HSR Yunlin Station is located at Huwei Township, Yunlin County. It is west of NTUH Yunlin Branch and east of Huwei Park-Central Taiwan Science Park. The exterior design of the station main building used various curved pillars to assemble a streamline structure which resembles tiger-like pattern and corresponds to the "Hu" (the Chinese word is as same as "tiger") of Huwei Township; the clear texture of glass windows in coordination with a mass area of the surrounding green scenery indicated an image of "forest mist". This infrastructure was planned, designed and constructed by THSRC and the contractor of this project is Evergreen Construction Corporation. The total area of station construction is 10.06 hectares with total internal ground space of 20,177 m2. The total construction budget was 15.888 hundred million NT dollars.
