Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michele on Wednesday unveiled design plans for a 200,000-square-foot campus on Chicago’s South Side that will house the Obama Presidential Center.

The center will sit near a lagoon that runs into Lake Michigan in the Jackson Park neighborhood and will feature three buildings – a museum, a forum and a library – as well as outdoor gathering spaces.

The Obama Foundation said that the center, located near Chicago's historically African-American Woodlawn neighborhood, will revitalize the Jackson Park neighborhood by attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors and creating new jobs on the South Side.
