CTA unveils contemporary design of future 95th Street Red Line Station

On Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel unveiled design renderings for the new 95th Street Red Line Station as part of the Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) project to modernize transit on the city's south side.

Slated to begin in spring 2014, the $240 million reconstruction project will create a new, reconfigured station to serve the CTA's busiest rail line. The terminal project follows the reconstruction of the Red Line South between downtown and 95th Street, which reopened last month.

The new station design features a contemporary architecture style including glass and steel canopies and light-filled, glass-enclosed structures with expanded space for riders, CTA officials said in a press release.

The station will feature buildings north and south of 95th Street, connected by an enclosed walkway over 95th Street. The new facility will offer three times the retail and concession space as the existing station, CTA officials said.
