CHICAGO — Design plans for a $240 million remake of the 95th Street/Dan Ryan Red Line station were unveiled by Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office Tuesday.

(For a glimpse at the designs, click on the slideshow to the right.)

The station will have buildings both north and south on 95th Street that will be connected with an enclosed walkway. The station will have three times the retail space it has now and feature artwork by Chicago artist Theaster Gates.

The project is expected to create 700 construction jobs, with work beginning in the middle of 2014.

The Chicago Transit Authority and Gates have solicited community input on the design of the station, which will include glass and steel canopies.
