Ryan & Ryan represents property owners in eminent domain cases involving METRA and Chicago Transit Authority (“CTA”) Projects.
Currently, Ryan & Ryan represent five parcels on State Street in Chicago in condemnation cases filed by the CTA for the 95th Street Terminal Improvement Project along the CTA Red Line. Previously, Ryan & Ryan represented four parcels in Downers Grove for the underpass related to the METRA Belmont Avenue train station. We also represented seventeen parcels in condemnation cases filed by the CTA for the Brown Line Expansion Project, primarily located in the Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods of Chicago. In these eminent domain cases, Ryan & Ryan obtained just compensation for full takings, as well as partial takings and air easements.
Two notable results against the CTA can be found on our Selected Results page (Parking Lot in Chicago, Illinois & CTA Acquisition of three-story retail building).
