The Warehouse District/Hennepin Avenue station is a light rail station on the Hiawatha Line in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This station is temporarily and currently the northern terminus of the line.

This station is located on 5th Street North, between 1st Avenue North and Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. It is the last stop northbound on the Hiawatha Line. This is a center-platform station with one traffic lane to the south of the platform. Service began at this station when the Hiawatha Line opened on June 26, 2004. It was at the Warehouse District/Hennepin Avenue station that the opening ceremony was held. The first train departed at 11:00 a.m. on that day.

To reflect its neighborhood, the station incorporates some brickwork into the design. A number of pictures are displayed at the site depicting some of the labor disputes that occurred in the city in the first half of the 20th century.

A new commuter rail line, the Northstar Corridor, will be built in the next several years, at that time or soon after, Hiawatha will be extended about four blocks farther along 5th Street to create the Minneapolis Multi-Modal station, which will connect with the Northstar Corridor and will be adjacent to the new Target Field.
