Progress on Morgan Pavilion

In one of the other discussion threads someone mentioned that the Morgan Pavilion @ Kentucky Horse Park is not finished yet.  Last I’d heard they had the ribbon cutting ceremony during the Bluegrass show and even though it wasn’t complete at that time, everything was still on track to have it ready by WEG.  I never heard anything different after that, so I assumed things went on as planned.  Does anyone know what the current status is and why they were not able to meet this goal?

    The outside of the building is finished. No landscaping nor is the inside even close to being finished. I have no idea why the building is not finished. What a shame to miss the oppertunity to complete the building for the WEG 2010, but for what ever reason…it’s an empty shell…beautiful, but empty.

    Financing fell through…or was delayed. Same story as with every other project in the world since 2008 (okay, slight exaggeration, but doesn’t it seem that way?)

    Last I heard, they were aiming toward completion by January.

    Yes, it’s very sad that it was not finished. I was so looking forward to it, and I know it would have been wonderful for guests of the WEG to see. I do understand the financing fell through just like everything else….BUT, this project was not started 5 years ago and then all of a sudden stopped in the recession, ground breaking was just last year, in 2009, they should have known then if they could finish it or not.

    Thank you for posting that article. There was more info there than I’ve had all along about the status of the building. It’s good to know there are a number of ways people can pitch in financially on a smaller level. I encourage people to contribute what they can, even if it’s not much. Imagine the feeling of being able to play a part of such an enduring piece of Morgan history.
