If this seems like a weird idea to you, watch The Pruitt Igoe Myth. There's a lot of interesting history - the people who moved in didn't do so out of desperation, the projects were genuinely an upgrade from the overcrowded slums, at least at first. Then the wheels started coming off, for a whole list of complicated reasons.

I'm familiar - good intentions gone awry due to very bad design (and many other factors).

That said - seems like a waste of funds that could be used for............housing?

According to an article from November, they'd most likely start once they have permits - which is now..

Estimated cost on the permit is nearly $15.25M. Cedar St bought the building a few years ago for $19M.
Level Incorporated - the architect - posted updates on Instagram. Glad to see this is well on its way.

The museum has done private fundraising like any other museum and gotten state/federal cultural grants. I think Related is making a big donation that will put them over the top. They're not using housing funds for the museum.

My parents bought me a Michael Jackson hologram sticker from the Museum of Holography when I was a little boy back in the day. Good memories.

I second this. It's not even close (aesthetically speaking).

Agreed, though I like programming aspects of all the other projects a lot (a Silver Room space, Massimo Bottura soup kitchen, and housing for recently graduated artists, respectively).
