Could it be that we'll actually see this thing happen? The City Council seems to think so after unanimously voting to approve changes to their agreement with the LeMay Museum folks. A press release sent out details the basic goals and that millions have been chopped off the initial costs. What will we see? From the press release:
The first stage will include a 120,000 square foot Collector Car Center, the Administration and Education Center and the Show Field. This major facility will provide storage for the LeMay Collection, display galleries, club houses for members, restoration facilities and private storage opportunities for collectors. The second stage of construction will include the main Pavilion and the retail and entertainment facilities.
Fund raising continues toward the first-stage goal of $79 million and total $143 million. We should see construction start on phase 1 in April of next year. Get excited Tacoma 'cause this will be a great additional attraction that people will come from all over the world to witness.
