DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – So far, construction activity at the Grand Avenue site of philanthropist Eli Broad’s $100 million art museum has been limited to a three-level parking structure. Now, it’s time to build the museum.    

The Dept. of Building and Safety issued building permits for the planned three-level structure designed by New York architect Diller, Scofidio + Renfro on March 16 and crews are already at work, building on top of the parking facility.

Broad Art Foundation spokeswoman Karen Denne said the project is on schedule, with completion expected in late 2013.

Those interested in watching the construction can see the site in real time via a live webcam feed streaming at broadartfoundation.org.
