ORDINANCE FOR LONG TERM EASEMENT


WHEREAS, the City of Chicago ("City") is a home rule unit of government by virtue ofthe provisions ofthe Constitution ofthe State of Illinois of 1970 and, as such, may exercise any power and perform any function pertaining to its government and affairs; and


WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Chicago, after due investigation and consideration, has determined that the nature and extent of the public use and the public interest to be subserved is such as to warrant a long term easement for existing vaults under the public streets described in the following ordinance; and


WHEREAS, Tribune Tower West (Chicago) Owner, LLC ("Grantee") is the owner of the property commonly identified as 137-165 E. Illinois Street and 431-451 N. Michigan Avenue (the "Property"): and


WHEREAS, the Property is improved with the existing Tribune Tower (the "Tower"), which has heretofore been designated as a Chicago Landmark under Chapter 2, Article XVII of the Chicago Municipal Code (Section 2-120-580 etseq.), and which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing building within the Michigan-Wacker Historic District; and


WHEREAS, the Property is bounded on the north by E. Illinois Street and on the west by N. Michigan Avenue, both of which were dedicated as public rights of way by Kinzie's Addition to Chicago, the plat of subdivision establishing the lots comprising the Property and other nearby land; and


WHEREAS, Kinzie's Addition to Chicago was acknowledged and filed for record in 1833, and recorded in 1834, prior to passage ofthe law now known as the Illinois Plat Act (the "Original Plat Act"); and


WHEREAS, the Original Plat Act established the statutory procedures for dedicating rights of way, and provided that fee simple title in the streets of plats thereafter recorded became vested in the public; and


WHEREAS, the Original Plat Act modified the common law rule that that title to dedicated streets is vested in the owners of property adjoining the streets, subject to a public easement for right of way purposes; and


WHEREAS, the rights ofthe public and private persons in streets of plats created prior to the passage of the Original Plat Act continue to be governed by the common law; and
|1010|



WHEREAS, the Kinzie v. Winston. 56 III. 56 (1870), the Illinois Supreme Court acknowledged that Kinzie's Addition to Chicago effected a common law dedication, as opposed to a statutory dedication, of platted streets for public use, and that the public holds an easement interest, not a fee interest, in the streets; and


WHEREAS, as a result of this common law dedication, and in accordance with the Kinzie decision, Owner continues to own the fee in the portions of E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue bordering the Property to the center of those streets and retains every right not inconsistent with the necessities ofthe public; and


WHEREAS, the City has historically used, and presently uses, E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, adjacent to the Property, as decked, bi-level streets and sidewalks accommodating vehicular and pedestrian traffic, with an upper level located at the level of primary building entrances and a lower level providing access to loading docks, service areas, and parking areas; and


WHEREAS, the Tower, which was completed in 1925, consists of approximately 36 stories located at and above upper level E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, and approximately seven levels located at and below lower level E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue; and


WHEREAS, portions of the Tower (hereinafter "Tower Vaults") located below lower level E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue extend northward and westward beyond the legally described Property boundaries, directly under the improvements comprising E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, including portions ofthe Tower housing mechanical and service equipment, service elevators, elevator pits, and storage rooms; and


WHEREAS, the location of the Tower Vaults is more fully described on the Plat of Easement attached hereto and made a part hereof as Exhibit A (the "Tower Easement Area"); and


WHEREAS, the Tower Easement Area is intended to correspond to the existing limits of the Tower Vaults, based on available information regarding the location of the exterior limits of the existing Tower Vaults; and


WHEREAS, Owner is currently rehabilitating the Tower to adaptively reuse the Tower for, residential uses, with ground floor commercial spaces, and in connection therewith, Owner requires the use of the Tower Vaults, for the continued operation and the adaptive reuse of the Tower; and


WHEREAS, as owner of fee simple title to the center ofthe streets bordering the Property, Owner has a right to occupy the Tower Easement Area and use the existing Tower Vaults without payment of compensation to the City, so long as such occupation and use does not interfere with the public easement; and

WHEREAS, the Department of Transportation has determined that Owner's use of the Tower Easement Area for the Tower Vaults will not interfere with the public right of way uses associated with E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, and that the adaptive reuse of the Tower will promote the general welfare of the City by encouraging the continued use, preservation, and rehabilitation of a Chicago Landmark, in fulfillment of the purposes set forth in Chapter 2, Article XVII ofthe Chicago Municipal Code (Section 2-120-580 et seq.); and


