The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has revealed that the Los Angeles Public Works Committee has approved the air space vacation that will allow the Peter Zumthor-designed building for the museum's permanent collection to span Wilshire Boulevard.

The news comes about six months after the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved certification of the project's final environmental impact report. The air-space approval was conveyed in a November 6 email from LACMA CEO Michael Govan, who wrote:

Now, we have more good news. Today the City of Los Angeles Public Works Committee approved the air space vacation on Wilshire Boulevard to allow the new building to span the street and result in more open and accessible galleries as well as the addition of 3.5 acres of new open park space. The Committee will refer its positive action to the full City Council on December 3 at 10 am (Council Chambers). This important step will allow us to move forward with our project.
