    It sounds like the Obama garage will still be on the Midway site west of Stony Island, but now the foundation is taking on the responsibility for fundraising and construction instead of relying on somebody like CDOT to build it.

    The “underground” bit comes from the fact that the garage will have an extensive green roof (ala Maggie Daley Park) to replace the lost parkland.
