ORDINANCE

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

WHEREAS, pursuant to an ordinance adopted by the City Council of the City ("City Council") on March 27, 2002, and published at pages 81231-81472 of the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council ("Journal") of such date, the City Council: (i) approved a certain redevelopment plan and project (the "Redevelopment Plan") for the 47th/King Drive Redevelopment Project Area (the "Redevelopment Area"), pursuant to the Illinois Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act, as amended, 65 ILCS 5/11-74.4-1 et seq. (the "TIF Act"), (ii) designated the Redevelopment Area as a "conservation area" redevelopment project area pursuant to the TIF Act; and (iii) adopted tax increment allocation financing pursuant to the TIF Act as a means of financing certain Redevelopment Area redevelopment project costs (as defined in the TIF Act) incurred pursuant to the Redevelopment Plan; and

WHEREAS, the City is the owner of two vacant parcels of land located at 539-41 East 46th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60653, which are legally described on Exhibit A attached hereto and incorporated herein (the "Property"), and which are located in the Redevelopment Area; and

WHEREAS, R&D Builders LLC, an Illinois limited liability company ("Grantee"), submitted a proposal to purchase the Property from the City for the sum of One Hundred Thirty Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($130,000.00) (the "Purchase Price"); and

WHEREAS, the Purchase Price represents the appraised fair market value of the Property as of July 12, 2021; and

WHEREAS, Grantee intends to construct a two-story, single-family home of all brick (including limestone accents and a metal cornice) with a basement and detached two-car garage on each parcel comprising the Property, as depicted in the drawings attached hereto and incorporated herein as Exhibit B (the "Project"); and

WHEREAS, Grantee owns a lot adjacent to the Property at 543 E. 46th Street and intends to construct a third home on this parcel; and

WHEREAS, the Project is consistent with the Redevelopment Plan; and

WHEREAS, by Resolution No. 22-003-21, adopted on January 20,2022, the Chicago Plan Commission approved the disposition of the Property; and

WHEREAS, by Resolution No. 22-CDC-2, adopted on January 18, 2022, the CDC authorized the Department of Planning and Development (the "Department") to advertise its intent to negotiate a sale of the Property with Grantee and to request alternative proposals for the redevelopment of the Property, and recommended the sale of the Property to Grantee if no responsive alternative proposals were received at the conclusion of the advertising period, or, if alternative

proposals were received, if the Department determined in its sole discretion that it was in the best interest ofthe City to proceed with Grantee's proposal; and

WHEREAS, public notice advertising the Department's intent to enter into a negotiated sale of the Property with Grantee and requesting alternative proposals appeared in the Chicago Tribune on December 13 and 27, 2021; and

WHEREAS, no other responsive proposals were received by the deadline set forth in the aforesaid notices; now, therefore,

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

SECTION 1. The foregoing recitals, findings and statements of fact are hereby adopted as the findings of the City Council.

SECTION 2. The sale of the Property (or any parcel comprising a portion of the Property) to Grantee for the Purchase Price (or a prorated portion of the Purchase Price if the parcels comprising the Property are sold separately) is hereby approved, subject to Grantee's satisfaction of each of the following conditions precedent to closing (unless waived by the Department in its sole discretion):
Grantee must submit to the Department, and the Department must approve, the final construction plans and specifications for the Project (or either of the two homes comprising the Project if construction is phased); and
Grantee must obtain all building permits and other required permits and approvals necessary to construct the Project (or either of the two homes comprising the Project if construction is phased) and submit evidence thereof to the Department.

If Grantee fails to close on the acquisition of the Property (both parcels) within three (3) years of the date of passage and approval of this ordinance, then this ordinance will be rendered null and void and of no further effect as to such Property (or as to any parcel that has not yet been transferred), unless the Commissioner, in the Commissioner's sole discretion, extends the closing date. Grantee shall pay all escrow fees and other title insurance fees and closing costs.

SECTION 3. The commissioner of the Department (the "Commissioner"), or a designee of the Commissioner, is each hereby authorized, with the approval of the City's Corporation Counsel as to form and legality, to negotiate, execute and deliver such documents as may be necessary or appropriate to carry out and comply with the provisions of this ordinance, with such changes, deletions and insertions as shall be approved by the Commissioner or the Commissioner's designee. Such documents may contain terms and provisions that the Commissioner or the Commissioner's designee deems appropriate, including indemnification, releases, affidavits and other documents by the City as may be reasonably necessary to remove exceptions from title with respect to the Property or otherwise may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to consummate the transaction contemplated hereby.



