Earlier this month the CTA board approved the agreement with the city to tap funds from the Wilson Yard TIF District. Planned station improvements include replacing flooring, walls, windows and railings inside the station, said a CTA spokesperson.
Other enhancements would include replacing the roof, electrical system, plumbing and heating/cooling units and improving the concession spaces in the Gerber building — the Wilson stationhouse built in 1923. The improvements are targeted to preserving the historic building.
No word yet on when construction will start. But this is really great news.
