Live webcam tracks Broad museum construction
Anyone who has driven along Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles in the past month has surely noticed the construction cranes rising over the former parking lot near the corner of 2nd Street. The site is the future location of Eli Broad's new contemporary art museum -- simply titled the Broad -- that is expected to be completed in 2013.
The Broad Foundation has set up a live online camera feed so that people can track the progress of the museum. The feed also provides high-definition images of the construction site updated every 15 minutes.
Crews are currently working on the parking garage for the museum and construction on the museum building itself is scheduled to start in 2012. Architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro designed the museum.
The scheduled 2013 completion represents a bit of a delay from the previously announced late-2012 opening for the museum.
