The Blake Road Station project is the redevelopment of 6.4 acres of land located at the intersection of Excelsior Boulevard and Blake Road South in Hopkins, MN. Trilogy Real Estate Group is working with the City of Hopkins to develop the site in a three phase, multi-modal transit-oriented development adjacent to the Blake Road Southwest LRT Station.
Each phase will build upon the improvements of the previous phase and will ultimately result in an increasingly connected, pedestrian friendly, and transit-focused community. The project will add to the mix of housing choices for area residents, providing a new opportunity to live immediately adjacent to the light rail transit station. Area businesses will be supported by more than 800 new neighbors who will eventually call this location their home.

Amenity courtyards and balconies extend living spaces to the outdoors while improved sidewalks and connections encourage active lifestyles for residents. With close proximity to the Cedar Lake Trail, each building will supply ample storage to encourage bicycle use for recreation as well as daily commuting.
The new, state-of-the-art dwelling units will support the residents’ sustainable living experience by providing urban housing that incorporates energy-efficient appliances, low-flow water fixtures, low-VOC paints, building-wide recycling practices while encouraging car-free living. The buildings will be designed to incorporate assemblies that ensure high-quality acoustical performance between units (wall and floor assemblies).
