Clinton Library Begins Little Rock's Revitalization

Property values in the area around the new Clinton Presidential Library development in Little Rock have doubled since the library was announced.

"Concrete and steel now rise at the foot of newly named President Clinton Avenue, where the Clinton Presidential Center is scheduled to open next year. The center's construction, with its $160 million price tag, has also spurred commitments for $700 million in other downtown projects.... Clinton's aim to use his presidential library to transform a world beset with racial and religious strife starts is already benefiting a city once equated with bigotry and segregation, developers and proponents said."
