Minneapolis condo in the heart of the downtown, there’s no better place to realize your dream than along a light rail line. There are now more than 35 condo developments on light rail corridors in the metro area, offering residents an attractive array of work, shopping and cultural and recreational options that don’t require car ownership.

Minneapolis Light Rail

The 12-mile Metro Blue Line offers fast, quiet light rail service to 19 stations between downtown Minneapolis, the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, and Mall of America, and it shares downtown Minneapolis stations with the new 11-mile Green Line, opened in June 2014, which runs from Target Field to downtown St. Paul and the University of Minnesota.

But you wouldn’t be confined to destinations within the light rail corridors. Metro Transit has timed its bus routes to coincide with light rail station times, further expanding your range of mass transit movement. There are also free bicycle racks on all Metro trains and buses, so you can pedal part of the way and ride the rest.
