New York City, where Pittsburgh native Andy Warhol spent most of his life, became famous and died, will be home to a new museum of his work planned to open by 2017.

The 10,000-square-foot gallery is part of plans for a six-acre development project in the Lower East Side in Manhattan called Essex Crossing, which also will contain office buildings, retail space, a school, and a community center.

Pittsburgh's The Andy Warhol Museum, one of the Carnegie Museums, released a statement expressing excitement and hope for the “collaborative project.”
