Statement From Mayor Emanuel On The Barack Obama Presidential Center

CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–June 30, 2016

“As the future home of the Barack Obama Presidential Center, the City of Chicago congratulates Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and Interactive Design Architects who have been chosen by the Obama Foundation to bring this legacy project to life. These two firms have a successful track record of creating innovative civic projects across the country, including the Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago. When complete, the Presidential Center will offer tremendous educational, cultural, and economic benefits to the City and its residents. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity doubles down on investments already being made on the South Side, creating opportunities for all Chicagoans.”
