Since you'll be working at the intersection of I-494 and MN Highway 100 (also known as Normandale Boulevard south of Interstate 494 as hwy 100 looses its highway designation as it travels south into West Bloomington, I would try to stay in or very close to West Bloomington as the I-494 is congested and slow much of the day between East Bloomington and West Bloomington.

There are a number of apartments in West Bloomington near Normandale Blvd between I-494 to the north and stretching south to Old Shakopee Road ( Hennepin County Road 1). Still in West Bloomington, there are a number of apartments along France Avenue (Hennepin County Road 17) from I-494 all the way down to Old Shakopee Road which will fit your needs and budget. There are also a number of apartments in your range along Old Shakopee Road as well. Don't forget 98th street as well.Try and stay close to the zip codes: 55437 ; 55438 ; 55439 ; 55431

Surprisingly, Edina also has nice, affordable apartments in the 55424 and 55435 zip codes. many are north of the Southdale Shopping Center and W. 66th Street but south of the Crosstown Freeway (MN Highway 62) between France Avenue and Xerxes Ave/ York Avenue. North of the HWY 62 Crosstown Freeway there are very nice economical apartments along Valley View Road between France Avenue and MN Hwy 100 (Normandale Blvd) this would be in the 3900-5200 blocks of Valley View Road in Edina.

Moving a little further north along Highway 100 into St. Louis Park zip codes 55416 and 55426 you will find several options fitting your budget as will also be the case just to the west in Hopkins

Eden Prairie has a number of nice apartments in the 55344 zip code however a lot of them , not all, will rent above your price range.

If you're willing to drive a little further out you could check out some neighborhoods in South Minneapolis , Richfield , Burnsville or Shakopee on the For Rent websites or Apartments websites or Renters Warehouse websites too.

Looked at any of the nationwide rental sites? I used one to check prices in Bellngham WA. Forrent.com has listings.
