Why the Santa Monica Museum Option Won't Die

New, 11 comments

It's well-known Eli Broad is leaning towards downtown in terms of his proposed art museum, but what's his official word on why he's keeping Santa Monica alive as an option? Broad told the Downtown News that building on Grand Avenue involves dealing with the Community Redevelopment Agency, the County Board of Supervisors (some of whom are against the project), and the Grand Avenue Authority. “Santa Monica is smart,” Broad said. “Their attitude is, look, [with us] you’re one-stop shopping... when you get tired of all this stuff downtown, we’re ready.” [Downtown News]
