Once known as the 'most remote metro station', Fengbei metro station at the intersection of Pinglan Road and Feihong Road in Xiaoshan district, Hangzhou, garnered internet attention due to its isolation.
In preparation for the Asian Games, extensive renovations have linked the metro to the main venues and the Asian Games Village. The station has shed its sense of isolation and risen to prominence.
Today, on the western side of the station, the bustling core of Qianjiang Century City stands tall with a dazzling skyline. On the north bank, where rivers converge, what was once a vast field has transformed into a picturesque landscape adorned with lush greenery. From an aerial perspective, the display of 'Hangzhou' symbolizes the station's complete metamorphosis into a charming park.
Fengbei Station is set to become an integral part of the Qiantang Bay Base, serving as a hub for technological innovation headquarters, innovative financial headquarters, and international digital media headquarters. The journey from desolation to splendor is a testament to the city's progress and vision.
