Report: Washington Park most likely spot for Obama library

CHICAGO (WLS) -- It's looking more like Washington Park could be the chosen site for the Obama presidential library.

The architecture website Common Edge reports an advisor to the Obama Foundation says Washington Park is a better fit for the library.

That site and Jackson Park are the two final sites in the running for the library.

The president and first lady are reportedly leaning toward modern and refined designs for the architecture of the building.

Architects are still being interviewed for the project. The president is expected to choose one later this year.
