Obama Presidential Library will boost POAH's developments in Chicago

July 28, 2016

In today's Chicago Tribune article about the decision by the President and Mrs. Obama to build his presidential library on Jackson Park, POAH's Vice President for Chicago Bill Eager says "He expects [it] to further diversify the neighborhood with income levels, and ultimately help drive more market-rate development."

According to the paper: "The Obama presidential library that appears headed for Chicago's Jackson Park is expected to give a boost to a pioneering nearby redevelopment project aimed at turning a blighted Woodlawn area around with stores and housing that will charge full market rents."
