Crews have yet to put down a track for the $1.858 billion Southwest Light Rail Transit line, but that hasn’t stopped developers from moving ahead with a host of residential and commercial projects near future station areas.

Metropolitan Council officials said in a report released Wednesday that developers have proposed, completed or started more than $1 billion worth of projects along the future 14.5-mile route.
