According to the news source, the municipal People's Committee has already approved the station, which will cover 3.2 hectares near Yen So Park, just off Ring Road 3.

The facility will feature three floors and one basement for parking, while much of the technology for passengers will be automated. LED panels, for example, will display all of the information visitors need.
