Station overviewEdit

 
Station exterior
 
Station lobby at night

The two-level, underground station with an island platform. It has a naturally-lit hall and sunken garden.[4] The naturally-lit hall has two light towers and a light hallway. The sunken garden connects to the hall and has a ring-shaped corridor, pond, cascade and a circular plaza.[5] The station also has an underground parking lot.

An earlier draft for the station's design did not include the waterfall and sunken, ring-shaped corridor design,[6] though it still maintained the sunken plaza within the station lobby.[7]

ConstructionEdit

The station is 226 m (741 ft) long and 22 m (72 ft) wide. Excavation depth is at 19 m (62 ft). It has six entrances, three elevators for the disabled and two vent shafts.[2] One of the entrances is integrated into a joint development building. The 34-story building is incorporated into exit D and was completed in December 2010.[8] Due to station construction, old banyan trees originally planted on the sidewalk along Xinyi Road were replanted elsewhere within the park.[9]

DesignEdit

The design theme for the station is "Forest Revolution: the City and Park Conversing".[10]
