    Heavy equipment is carving out an underground garage at the Highland Park home of Harlan Crow. Neighbors wonder if it’s part of a plan to open his home museum to more people. Crow says it will give his kids a place to play on a rainy day.

    Real estate investor Harlan Crow is trying to ease concerns of his neighbors in the wealthy Dallas enclave of Highland Park about construction of a 77-space underground garage on his estate.

    Crow says the $5.1 million project is intended for guests to a large library at his family's home and for those attending other functions at his estate like political fundraisers who would have to park on the streets.

    Neighbors tell The Dallas Morning News they worry about buses and tour groups if he turns the place into museum.

    His 8-acre estate is zoned as a single-family dwelling. Two years ago the 65-year-old CEO of Crow Holdings tried to get "historical collection" added to the zoning definition for his home, then dropped the proposal amid similar opposition from neighbors.
