The station is located at the crossing of Varshavskoye Highway with Akademika Yangelya Street (west) and Rossoshanskaya Street (east).[1] It takes the name from Akademika Yangelya Street, which, in turn, was named after Mikhail Yangel, a leading missile designer. One of the proposed names for the station was also Rossoshanskaya, from another street at the crossing.[2]

Ulitsa Akademika Yangelya was opened on 31 August 2000 and remained a terminal station until December 2001. The project was designed by architects Vladimir Filippov and Svetlana Belyakova.[2]
