The Minnesota Twins are negotiating a deal with Hennepin County to get a stake in a new light-rail transit hub near Target Field that connects the Hiawatha, Northstar and future Central Corridor lines, the Pioneer Press reports. The $79 million project also includes an entertainment plaza on the north side of the ballpark.
The partnership could give the Twins naming rights, revenue from a new 300-space parking ramp and the 30,000 square-foot mixed-use plaza.
Hennepin County received one other bid for the project from United Properties, also owned by the Pohlad Family.
In early September, the tracks of the Hiawatha and the Central Corridor lines were connected in downtown Minneapolis between the Metrodome and Cedar-Riverside Stations.
