  To update this, the renovated station reopened on October 5. Most of the Asian-inspired paint scheme is gone, though the pagoda roof has been retained, and as of October 22 was being repainted in red and green--apparently the only place where the former colors still appear.

  Originally this was just another of Charles Rawson's Prairie School station houses, dating from the elevation of the North Side Main Line north of Wilson, completed in 1921. But in the early 1990's it was redone with some distinctive Asian touches, including a red and green paint scheme on the headhouse and a little pagoda roof atop the platform canopy, reflecting the development of Argyle Street as the heart of the "New Chinatown" commercial strip. At present (October 2012) it's closed as part of CTA's interim renovation of the north end of the Red Line, and it will be interesting to see if the Asian detailing is carried further. .
