Well, I hope Headington doesn't buy it since he's done nothing with the property nearby.

All of that area is an excellent location to put a cluster of HQ2 buildings. ;)

^Or they could've built The Union here instead, and solved the lack of full-service grocery stores in the CBD.

I'm looking forward to the TT location at the Union, that will be an easy stop on the way home from work.

Got to be honest, there is a better use for the land than a museum that lets be honest, most people wont go to and is a little too niche of a market.

I just want to see this built as originally proposed for the site in the 80's....lol

With that unlimited height restriction I would rather see something larger. That ^ would have been a nice addition to the skyline but would have also been built as a fortress tower. If they did something tall and mixed use that would be awesome.

Tried to download the OM at that link and it says no longer available. Is your link old perhaps?

Absolutely this! To hell with the hideous blank walls of stucco and characterless glass. We need a masterpiece like this built!

I wonder what they've been doing since we last heard anything. Drawing? Deciding what will be there? Fundraising?

At least they didn't hire Joe-Blow's Museum Planning and Building Drawing place (lol)... With Beck being the firm, surely we'll hear more about this development, and more often.

I don't know if the land sold yet, but the owners definitely did put it up for sale. The museum's not happening.

Apparently Beck doesn't know that. Why would they just post a pic of their associates drawing up plans in the last week, for a client that obviously hired them? A client who is mentioned by name on Beck's social media site? It's too early for April Fool's. Whatever the *real* story is, it will be interesting to see.

Drove by today and saw that the parking lot had a chain link fence around the property

Good, one more parking lot is hopefully spoken for.

YES!! I am finally the person on the boards with an inside scoop. FINALLY!!!

Jokes aside, I heard from someone in the know that there isn't anything to get excited about here. Apparently they are cleaning up the lot to make way for a special event for grade school age children. They are working in partnership with the uplift school in the west end to put together some pop up museum/learning site that will be done on this lot.

I would have guessed a parking lot repaving.

Randomly drove by this site today, the fencing is pictures promoting the shraman family and their cause.. hard to tell anything by it, but what do you guys think? Is it just for a one time event or is the start of the museum?

Interesting. This whole time I thought the museum was going in on the lot across Griffin, immediately adjacent to the the proposed Perot tower. Maybe because I was assuming they were going to need a larger piece of land to accommodate the lawn, residential tower, and the actual museum. Oh well. haha

Could still be true^ This could be a staging area for something related to that project or maybe some event to promote their causes. They may own this and the larger parking lot.

They own both lots (1012 and 1100 McKinney) per DCAD.
