Here’s a beautiful image of the mid-century modern Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
New owners of the hotel want to demolish it according to Los Angeles Times blog.
Developers want to build a mini-city on the site, a 50 story building filled with the usual chain stores and expensive condos.
This has to be one of the most amazing hotels in the country. Today the Los Angeles City Council will help to decide the hotel’s fate, hoping to save the hotel by making it a historic landmark. The preservationists groups are advocating for saving the hotel. Today the National Trust for Historic Preservation put the hotel on it’s short list of places the United States that need to be preserved.
Please dear developers, don’t demolish the hotel. As a frequent guest there, it’s got to be one of the best designed mid-century buildings on the planet.by
