To mark the fifth anniversary of Disney Hall, the Downtown News's Jon Regardie interviews some locals associated with the project. The piece is a round-up of quotes about Disney Hall; here is Gehry's quote on the forthcoming Grand project. "We designed the Grand Avenue buildings to go with [Disney Hall]. So far it's been well-received. They've been having trouble financing it. But it's trying to create a center that Eli Broad envisioned for Downtown, which we hope is correct. It's a nice vision." We hope it's correct, too. And for some perspective on construction delays, the paper reminds us that Disney Hall was announced in 1987 and didn't open till 16 years later. [Downtown News]
