And while community members have anxious that the Obama Presidential Center will take up space in a way that inexorably alters the historic place's character, the new plans assert that the closure of nearby Cornell Drive will create a net gain in total park acreage.
The Obama Presidential Center will include a 235-foot tall museum building, a forum building intended for community programming, a library building, a community athletic center and an outdoor plaza, according to a release from the Obama Foundation.
The letter also states that the center will cost Chicago taxpayers "hundreds of millions of dollars". Museum and library buildings will be joined by a space called the "Forum", where, according to the former U.S. president, "anybody can come together for some local programming, or to gather for larger-scale events in an auditorium, maybe record something in a broadcast studio, or just have a bite to eat". Clearly the choice of Washington Park, specifically the plans developed by John Ronan Architects, opens the center up to a myriad of possibilities, a lot of them eliminating the problems of the Jackson Park site. "We want to create an economic engine for the South Side of Chicago", Obama said in a video address.
Barack Obama may be the pride of University of Chicago, but a lot of heavy hitters there are strongly opposing current plans for his library. Jackson Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the most important urban parks in the nation. "The majority of the space will be free and open to the public".
The new design proposal comes shortly after the Obama Foundation said it would acquiesce to public concern, replacing a proposed multilevel parking structure with an underground garage.
The Obama Center wasted taxpayer money.
