Mayor Rahm Emanuel has just two months left in office. What is he trying to get done before his last day?

On Wednesday, City Council approved two high-profile items left on Mayor Emanuel’s final to-do list: the $6 billion Lincoln Yards development and the $95 million police and fire training academy in West Garfield Park.

Morning Shift checks in with David Greising, president and CEO of the Better Government Association; Heather Cherone, managing editor and City Hall reporter at the Daily Line; and WBEZ politics reporter Dan Mihalopoulos, to find out more about Emanuel’s priorities before he leaves office.

Later, Chicago architecture sleuth Dennis Rodkin stops by to bring us another installment of "What's That Building?" We all know the proposed site for the Barack Obama Presidential Center is in Jackson Park, but tucked next to a Walgreen’s in Hoffman Estates, you’ll find a nondescript low rise building that’s currently home to all the documents related to former president Barack Obama’s eight years in office.
