They had a really bad leak(s) in the ceiling last winter as well. My mom actually got a cold after we went to see a movie there. I hope there are some plans to address that in the preservation effort, because roofs can be expensive!

I have been researching rail history materials for evidence of this building's past life as a PE station, but haven't found anything so far. About to make some calls and will keep people posted if interested. It definitely WAS the first sight for A Different Light Bookstore, which went on to open lo...

Update

Hi, this is Lauren here (the applicant for BBMT). Just wanted to let whomever is interested know that the CHC approved the nomination unanimously (sp?), and now it's on to PLUM! It was such an easy vote that they didn't even want to hear another presentation, which I take as a great sign. Hopefully ...

Question on repair - vinyl chair

Hi there, I've had this awesome swiveling vinyl chair from the 50's for the past 8 or 9 years, and in the last year the upholstery has started to split on the seat area. I can't afford to have this professionally repaired, but I really don't want to get rid of this wonderful chair. Does anyone have ...

Well, I would hope that it would deter developers from buying apartment buildings and tearing them down, because they can't make them into condos. As we know, this is a major trend right now all over the country. In many situations, it may not be worth the money to tear down rental units only to bui...

Venice Community Planning Meeting

This seems pretty important. Perhaps a member of ModCom should be present to represent preservation interests, not only in regards to Lincoln Place Apartments, but in Venice's general future as it continues to become gentrefied (sp?) and developed. Good news! There will be a Community Design Overlay...

Trader Vic's is not just a relic

I would like to add that I dined at Trader Vic's last week (for the first time), and it was without question one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in years. The decor was perfect, the drinks were amazing, and the food was actually really good. This preposed demolition seems really wasteful...

I find that dismissivness to be highly offensive. I was born and raised in Santa Monica, and I can barely even drive through it anymore because it breaks my heart to see the vestiges of our city's culture be torn down left and right. I remember when the 3rd Street Prominade had maybe 3 or 4 chains a...

Honestly, it sounds like the Kazarians have a lesson to learn here, and I don't feel a bit sorry for them. Maybe it will be a deterant against buying historic buildings with the intention of tearing them down. I'm so tired of "investors" who don't care about the community.

What's the status of Lincoln Place?

Does anyone know what is being done about resubmitting the nomination for historic landmark status? As I understand, the pervious report was "returned" after pressure from the AIMCO. So now even if the tenants win the next trial they'll still probably tear down the majority. Unless it's a ...
