Patio deck at Wrigley could be part of renovation

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says a deck that juts out from Wrigley Field over Sheffield Avenue may solve the dispute between the Cubs and the rooftop club owners across the street.

Emanuel's comments are significant. That's because Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts said he wouldn't begin construction as long as there was a threat of lawsuits by the rooftop owners. The owners have threatened to sue if the project cuts into their views and hurts their businesses. Last week the Chicago City Council approved a $500 million renovation project at Wrigley.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the deck could help resolve disagreements the two sides have. But rooftop owners say they aren't sure they support a patio deck.
