If one considers that anything inside the 494/694 ring to be “city”, and has it’s southeastern corner inside the city and the rest outside. Both highways 694 and 494 merge inside this city and dump onto Highway 94 leading away from the cities towards St. Cloud and beyond.

With that has come an enormous retail mecca right at the intersection of highways 94, 494, and 694. Following the north side of the highway this area contains just about any type of retail you can imagine, plus an abundance of restaurants and other entertainment as well as a large transit center for people who may prefer to park their and ride public transportation downtown to work etc.
