The long anticipated 610 connection was completed last fall. It connects Interstate 94 to Interstate 35W via Hwy 610/10. This connector provides greater access and convenience across the north metro. It has resulted in a great opportunity for commercial real estate development. At almost every exit there are new commercial developments. Many warehouses, charter schools, shopping developments, distribution centers, and Target North Campus have been built along this Highway. There is still a lot of undeveloped land available along 610 in both Maple Grove and Brooklyn Park. It may even be part of the site that Maple Grove submitted for Amazon’s second corporate headquarters. With access points at HWY 252, HWY 169, HWY 10, and I-94 it is a great place for greater access to the region. It will also be connected at West Broadway and 610 to downtown with the Blue Line extension.
