Minhang Development Zone Station (simplified Chinese: 闵行开发区站; traditional Chinese: 閔行開發區站; pinyin: Mǐnháng Kāifāqū Zhàn) is a metro station in the city of Shanghai.

This station is the southern terminus of Line 5 in the satellite city Minhang. The zone is about 3.5 km² in size and was opened in 1986. The location is close to the Outer-ringway giving the zone quick access to both airports of the city. The opening of Line 5 has dramatically improved access to downtown Shanghai.

The zone contains factories for companies that produce machinery, electronics, pharmaceuticals, beverages and entertainment products.
