This three-level, elevated station features two side platforms, two exits, and platform elevators located on the east and west sides of the concourse level.[2]

The station is located at the intersection of Chenggong Road, Sec. 5 and Kangning Road, Sec. 3. It is 83 meters long and 21.5 meters wide, while the platform is 93.5 meters long.[3]

The area around the station has many high-rise residential buildings and television stations. Because of its proximity to residential buildings along the Brown Line, it is the only station to have 3.6 meter double-curved walls to reduce noise levels.[3] The station is also designed to fit in with the casual environment of local businesses.

Design[edit]

The theme for this station is "Dancing", with decorative art walls in the station.[4]