WHEREAS, the City is willing to grant Grantee an easement on substantially the same terms and conditions set forth in the Easement Agreement (the "Easement Agreement") attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit B; now, therefore,


BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO:

EASEMENT AGREEMENT (Tribune Tower Sublevel Building Areas)

This EASEMENT AGREEMENT (the "Agreement") is entered into as of this day of
, 2020, by and between the CITY OF CHICAGO, an Illinois home rule municipal
corporation, by and through its Department of Transportation, (the "City") and TRIBUNE TOWER WEST (CHICAGO) OWNER, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Owner"). City and Owner together shall be referred to herein as the "Parties".

RECITALS
Owner is the owner of the property located at 435 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, which is legally described on Exhibit A attached hereto and made a part hereof (the "Property"). The Property is improved with the existing Tribune Tower (the "Tower"), which has heretofore been designated as a Chicago Landmark under Chapter 2, Article XVII of the Chicago Municipal Code (Section 2-120-580 el seq.), and which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing building within the Michigan-Wacker Historic District.
The Property is bounded on the north by E. Illinois Street and on the west by N. Michigan Avenue, both of which were dedicated as public rights of way by Kinzie's Addition to Chicago, the plat of subdivision establishing the lots comprising the Property and other nearby land.
Kinzie's Addition to Chicago was acknowledged and filed for record on February 22,1833, and recorded on February 18, 1834, prior to passage of the law now known as the Illinois Plat Act (the "Original Plat Act"). The Original Plat Act became law on February 27, 1833, and established the statutory procedures for dedicating rights of way. The Original Plat Act further provided that fee simple title in the streets of plats thereafter recorded became vested in the public. This legislation modified the common law rule that that title to dedicated streets is vested in the owners of property adjoining the streets, subject to a public easement for right of way purposes.





EASTA163896518.6

D. The rights of the public and private persons in streets of plats' created prior to the passage of the Original Plat Act continue to be governed by the.common law.
In Kinzie v. Winston. 56 111. 56 (1870), the Illinois Supreme Court acknowledged that Kinzie's Addition to Chicago effected a common law dedication, as opposed to a statutory dedication, of platted streets for public use, and that the public holds an easement interest, not a fee interest, in the streets. As a result, and in accordance with the Kinzie decision, Owner continues to own the fee in the portions of E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue bordering the Property to the center of those streets and retains every right not inconsistent with the necessities of the public.
The City has historically used, and presently uses, E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, adjacent to the Property, as decked, bi-level streets and sidewalks accommodating vehicular and pedestrian traffic, with an upper level located at the level of primary building entrances and a lower level providing access to loading docks, service areas, and parking areas.
The Tower, which was completed in 1925, consists of approximately 36 stories located at and above upper level E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, and approximately seven levels located at and below lower level E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue. Portions of the Tower (hereinafter "Tower Vaults") located below lower level E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue extend northward and westward beyond the legally described Property boundaries, directly under the improvements comprising E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, including portions of the Tower housing mechanical and service equipment, service elevators, elevator pits, and storage rooms. The location of the Tower Vaults is described and depicted on Exhibit B attached hereto and made a part hereof (the "Tower Easement Area"). For purposes of this Agreement, the Tower Easement Area is intended to correspond to the existing limits of the Tower Vaults, based on available information regarding the location of the exterior limits of the existing Tower Vaults.
Owner is currently rehabilitating the Tower to adaptively reuse the Tower for residential uses, with ground floor commercial spaces. In connection therewith, Owner requires the use ofthe Tower Vaults, for the continued operation and the adaptive reuse of the Tower.

I. As owner of fee simple title to the center of the streets bordering the Property,
Owner has a right to occupy the Tower Easement Area and use the existing Tower Vaults without
payment of compensation to the City, so long as such occupation and use does not interfere with
the public easement.

J. The City has determined that Owner's use of the Tower Easement Area for the Tower Vaults will not interfere with the public right of way uses associated with E. Illinois Street and N. Michigan Avenue, and that the adaptive reuse ofthe Tower will promote the general welfare of the City by encouraging the continued use, preservation, and rehabilitation of a Chicago Landmark, in fulfillment of the purposes set forth in Chapter 2, Article XVII of the Chicago Municipal Code (Section 2-120-580 et seq.).





EAS'IM 63896518.6
