Blake Road Station

Project Background

Blake Road Station is the redevelopment of 7.4 acres of land located in the northwest quadrant of Excelsior Boulevard and Blake Road into a three phase, mixed-use residential and commercial development adjacent to the future Blake Road Metro Green Line Extension Transit Station. 

In August 2021, the City Council approved Trilogy Real Estate Group's overall rezoning and planned unit development requests along with site plan for the first phase of the development (Site A). Construction on the first building began in December 2021. 

Trilogy Real Estate Group received planned unit development (PUD) amendment and site plan review approvals for the second phase (Site B) of the Blake Road Station development in April 2022. The plans for Site B include a 7-story, commercial and residential mixed-use multiple unit apartment building located at the northwest corner of Excelsior Boulevard and Blake Road. The building will include 250 residential units, 10,000 square feet of commercial space and 339 enclosed parking spaces to serve both the commercial and residential uses. Interested parties can review the applicant's plans here.
