The CTA and Jones Lang LaSalle will also roll out additional available properties over the next several months.

“Attractive concession spaces and storefronts contribute to a positive image of public transportation and are an important source of revenue for the CTA,” said Joe Harmening, CTA’s Director of Infrastructure Support.  “Streamlining the process by which retail and concession space is leased moves us closer to our goal of transforming these spaces into true amenities for our customers and the communities we serve.”

The new leasing assignment is the result of an ordinance amendment approved last week by the CTA Transit Board that allows retail/concession space on CTA property to be marketed for lease on the open market. The new process better aligns the CTA’s leasing process with practices common in the private sector retail leasing industry.

Jones Lang LaSalle has served as the CTA’s exclusive real estate services provider since 2008.
