The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles has nominated the Hollywood Reporter Building on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood for Historic Cultural Monument status. The society is asking that the public attend the Cultural Heritage Commission on Thursday, August 17, at L.A. City Hall and voice your support.
The commission will take up the nomination on Thursday right after the lunch break at 1 p.m.
If you worked at 6715 Sunset Boulevard while the building housed the Hollywood Reporter or L.A. Weekly, or know someone who does, the society encourages you to come IN PERSON to speak or at least fill out a card to support making this building a registered Los Angeles landmark.
The Art Deco Society and Hollywood Heritage believe that the building has architectural and cultural significance and should be preserved. Public support is very important.
What you can do to participate:
Share your story of important news that was reported while you worked in the building or memories of original historic features that were in the interior of the building. Who were the famous people who came to your office? Express your love of the building and the importance of these publications to you and your industry and your personal career.
