I've been holding out for a City Museum kind of renovation (St. Louis, downtown, similar building) The plan, as laid out several years ago, was like that. As for the inaccuracy in the original article (closing date, demolition, mold) I defer to the learned comments of my neighbors and encourage you to CHECK YOUR FACTS. I'm pretty sure that's the first rule of journalism, but maybe I should check.
I would KILL for a individual to open up their yard like that in my neighborhood because we have zero sun and can't grow a thing, despite trying. Our kids went to MASE for a while and I can tell you that everything these kids are learning at this micro community far and away exceeds anything you can teach in a classroom.
