The station is located at the crossing of Varshavskoye Highway with Akademika Yangelya Street (west) and Rossoshanskaya Street (east). 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.
