Beverly Hills has recently suffered three big architectural losses--John Lautner's Shusett House, Sidney Eisenshtat’s Friars Club, and (soon) Robert Derrah’s Durant Drive apartments--and the Architect's Newspaper wonders why the city is so bad at preservation: "local regulations regarding historic resources are limited to the Beverly Hills Architectural Commission, which has the power to maintain a list of historic landmarks, but holds no authority over saving those properties." The Commission hasn't listed a property since the zoning code was established in 1975. On the bright side, BH is finally working on allowing Mills Act tax incentives. [A/N]
