Harrison Red Line Stop to Get Makeover

Back in the fall of last year, the city announced that the North entrance of the Harrison Red Line stop was going to get a makeover.  Well we finally get to see what the stop will look like soon (Via Curbed Chicago):
As the South Loop area continues to grow in population and as more students attend area classes or live nearby, a fresh coat of paint will be much welcomed by L riders. Aside from aesthetic improvements and repairs that should reduce water pooling around the stairs and platform (a huge problem at this station), the station will be upgraded with better security cameras, Train Tracker screens, and better placement of ticketing and entrances. However, the improvements won't all be below ground. The station will be the first to include newly designed glass and steel entrance canopies over the entrance stairways on State Street, breaking tradition from the throwback black wrought-iron look the CTA has been using for recent downtown area entrance canopies lately.
More renderings over at Curbed Chicago.

Looks pretty nice and modern to us!
