The station was opened to the general public on 27 April 2010 with a limited service running between Dalston Junction and New Cross or New Cross Gate. On 23 May 2010 services were extended from New Cross Gate to West Croydon or Crystal Palace, whilst through trains to Clapham Junction began operating at the December 2012 timetable change.
The station was designed by Acanthus LW Architects. The design features towers that serve to strengthen the station's urban presence and recall the language of London's stations of the 1930s designed by Charles Holden. The building is clad externally in precast concrete with screens of cast glass planks. Internally, the building features orange mosaic tiling and a large mural to Edmond Halley, who was born in the area.
A station of the same name on the North London Line previously occupied a site immediately to the south of the modern station from 1865 to 1940. It was served by local services from Broad Street to Poplar on the City Extension of the North London Railway.
