George Lucas Abandons Plans To Build Museum In Chicago
CHICAGO (WRSP) —
Star Wars creator, George Lucas, announced Friday that he has abandoned plans to build his art museum in Chicago.
The legendary director blamed the delays over a lawsuit from a parks group opposed to any development along the city's lakefront.
Lucas said, he would take his museum to California, but did not name a specific location.
The "Friends of the Park", sthe group that sued construction says it's unfortunate that Lucas decided to take the museum to California, rather than pick a different site within Chicago.
The group says, choosing an alternative site would have been a "true win-win".
