This is a satellite suburban station, rather than the other major stations already serving Shenyang.

That certainly looks nicer than the old station, which I visited this year for the first time.

A test-run bullet train arrives at Hengshui North Station in Hengshui, north China's Hebei Province, Dec. 27, 2017. The Hengshui North Station is now available for operation, and will be put into use as long as the Shijiazhuang-Jinan high-speed rail comes on stream. (Xinhua/Mu Yu)

Everything in China is so huge! Interior of that last shown station looks like airport terminal and from outside looks like whole new airport.
It is hard to locate it. Is Chongqingxi Railway Station here

Thanks!
Also remember that nearby Shapingba station will also open in 2018 in Chongqing.

Shapingba High Speed Railway Station location on Google.cn maps

It will be curious to know if and when Chongqing West opens, will they finally renovate the South Square area of Chongqing North station? The blue roofed platforms seen in your original Google maps link. It is a painful place to visit at the moment with it's split functionality. Having two separate metro stations for the North and South Squares suggests that they intend to keep it as two distinct stations under a single name.

It is also a shame that the grand plans I saw for Chongqing station, in Caiyuanba, have not progressed in the 10 years since I first saw plans for it's redevelopment. The riverside rooftop park and gardens area on those plans were fantastic and the open space is sorely needed in the hilly and crowded Yuzhong district of Chongqing.

Finally, a handy tip for looking at Chinese places on Google maps. To align the Satellite view with the map overlay, replace the .com with .cn for the Chinese site using the Chinese datum.

instead of
