Broad Bailing on Beverly Hills?

New, 18 comments

The Architects Newspaper believes Eli Broad is ditching his plans to build a museum at Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards in Beverly Hills, and will instead plunk down his art collection somewhere else in the region. Via AN: "Sources close to the project have told AN that the billionaire art collector is looking elsewhere, while the Broad Art Foundation—asked to submit specific plans to the Beverly Hills Planning Division for an upcoming environmental impact review—has not communicated with the department since late April." Previously, Broad had a short list of architects Thom Mayne, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Rafael Viñoly, and Christian de Portzamparc for the project. [AN]
