(65 ILCS 5/11-74.2-14) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-74.2-14)
    Sec. 11-74.2-14. The corporate authorities may at any time transfer and sell the fee simple title, or any lesser estate that they acquired to all or any part of the real property within the redevelopment area. No such sale shall be inconsistent with the provisions of paragraph (e) of Section 11-74.2-8.
    Such sales and transfers may be made to:
    (1) Any individual, association or corporation, organized under the laws of this State or of any other State or country, which may legally make such investments in this State, including foreign and alien insurance companies, as defined in Section 2 of the "Illinois Insurance Code"; or
    (2) Any body politic and corporate, public corporation or private individual, corporation, association or interest empowered by law to acquire, develop and use such real property for such uses, public or private, as are in accordance with the final redevelopment plan.
    To provide that the real property sold by the corporate authorities is used in accordance with the final redevelopment plan, the corporate authorities shall inquire into and satisfy themselves concerning the financial ability of the purchaser to complete the redevelopment in accordance with the redevelopment plan and shall require the purchaser to execute in writing such undertakings as the corporate authorities may deem necessary to obligate the purchaser to:
    (1) Use the land for the purposes designated in the approved plan;
    (2) Commence and complete the building of the improvements or the renovation of the property within the periods of time which the corporate authorities fix as reasonable; and
    (3) Comply with such other conditions as are necessary to carry out the purposes of the final redevelopment plan.
    Any redevelopment area may be sold either as an entirety or in such parcels as the corporate authorities may select. It is not necessary that title be acquired to all real property within the redevelopment area before the sale of a part thereof may be made as provided in this Section. All real property sold shall be sold at its use value which may be less than its acquisition cost. For purposes of this Division, use value represents the value at which the corporate authorities determine that such land should be made available in order that it may be developed or redeveloped for the purposes specified in the final redevelopment plan.
