I remember passing this one on the way from Shenzhen to Shanghai. I instantly recognized the roof structure (unlike most other stations on the way). One of the more interesting station designs and a very good attempt at implementing traditional Chinese design motives.

Yes its roof design is consistent with Xiamen local architecture style. I was taking train from Xiamen to Shanghai on Jan 4 and walked around this station before the departure.

The designers of China's high speed rail network said "we're going big or going home!" Some really smart people who got this all together!

in the video it says the main structure is done. I guess they are working on interiors now. It'll open with GZ-Shenzhen-HongKong HSR.

Do you mean that it is to remain closed until Kowloon West Station is also completed?

Passed by there when I was in Beijing. Quite a small station compared to others, but the landscaping and building are impressive.

Kunming to build new railway station in Chenggong

The new station is located at Chenggong New District in Kunming. The project costs 2.052 billion yuan and the construction area totals 332,500 square meters. It will integrate railway, subway, bus and taxi together, and will connect to Shanghai and Chongqing in the north, Guilin and Yuxi in the south. It will be designed to work as a conjunction station for the Pan-Asia Railway.
After the construction, the southern railway station is expected to deliver passengers from Kunming to Guilin, Yuxi, Chongqing and Shanghai, while the present Kunming Railway Station in the downtown area is also used. The combination of new subway station and old railway station will enhance Kunming’s key position as the gateway to South Asia and Southeast Asia.

It will be built at the bottom of Longtan Mountain on the east of Chenggong New District, Kunming. The planned station is about 7 kilometers away from the Dianchi Lake, and around 28 kilometers away from the present Kunming Railway Station. 16 platforms and 30 railroads are designed for the station which is oriented in directions of south and north.
The new station will show unique geographic cultures of the city. Theme of the station is about a dancing peacock spreading its tail and fresh flowers being in full blossom since peacock is native in Yunnan and Kunming boasts its fresh flowers. Design of the station implicates open attitude and hospitality of people in the city.
Waiting halls of the new station will be bigger than the one in service now. It is expected to deliver 128,000 passengers a day and 12,000 ones during rush hours. Seen from the long term, 46,930,000 passengers are predicted to travel via this station annually after 2030.
According to Kunming Railway Bureau, "the new railway station and the old station in the city will be connected after the successful construction of the new one in Chenggong District."
