Preserving Santa Monica – Conservancy Awards Showcase History

In Santa Monica’s current climate of development and vertical expansion, preservation of the city’s more historic structures is alive and well. Santa Monica Conservancy announced their annual award winners this week with several standout buildings taking home the prize.

“To us they’re a way of both rewarding and recognizing people who we consider are doing the right thing,” Conservancy President Carol Lemlein told The Mirror.

“This year’s winners represented a wide variety of projects reflecting stewardship, restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse in both commercial and residential properties,” Lemlein explained.
