The overview satellite on Google Maps is from October 2013. Street view would depend when and where the shot was taken. Most of downtown is from February 2017.

That makes sense. I wouldn't have noticed except for the fact that sooooo much has been built since 10/13. It really illustrates how fast DTLA is transforming.

George Lucas Museum Gets Approval From Los Angeles City Council

By Covey E. Son
June 27, 2017

LOS ANGELES— The City Council here formally endorsed a plan to allow “Star Wars” creator George Lucas to build his long-planned art museum, the expected finale to a saga that stretched from Chicago to San Francisco.

The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday morning to green light the $1.2 billion Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in a neighborhood near his alma mater, the University of Southern California.

Mr. Lucas and his wife, Mellody Hobson, appeared in person at City Hall Tuesday to celebrate the moment—and endure a universe of “Star Wars” puns.

“A long time ago in a city not so far away, two people had a dream for a museum, and we said from the beginning that the force was very strong here in Los Angeles,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said at a news conference after the vote.

The couple will also donate over 20,000 pieces of art and film memorabilia, said Don Bacigalupi, the museum’s president.

“We’ve come here to join the other museums in Los Angeles, to be a partner in making Los Angeles a museum city,” Mr. Lucas said. “The goal of the museum is to…inspire people to think outside the box, to imagine whatever you want to imagine.”

Los Angeles’s museum scene has already been rapidly expanding from a foundation that includes world-renowned institutions like the Getty and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Broad opened in downtown in 2015, featuring the vast collection of Eli Broad, and a slate of new museums are on the horizon or recently opened.

Construction of the Lucas museum will begin early 2018 and is expected to open in 2021, Mr. Bacigalupi said.
Quote:
“Who knew it’d be so hard to give away a museum?” Hobson said, half-joking. “Despite this long journey, the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art was always meant to be in Los Angeles.”

Hobson told the council she grew up in Chicago, scheming about the day she’d be successful enough to create a cultural space for everyone, a space “where I belonged.” Now the chairwoman of the board of directors of DreamWorks Animation, she’s embedded in LA, which she said is experiencing a renaissance.
