The station consists of the elevated LRT station was opened first on 1 September 1998, together with a ground level KTM Komuter station which was constructed later as part of the KL Eco City development and physically integrated with the LRT station. The KTM Komuter station began operations on 28 October 2018.
The station is located between Jalan Bangsar and the KL Eco City development to the south of the central business district of Kuala Lumpur. The station is named after the former Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum, a village which was located between Jalan Bangsar and the Klang River, which has now become the KL Eco City development.
Besides KL Eco City, another major landmark near the Abdullah Hukum Station is the Tenaga Nasional Berhad headquarters which is located across Jalan Bangsar from the station.
The LRT station is an elevated station that was built as part of the Kelana Jaya Line which was then known as Putra LRT. It was one of the 10 stations which was opened on 1 September 1998 when Phase One between Kelana Jaya station and Pasar Seni station (excluding the KL Sentral station opened later), began operations. The station is of the standard Kelana Jaya Line elevated station design, with the two elevated floors - a concourse level and two side platforms above the concourse level - above the ground floor which is used as a kiss and ride and taxi drop-off area.
KTM Komuter station
As part of the KL Eco City development plan, a new KTM Komuter station was to be built between KL Sentral and Angkasapuri, and to be integrated with the KJ Line station. Construction of the new station began in 2014, and was initially slated to be named Eco City station.
The station was opened on 28 October 2018, after much delays, however the name Eco City was dropped; the existing station name Abdullah Hukum was used for both lines.
The Skypark Link passes through this station, but does not stop here.
Connectivity to Mid Valley City and the Seremban Line
Despite its relatively close proximity to the Mid Valley City mixed development just 250 metres east, no proper connection is provided between Abdullah Hukum station and Mid Valley City. The current route requires patrons to walk northwards to a footbridge crossing the KTM tracks, then via the KL Eco City complex, before crossing the Klang River via a road bridge. The station is currently the closest rapid transit station to Mid Valley City, but a KTM Komuter station is also located in Mid Valley City, served by the Seremban Line.
Connection to the Mid Valley KTM station will be possible once the pedestrian bridge linking the KL Eco City project and Mid Valley City is complete, scheduled to be in around April 2019.
The station's layout is somewhat consistent with other elevated Kelana Jaya Line stations, and is alike the Bangsar station. The station has three levels: The access points at street level, and the ticket area and adjoining platforms on two elevated levels. All levels are linked via stairways, escalators and elevators designated for disabled passengers.
Each of the station's two side platforms is used by trains travelling at either direction of the line, and is entirely sheltered by roofs.
