Chicago transit station hindering sale of Thompson Center

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel appears to be throwing a monkey wrench into plans by the state to sell the James R. Thompson Center.

Emanuel on Tuesday expressed concerns about what will happen to the Chicago Transit Authority station on the property.

Michael Hoffman of Illinois’ Central Management Services Agency says his office is trying to work out the fate and cost of the station, which is inside the Thompson Center.

Emanuel says he will not saddle city residents with the cost of repairs or reconstruction of the station, which is a transfer point for six CTA lines. He contends it will cost $80 million to $120 million to rebuild the station.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Bruce Rauner says Emanuel is using an inflated number in order to “extort the state taxpayers for more money than the property is worth.”
