Proposed architecture for Obama's Presidential Center released

Parking is expensive, and though public lands are being given away, all the profits from this parking lot will go to the Obama Foundation.

In its letter, the group expressed concerns the center won't be a "bold vision for urban living", but instead will become "an object-lesson in the mistakes of the past".

Now that the Obama Foundation has acquiesced to neighborhood demands that its parking garage not be placed on the Midway Plaisance, it's time to revisit the entire plan to place the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park.

'Dragon Ball FighterZ' open beta features 11 characters, Hit joins roster
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 first launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in October 2016, followed by Switch in September 2017. The beta ends on Tuesday 16th January at those same times, so everyone has at least a couple of days to take it for a spin.

"We urge the Obama Foundation to explore alternative sites on the South Side that could be developed with more economic benefits, better public transportation, and less cost to taxpayers", the professors wrote. "Overall, this is a socially regressive plan". "Michelle and I are absolutely grateful to all of you for being a part of all this remarkable process", said former President Barack Obama in a video.

The foundation hopes to break ground on the center in late-2018, with plans to open its doors in 2021.

The complex consists mainly of four buildings- the museum tower, a forum, a library and an athletic center, plus a plaza.

AFC Wildcard Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars: Preview and Prediction
On Sunday afternoon, the Jacksonville Jaguars secured their first win in the postseason since the Wild Card Round back in 2007. The first quarter consisted of three drives by Buffalo and two by Jacksonville all of which resulted in punts by both teams.

However, the Obama Foundation announced that the proposed site on designated historic parkland would not be administered by the National Archives and Records Administration and would not function as a presidential library housing records, manuscripts, and papers from the Obama White House.

The library will be housed in Chicago and will include a museum building that is 235 feet tall. Because, according to the professors, the Obama Presidential Center wastes millions of taxpayer dollars in an already broke state, destroys a public park and is "socially regressive" to the affluent community. It looks to many neighbors that the only new jobs created will be as staff to the Obama Center, hence the widespread support for a Community Benefits Agreement.
