New look at the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago

November 12, 2019


Officials have released fresh renderings of the planned $500 million Obama Presidential Center in Chicago to show architectural details like an 88-foot glass expanse on a tower.


The Obama Foundation recently released updated drawings which officials said were based on community feedback.


The center includes plaza and four buildings, including a tower which is likely to display a quotation from an Obama speech.  The glass cutout is designed to let in more light.  Foundation officials said the site will include a two-acre children's play area.


Foundation officials said they have a plan to support sustainability too, including planting more trees and a one-acre wetland that'll capture and treat storm water.


The complex will sit on a nearly 20-acre section of Jackson Park along Lake Michigan. Learn more at
