Project Description

CTA has partnered with the Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) to revitalize the southeast
corner of 63rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue with a new multi-use office/retail space, which will
contain a new Cottage Grove station house. Overall the general design concept relocates the Cottage
Grove station house within POAH's new Woodlawn Crossing mixed-use development at the southeast
corner of 63rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, while the existing platforms and other related rail
infrastructure will remain in their current locations. The POAH design concept also adds a new
pedestrian bridge and canopy to connect the existing platforms to POAH's Woodlawn Crossing building.
The project will dramatically decrease the footprint of the CTA's Cottage Grove station over the
intersection of 63rd Street and Cottage Grove, which will provide more natural light at street-level and
directly respond to community feedback. The project features a number of station enhancements that
will improve customer experience, including attractive new sculptural canopies, contemporary station
finishes, a new elevator, and brighter lighting inside the station and on the platform. This funding will
provide for the demolition of the existing station house and canopy, new stationhouse including finishes
within a new multi-use office/retail space conforming to CTA standards and criteria, platform extensions,
new stairs from platform to grade, a new platform canopy, new friction buffer stops and associated track
work, structural steel girder and stringer repairs, new lighting, new signage, and new train operator's
