Apparently the California Auto Museum is working on plans to expand into a new, larger building, combined with a Natural History Museum. I found a brief article on the plan in the Business Journal from a couple months ago that says they're developing the plan but don't have the funding yet--it would take about $40 million. I have noticed a lot of toxic remediation going on at the Front Street site next to the CAM over the past year--it used to be an illumination gas plant and electric powerplant for the company that became PG&E, pretty nasty stuff. That will be the new parking area, completely capped off, and the CAM/Natural History Museum will be a taller building that takes up the current CAM property site including the existing parking lot. Could be cool if they can find the funds--and give a nice impetus to development of the Docks waterfront area. It would also give people walking along the existing "Riverwalk" promenade, that currently extends to R Street, something to walk to, and provide a southernmost site for a "museum mile" that runs north to the Crocker, Old Sacramento, the Railroad Museum, Sacramento Museum, and future RTM and Powerhouse Science Center.
