@greenlion, could you post large renderings of the Shijiazhuang South Station? It looks very promising.
And what's it's original name? I can't find info about it when searching 石家庄南站.
Thanks!

The official name is called Shijiazhuang South Station, because it is located to the south of the old Shijiazhuang Station,but people usually call it Shijiazhuang New Passenger Station 石家庄新客站

I'd like to know more about the Shijiazhuang South Station. I had never even heard of this city before that post. It sounds little like the Hongqiao transport hub minus the airport. The renderings are confusing: is part of the railway station underground? The subway lines are too, presumably. Shijiazhuang is listed on Wikipedia as one of the cities for which a metro is in the planning phase, which means it is several years away. So how can it open in 2011? Why haven't we seen construction pictures?

Shijiazhuang (Shi Jia Zhuang) is the capital city of Hebei Province.

Hongqiao hub is much larger IMO, but still this station is very impressive. It will have three floors underground and two above ground. Its west part and east part will open in 2011 and 2012 respectively, while the metro may take a longer time to finish. It is common that new HSR stations in China open one part at a time.

Some off topic pictures. But when I think of Shijiazhuang construction, this is what come first to my mind:

I'd like to introduce more about Shijiazhuang History, this city is describe as "Train pulls City" by Chinese media, by some means this city is a "Railway City", the history of the city is just like the History of Chinese Railway.

In early 20th century the area of Shijiazhuang was no more than 0.1 square kilometers and had a population of only 600 and 200 households, actually the name Shijiazhuang means "Village of Shi Family" in Chinese, today the Shijiazhuang prefecture has a population of around 10 million, 2.5 million people lives in the urban city, and it also has four star cities around it, each of them has a population of 200 thousand to 300 thousand. the develop of Shijiazhuang is a miracle.

The growth of Shijiazhuang into one of China's major cities began in 1902 as the Luhan (Jinghan, Beijing - Wuhan) Railway, which was invested and built by France and Belgium ran through Shijiazhuang and a station was set up in Shijiazhuang Village, In 1903 Zhengtai (Shitai, Shijiazhuang - Taiyuan) Railway began to be built, Thus Shijiazhuang became the connection of the two railways.

Accompanying with the operation of railway, several morden industries were set up including Zhengtai Mechanical Factory (Now Shijiazhuang Vehicle Factory), Daxing Cotton Mill (Now Shijiazhuang Weave Stock Limited), Jingxing Mine and Zhengfeng Mine, etc.

Picture:

Shijiazhuang Railway Station, 1902


Zhengtai Hotel, A france style Hotel built in 1907, Both Sun Yat-Sen & Chiang Kai Shek had stayed here during their way to Beijing


the Great Stone Bridge, built by france workers and Chinese residents in 1907, linked the east part and west part of the city, now becomes a Symble of the city



On 1937 Japanese invaders occupied Shijiazhuang. They paid great attention to Shijiazhuang's transportation position, so they took a series of measures to make Shijiazhuang as their military base for invading the North China.the japanese built the 3rd railway of the city - Shide (Shijiazhuang - Dezhou) railway in 1940 - 1941, and the city's traffic and economic position was further promoted.

Shijiazhuang Station during the leberation war period


Since 1949, Shijiazhuang's political, economic and cultural position had been further promoted and it became a special administrative area. Shijiazhuang became the central city of the regions and in 1968, it becomes Capital City of Hebei Province.

the current Shijazhuang (Center) Station, will turn to be Railway Museum after the New Station completed.


Currentlly Shijiazhuang

So, now you can travel with high speed train from Shanghai to Guangzhou, right?

Also, will Xi'an North with 378,425 sq.m area be the largest in the World?


Thanks for the updates again guys. This is my favorite thread on skyscrapercity

the Chinese media only confirm Xi'an North station is the largest station in Asia, so honestly we don't know if it is the largest station in the world or not
