Been to Montpellier train station recently?

I was in Montpellier a few years ago. I've read that the train station was recently rebuilt.

Is this the case?

If so, are the regular and TGV stations still in the same building or at least right next to each other? Or are they quite a distance apart like in Avignon?

Thanks.

I believe it's all in one place, not like Avignon. This seems to support that -

St Roche is basically the same as ever. Only the streets surrounding the station have changed as Montpellier has expanded its tramway network.

Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, and Tours have special TGV stations because the original stations were end-of-the-line style and the TGVs that serve them now do so by making short duration, intermediary stops.

Places such as Nimes and Montpellier never built end-of-line stations and trains severing these cities easily stop and continue onward.

Yes, Saint Roch has been remodeled but not at all moved from its location. I haven't been there for 2 years, and I am certainly hoping that it is easier to get to the rental cars now than when it was all a construction zone.
