Located just off Van White Memorial Boulevard, the planned Bassett Creek Valley Station will be surrounded by 75 acres of undeveloped property, making the area prime for urban redevelopment. The area includes the Dunwoody College of Technology, the Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and the Minneapolis neighborhoods of Bryn Mawr, Harrison, Lowry Hill and Kenwood. The station will be conveniently close to the athletic fields and open space of Bryn Mawr Meadows.
The planned Bassett Creek Valley Station, above, will be located beneath the Van White Memorial Boulevard Bridge. Stairs and an elevator will link the station to sidewalks on the bridge.
The rendering above shows how the station will be screened by tree plantings.
The design of the planned station includes a passenger drop-off and bus stop. The station will be linked to the Van White Memorial Boulevard bridge by stairs and an elevator. A new trail bridge will replace the existing pedestrian overpass and link the station area to Bryn Mawr Meadows.
