It is 221.4 m (726 ft) in length and 21.55 m (70.7 ft) wide.[8] It has three entrances, one accessibility elevator, and three vent shafts.[4] Two of the entrances are located next to a joint development lot. An 8,000 m2 (86,000 sq ft) plot of land beside the station is being set aside for joint development projects.[5] The entrance features a double arch-shaped glass roof.
