Obama Just Dropped The First Images Of His Presidential Library - Yikes

A new rendering of the Obama Presidential Center A new rendering of the Obama Presidential Center

Since August, when the first garage plan was made public, the design has drawn criticism from open-space advocates who called it an intrusion on public land.

Changes include altering the museum building's design, creating additional landscaped paths, dispersing play areas around the campus, preserving an existing local garden and relocating the parking facility.

At least one of the groups that had opposed the garage's original location, Save the Midway, was invited to a December 20th meeting at the Obama Foundation's headquarters where potential changes to the garage were discussed, according to a story by the Chicago Sun-Times. "You were a community organizer in the Roseland neighborhood".

The professors are also highly critical of the now-abandoned plan to construct an above-ground parking garage that was meant to utilize parts of Midway Plaisance, protesting that although "public lands are being given away, all the profits from this parking lot will go to the Obama Foundation".

"We thoroughly evaluated several options for the parking facility, including on site at Jackson Park", the foundation said in its Monday statement. The Presidential Center design envisions three buildings, a museum, library and forum.

Crews are expected to break ground later this year and open doors in 2021. Obama has said he will not sign a community benefits agreement.

The library will also take over large sections of two historic public parks, Jackson Park and Midway Plaisance, and force the closure of a major South Side thoroughfare, Cornell Avenue.

"We also note that the Obama Center has abandoned its original plans to be a Presidential Library", it states, referring to the fact that the center will only have electronic archives on site. "Today's development is the next step in realizing that vision by creating a cultural destination in Jackson Park and an economic engine for the South Side and City of Chicago".
