The governmental agency that oversees building projects along Grand Avenue approved a plan today, that would allow developer Eli Broad to build an art museum in Downtown Los Angeles. The project, featuring a design by New York architectural film Diller Scofidio + Renfro, already had the approval of the Los Angeles City Council and County Board of Supervisors. Construction is expected to get underway in October. Eli Broad joins guest host David Lazarus to discuss the details of the plan.
