Ryan & Ryan represented five parcels on State Street in Chicago in condemnation cases filed by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) for the 95th Street Terminal Improvement Project along the Red Line. Ryan & Ryan represented four parcels in Downers Grove for the underpass related to the METRA train station in Belmot Avenue.
We also represented 18 parcels in condemnation cases filed by the CTA for the Brown Line Expansion Project, the Red Line Extension Project, and Purple Modernization Program, 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 Case Studies page (Partial Taking – Surface Parking Lot & Partial Taking – Commercial Building).
