Afeni Shakur died last year.
Jim Burnett bought the center for $600,000, according to Rolling Stone. The magazine reported last year that he intended to redevelop it to include office suits, an indoor play center called Jumps R Us and a water park.
"It works in perfect conjunction with what Afeni was doing with the kids," Burnett told Rolling Stone. "We're not going to allow the Shakur name to die."
The monument is expected to be unveiled in September, around the 21st anniversary of Shakur’s shooting death in Las Vegas, Binns said.
