Two Mid Century Modern examples from Los Angeles provide an example. With the potential for historic tax credits, the only limits are our imagination and the political will to support a Sense of Place that sets us above. Joe Edwards did this successfully with the Moonrise Hotel. Should we allow the demolition of the DeVille, which could be swankier than when it was built? How can we look at other cities, and even locally with what the Roberts Brothers did (on the same street) with the former Bel Air, and allow the DeVille to suffer such an unacceptable fate? A parking lot or what’s show below?
