After being closed for a month, the Harrison Red Line station in the South Loop reopened this morning for commuters. Previously, the 70 year old station was in pretty rough shape and in April the city announced that it would spend $10 million improving the station. The rehabilitation involved aesthetic and structural work that included new granite flooring in both the mezzanine and platform areas, new patterned ceramic tile walls, installation of security cameras and two canopies for the main entrances on Harrison. With the South Loop continuing to growth, having a nice new CTA station for the area will surely be a selling point for brokers and buyers.
