"Art" Deathstar heading our way
From the Daily Beast: George Lucas Nixes Plans for Chicago Museum
Lucas's Museum of Narrative Art is heading back this way. Someday we may be able to examine the above masterpiece on Treasure Island.
John King thinks it's a great idea, but then he thinks Octavia Blvd. is a "triumph," this highrise is "exciting," and this joke of a building is "imposing and calm."
Aaron Peskin, who once litigated over the inadequate environmental review of the Treasure Island project, now thinks supporting the over-development of the island is all good and may help him when he runs for mayor, since he's always had an undeserved reputation as anti-development. Peskin actually has always been pro-development---as long as it doesn't get too close to his home in North Beach.
