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.
