Bid Package Information

To Our Valued Industry Partners:

First, Lakeside Alliance and the Obama Foundation would like to thank you for your continued interest and support regarding the Obama Presidential Center.  Given your recent involvement in the project and our business relationship, we’d like to update you on the current status of the procurement and construction schedule of the project.

The Obama Foundation remains committed to the construction of the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park. However at the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the Obama Foundation to postpone the anticipated construction start date.  While yet undetermined, it is later than our anticipated start in Q3-2020.  Given that, bidding activities, and certain awards of bid work, are being temporarily paused, pending the establishment of a new start date.

As Construction Manager for the project, Lakeside Alliance will continue supporting the completion of the construction documents in Q3-2020, the development of the schedule moving forward, and ultimately, the building of the Obama Presidential Center.

While unexpected, we felt it important to clearly and accurately communicate the status of the project to our partners.    Thank you again for your support and our business relationship.  We look forward to working with you in the very near future.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
