From the epa.gov website:

March 2013 update
EPA found that dust levels measured around Midwest Generation’s Fisk Station and Crawford Station in December 2012 were well within both health and regulatory standards. The air monitoring determined dust concentrations around the two closed coal-fired generating stations were at levels typically found in the Chicago region. U.S. EPA also observed in December 2012 that radiation levels measured around houses near the facilities were at expected normal background concentrations and similar to those found in other Chicago residential neighborhoods.

Remediation of these types of sites can be difficult and long-term. I cannot respond directly to your question but can give you links to two articles. The first article implies that Mayor Emanuel has already begun interviewing developers for this site.
