    The to-be-redesigned plaza at the Western Avenue Brown Line stop is outdated, unsightly and needs an overhaul, neighbors previously said.

    LINCOLN SQUARE — Neighbors want the soon-to-be-renovated plaza at the Western Avenue Brown Line stop in Lincoln Square to match the neighborhood’s architecture near Giddings Plaza.
