The University of Illinois-Chicago has added a third potential site to its bid for the Obama Presidential Library.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the university said Monday that the new potential site includes 23 acres west of campus. An abandoned rail viaduct that Sears once used cuts through the site.
Two previously announced potential locations are on campus.
The university’s bid is among five separate Chicago locations expected to bid by Monday’s deadline to become the home of the planned library.
The others are the University of Chicago, Chicago State University, the Bronzeville neighborhood and a retail and residential development near Lake Michigan.
New York City and Hawaii are also bidding to host the library.
