Groenplaats premetro station was opened on 25 March 1975 and is one of the oldest premetro stations in Antwerp. It is recognizable by the green decoration on the platform toward Linkeroever in the brick decoration toward Meir. On the platforms one can see The Rainforest, an artwork of Menno, a green tile wall in waves.
Originally was this station a terminus. There was a loop underneath the Groenplaats where the trams could go back to Meir. The loop is now a dead end.
The level -1 is a ticket hall and leads to two platforms. It has exits that lead to the Karel de Grote-Hogeschool, the Groenplaats, the underground parking and GB Shopping Center. On the level -2 is the platform to Linkeroever, and on the level -3 the platform to Meir.
Originally line 2 and line 15 served this station. On 1 April 1996 line 3 was connected to this station, and line 5 followed on 4 March 2006. On 1 September 2012 line 2 was replaced by line 9.
Starting in 2019 the Groenplaats will be redesigned, both above ground and underground. The premetro station will lose an exit (Nationalestraat, Karel de Groote-Hogeschool) and the exit 'Groenplaats' will be relocated. The access to the station and the platforms will be improved through elevators for wheelchairs and prams.
