The Board of Supervisors today approved its part of the deal to lure Eli Broad's art museum to Downtown. After the vote, Broad called it a done deal despite the formality of another vote scheduled Monday by the Grand Avenue Authority. Talking about the vacant site south of Disney Hall, Broad told ZevWeb that "absolutely it’s coming to this site.” In the L.A. Times story, Broad was still being coy and left open the possibility of the museum being located in Santa Monica.
