The station is far larger and more open than other stations on the transit line, although many of its features have yet to be constructed — there are no platforms, nor any apparent surface access. Its layout also suggests the station may feature at least one side platform when completed, compared to all other stations on the line which feature island platforms. Escalators lead up from the concourse to a small entrance hall, although there is no access or surface entrance beyond this point — the only way into the station is via a tunnel to the south that allows construction workers and equipment to reach the site, of through the nearby sewer system to the north. Scaffolding and construction tools can be seen around the station, as well as some construction workers.
Pillbox North station is prominently featured in The Jewel Store Job, as the crew uses the tunnels for their escape. In GTA Online, the mission Sinking Feeling for Lester Crest also takes place in the station construction site.
