Action Alert Update: Moore House Demolished

This pains me deeply. I am so tired of seeing these demolitions that make way for giant soul-less stucco boxes. And I am tired of these style-less stucco boxes where ever they are built.

ACTION ALERT UPDATE:
Moore House Demolished

Despite several years of intensive advocacy and significant public outcry, the Moore House (Lloyd Wright, 1959) in Palos Verdes Estates (PVE) was demolished on Wednesday, April 25.

The demolition occurred less than a day after the PVE City Council denied the Los Angeles Conservancy's appeal of the City's earlier decision to allow the home's demolition.

The Moore House was a unique, irreplaceable, and extraordinarily significant modernist residence, designed by Lloyd Wright, renowned architect and son of Frank Lloyd Wright.

The environmental impact report (EIR) for the replacement project didn't evaluate a single sincere preservation alternative that would have maintained the Moore House's eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and the California Register of Historical Resources.

 

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is a state law that requires the evaluation of a range of alternatives. It also requires that those alternatives be analyzed with the public's interest in mind, not the property owner's -- even for a private residence. 

 

When the EIR for this project failed to provide a reasonable preservation alternative, the Conservancy commissioned our own. It provided for a sensitive addition to the Moore House -- a standard approach to increasing the size of an existing home. We met with the owner to present this alternative, yet it was disregarded by both the owner and the City.

With no protections in place for its historic resources, the City of Palos Verdes Estates can continue to erase its architectural heritage, one demolition at a time. If you live in PVE, please let your elected officials know that you care about your city's tangible history and want it preserved for future generations.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who submitted letters of support on this issue, and for the people who attended the City Council meeting Tuesday night. Your voice will continue to be heard as we work to preserve other historic places throughout Greater Los Angeles.

Were You Social Last Sundae?

The Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society hosted its annual Ice Cream Social at the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock Sunday, August 1. Admission was free, there was music, a raffle, dollar-a-dip ice cream and baked goods for sale.

Ice Cream Social period costumes

It was a fun event for all ages and they were all there from newborns to, well, much older people. The Eagle Rock High School Key Club staffed the ice cream counter and otherwise helped at the event. The Kiwanis Club, which is the service organization which sponsors the Key Club, was there in force as well. I recognized a few families who had bought one of my listings in the past year, so it’s good to see that new residents are finding their way to community events. One of the great joys about living in Eagle Rock is that the longtime residents are welcoming to new people and want to help them find their way into service groups and community events.

Ice Cream Social Historical Society

I was happy to see the Eagle Rock Latin Jazz Band perform. It was my first experience with the group and I was impressed to see that fully half the band is female. In addition, they have a very talented female singer. Eric Warren, President of the Eagle Rock Historical Society, told me that the group is much larger this year because one of the requirements of the International Baccalaureate program at Eagle Rock High school is an arts component. It’s wonderful to see how supportive the community is of our young people and their emerging talents.