|1010|
SECTION 4. The Mayor or the Mayor's proxy is authorized to execute, and the City Clerk or the Deputy City Clerk is authorized to attest, one or more quitclaim deeds conveying the Property to Grantee, or to a land trust of which Grantee is the sole beneficiary, or to a business entity of which Grantee is the sole controlling party. Without limiting the quitclaim nature of the deed, the conveyance of the Property shall be subject to the following: the standard exceptions in an ALTA title insurance policy; general real estate taxes and any special assessments or other taxes; easements, encroachments, covenants, restrictions and liens of record and not shown of record; such other title defects as may exist; and any and all exceptions caused by the acts of Grantee or its agents. In addition, the deed shall include the following conditions and covenants, in substantially the form set forth below, which are a part of the consideration for the Property and which shall run with the land and be binding upon and enforceable against Grantee and Grantee's successors and assigns:
Covenant to Build Single-Family Home. Grantee shall construct a two-story, single-family home of all brick (including limestone accents and a metal cornice) with a basement and detached two-car garage on the Property ("Home") in accordance with the site plan and elevations previously approved by the Department of Planning and Development ("Department") within eighteen (18) months of the date of this Deed. No material deviation from the previously approved site plan and elevations is permitted without written approval from the Department. If this condition is not met, the City may record a notice of default against the Property and shall have the right to exercise any and all remedies available to it at law or in equity. Upon completion of the Home, Grantee shall submit a written request to the Department for a certificate of completion. If the Department determines that Grantee has completed the Home in accordance with this covenant, the Department shall provide Grantee with the certificate of completion. The certificate shall be in recordable form and shall, upon recording, constitute a conclusive determination of satisfaction and termination of the covenant in this section.
Environmental Screening. The City, acting through its Bureau of Environmental, Health and Safety Management in the Department of Assets, Information and Services ("Department"), has conducted a review ("Limited Screening") of certain internal files and certain other publicly available records ("Review Documents") in an effort to identify potential environmental concerns associated with the Property ("Environmental Findings"). Grantee acknowledges that Grantee has previously received a memo summarizing the Department's Limited Screening, and that the City has made all Review Documents available to Grantee for inspection and copying upon request.
Limited Nature of City's Records Review. Grantee acknowledges that the City did not perform a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment or conduct a thorough environmental investigation of the Property, and that the City's review of internal records and other information was limited. Grantee acknowledges that the Department's Limited Screening may not have located all internal or publicly available documents relating to the condition of the Property, and that there may be
, other sources or types of contamination affecting the Property. Grantee acknowledges

|1010|
that the City is not obligated to locate all such documentation or perform a thorough environmental investigation.
Historic Contamination of Urban Land. Grantee acknowledges that soil and groundwater in urban areas, including Chicago, are frequently impacted by historic environmental contamination, such as (a) buried demolition debris containing lead-based paint or asbestos, (b) underground heating oil tanks, (c) off-site migration of chemicals from surrounding property previously or currently used for gas stations, dry cleaners, or other commercial, industrial or manufacturing land uses, (d) unauthorized "fly" dumping, (e) nearby railroad operations, and (f) airborne deposit of lead and other contaminants from historic use of lead gasoline and polluting industrial or manufacturing uses.
As Is," "Where Is" and "With All Faults" Conveyance. Grantee acknowledges that Grantee has had an opportunity to inspect the Property, and is relying solely upon Grantee's own inspection and other due diligence activities in determining whether to acquire the Property, and not upon any information provided by or on behalf of the City with respect thereto, including without limitation, the Review Documents and any summary thereof. Grantee acknowledges and agrees that the Property is being conveyed, and Grantee accepts the Property, in its "AS IS," "WHERE IS" and "WITH ALL FAULTS" condition without any covenant, representation, or warranty, express or implied, of any kind, regarding the physical or environmental condition of the Property or the suitability of the Property for any purpose whatsoever. Grantee acknowledges and agrees that Grantee is solely responsible for any investigation and remediation work necessary to put the Property in a condition which is suitable for its intended use.
Release of City. Grantee, on behalf of Grantee and Grantee's heirs, successors and assigns, and anyone claiming by, through or under any of them, hereby releases, relinquishes and forever discharges Grantor and its officers, employees, agencies, departments and officials, from and against any and all claims, demands, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees and court costs) based upon, arising out of or in any way connected with, directly or indirectly, the environmental or physical condition of the Property.
47th/King Drive Redevelopment Project Area. The Property is located in the 47th/King Drive Redevelopment Project Area ("Area") established pursuant to ordinances adopted by the City Council on March 27, 2002. Grantee is obligated to use the Property only for uses permitted under the redevelopment plan for the Area, until such redevelopment plan expires. Grantee's acceptance of this Deed shall be deemed to be Grantee's agreement to comply with such use restrictions.

SECTION 5. If any provision of this ordinance shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect any of the other provisions of this ordinance.


|1010|
SECTION 6. All ordinances, resolutions, motions or orders in conflict with this ordinance are hereby repealed to the extent of such conflict.

SECTION 7. This ordinance shall be in full force and effect immediately upon its passage and approval.
