Is Eli Broad's Beverly Hills art museum in trouble?

The much anticipated art museum in Beverly Hills from philanthropist Eli Broad appears to be in trouble, according to the Architects' Newspaper. There is talk that the museum -- set to be built at one of L.A.'s great crossroads -- might get a new location. Details:

Eli Broad’s effort to build a new museum on the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards in Beverly Hills is looking all but dead. Sources close to the project have told AN that the billionaire art collector is looking elsewhere, while the Broad Art Foundation -- asked to submit specific plans to the Beverly Hills Planning Division for an upcoming environmental impact review -- has not communicated with the department since late April.
