The CTA opened a new ‘L’ station in the Loop on Thursday, just in time for the morning rush.
The new Washington/Wabash station has been under construction since 2015.
The $75 million facility has a glass and steel skeleton to create a play of light resembling diamond facets. That’s what the city was hoping for, since it is located on Jewelers’ Row.
“The new CTA station at Washington and Wabash represents the best of Chicago’s heritage of architectural innovation while creating modern amenities for the thousands of travelers who utilize it every day,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement.
