  • A nomination to have  the former Metropolitan Water District headquarters declared a historic landmark was rejected by a divided Cultural Heritage Commission. Members who voted to reject the nomination of the William Pereira-designed complex east of Echo Park  said alterations and additions had destroyed the building’s architectural significance. “What once was a beautiful Modernist building … I don’t foresee someone coming and bringing it to back to what was,” said commissioner Jeremy Irvine. The decision now allows the property owner to demolish the complex to make way for new development.   Curbed L.A.
