O'Hare unveils overhaul of international terminal

CHICAGO — The city of Chicago has unveiled a $26 million overhaul of O'Hare Airport's international terminal.

It's the first redevelopment since Terminal 5's construction in 1993 and includes two dozen new high-end retail and dining options.

It also features sleek interior design upgrades that give parts of the terminal the feel of a comfy lounge or trendy nightclub.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel says Friday that the re-design reflects Chicago's "distinct style and spirit" and will place the city at the "center of the global tourism conversation."

Among the new offerings are a spa, a local gourmet deli called The Goddess & Grocer and a restaurant overseen by celebrity chef Rick Bayless.

And coming soon are an Emporio Armani and a Michael Kors shop.
