Chicago O'Hare International Airport debuted its $26 million renovation of Terminal 5 last week. The international terminal now features 24 retail stores and restaurants, as well as a XpresSpa featuring massages and manicures. "From now on, when you land in the world-class city, you're going to get a world-class welcome in the city of Chicago," said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Chicago’s O’Hare Airport recently completed the $26 million upgrade of Terminal 5. The airport has completely reconfigured and streamlined the terminal checkpoint and added a variety of shops and restaurants inside. For example, XpresSpa provides massages, manicures, pedicures, facials and hot shaves, and new eateries include a Asian restaurant, a wine bar and a burger restaurant. The terminal also features a variety of luxury retailers, including Salvatore Ferragamo and Michael Kors.
An XpresSpa has opened at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The spa, in Terminal 5, offers a wide range of treatments including massages, hot shaves and facials. The company operating the spa also has other airport locations, both domestic and international.
Chicago O'Hare International Airport plans to sell general airport bonds to raise revenue of $899.1 million. Proceeds from the bond sale will be used for capital improvements, as well as refunding airport debt.
O'Hare International Airport in Chicago will receive $12 million in stimulus funds, but the $15 billion expansion currently under way at O'Hare did not qualify for federal funding. The airport will use the $12 million to widen a taxiway and repave an existing runway. O'Hare is still trying to secure funding for the second phase of the expansion, which will include a new runway and terminal.
