UCLA Faculty Center Up for Consideration as California Historical Resource

Above is an extract from the website of the Office of Historical Preservation.* [Click to enlarge the image.] The Faculty Center is on the agenda of the Office's October 30 meeting for be added to the Register of Historical Resources. Being registered would not prevent the Center from being demolished at some future date but it would complicate the process. So UCLA is opposed to the registration. Blog readers will recall that originally the UCLA Grand Hotel was supposed to be built on the site of the Faculty Center but it was moved to the current location after an outcry from faculty. Recordings of the meetings eventually are posted, although with a considerable lag. The latest recording is for an April meeting but there was a later one in August which seems not to have appeared yet. (Well, it is historical preservation so no rush, one supposes.)
