Many of us live in a homes that were built 80 or more years ago when the greater Hancock Park area went through the boom of home building in the 1920s and 30s. In that relatively short period of time Los Angeles developed a rich portfolio of amazing architecture that we still appreciate, and inhabit, today.
As the Historic Preservation Architect for the City of Los Angeles, Lambert Giessinger is one of a corps of people in the Office of Historic Resources charged with keeping tabs on the preservation of the historic architecture of Los Angeles.
Giessenger will be speaking at the Wilshire Country Club on Saturday, June 21 from 3-5 pm on many aspects of preservation including: how to usher a historic property through a facelift; what types of properties get historic status; whether your home might qualify for Mills Act tax benefits; and more. Come with your questions about HPOZs and historic preservation.
Hosted by local realtor and Larchmont Buzz contributing writer Chase Campen, the event is open to the public but space is limited and reservations are required.
