Art Deco-Los Angeles Conservancy
Shame about the recession for there are gems sitting in amongst the downtown area of LA awaiting a developer wanting to create amazing hotels or loft apartments. Prime example of renovated DECO properties sitting vacant with quite often the Ground Floor being used as Jewelers.LA is one of those places where you have to really look up or behind and then you find a real jewel!
LA Conservancy are fighting for these gems and supporting volunteer based tours. So worth doing if in the neighbourhood; just to point them out to you even if the info is limited. Any developers out there with an eye for the next project across the pond; take a look.
