Abstract:

Located in downtown Minneapolis, Target Field Station is more than simply a light-rail hub. In addition to facilitating the flow of large crowds to the home of the Minnesota Twins, the station offers an amphitheater, public gathering spaces, and economic development opportunities. Designed with the environment in mind, it also features innovative measures for collecting and reusing storm water runoff and snowmelt.
