Honoring our industrial roots — Television City and entertainment Cities are shaped by many forces, not the least of which are the vocations of its residents at key points in history. Just as our homes and neighborhoods reflect our ways of living in a place, our work environments also tell stories. Los Angeles was primarily

agricultural in the first years of its existence. Remnants of those eras are still present in rare farmhouses and outbuildings in some parts of the city. In addition to agriculture (and the somewhat related production of oil), two industries built the city. The first

was the motion picture / entertainment industry, which came to Los Angeles in 1910. After World War I, the aviation industry made its mark. SurveyLA has acknowledged these as pivotal forces in shaping the city’s development. The stories of these work environments

are reflected in the built environment: studio complexes, air fields, laboratories, film processing plants, warehouses, recording facilities, office buildings and retail spaces. Rancho La Brea One of these sites has been in the news recently, touted as a major “development opportunity.” Television City on Beverly Blvd. was built in 1961, as the major West Coast operational facility for CBS Broadcasting. It is built on land with an even longer history: part of the Rancho LaBrea portion of the Gilmore McAvoy on family’s holdings. Gilmore, Preservation by of Gilmore Oil Christy and Farmers Market fame, McAvoy had entertainment and recreation venues (a race track, baseball field, etc.) on the land before selling it to CBS in 1950. More land was added to the complex in 1958 as production continued to grow. William Pereira The purpose-built modern corporate structure was the brainchild of William Pereira, known for his work in master planning for universities (USC, UC Irvine, and others) and cities. Pereira had strong ties to the Hancock Park / Wilshire area. The architect lived on Rossmore Ave.; his offices were in the Miracle Mile. His successor firm Johnson Fain is still renowned in Los Angeles architecture. Pereira came to Los Angeles

from Chicago in the 1930s, started a partnership with Charles Luckman, and was a professor at USC. His notable works included Television City, the original buildings at LACMA on Wilshire, and the Disneyland Hotel, as well as dozens of corporate office structures throughout the city. He participated in the expansion of LAX in the 1960s and designed San Francisco’s Transamerica Tower. His association with the Chandler family gave us an addition to the Times-Mirror Square complex downtown; his knowledge and interest in the entertainment industry and friendship with William Paley led to additions to Columbia Square in Hollywood and then to Television City. The stark and simple modern complex on Beverly Blvd. is noted for its black-and-white theme (a nod to TV technology of the era) with accents of red. That black-and-white scheme served internally to differentiate areas of permanence and those that could be expanded. Iconic TV There were originally four soundstages, with more added in later decades. Those soundstages were the homes of nowiconic productions that defined their eras: game shows like “The Price is Right,” soap operas, sitcoms (“All in the Family”) and variety (Carol (Please turn to page 3)

Windsor Square resident and tattoo artist Katherine von Drachenberg, otherwise known as Kat Von D, owner of High Voltage Tattoo and Kat Von D Beauty, was honored by the Peggy Albrecht Friendly House with the Shining Star award at a luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last month. The award is for philanthropic endeavors, both volunteering and donations from the proceeds of beauty products she has created. In 2007, Kat Von D set the Guinness World Record for doing the most tattoos in 24 hours, do-

nating all proceeds to charity. Van Nuys house Kat Von D moved to the neighborhood late last year after she purchased the “Van Nuys house” at 4th St. and Lorraine Blvd. for $6.5 million, according to the “Los Angeles Times.” The three-story Victorian house, built in 1890 on 6th St. (at the site that now is the Rampart Division police station), was moved in 1914 to the then-new subdivision of Windsor Square. Its original owner was San (Please turn to page 6)

TELEVISION CITY has been touted as a major development opTom Gardner Collection/L.A. Conservancy archives portunity.

(Continued from page 2) Burnett and Red Skelton). The “Los Angeles Times” recently quoted a producer as saying that Television City “represents a pinnacle of high production standards in television . . . The site ought to be declared a national historic landmark because of the number of legendary programs that emanated from (it) . . . ” (“Los Angeles Times,” Oct. 7, 2017). What next? What is next for this important and iconic facility, once on the cutting edge of technological innovation? Will it join the Theme Building at LAX, Stuart Pharmaceuticals in Pasadena, Bullocks Pasadena, John Lautner’s Silvertop residence and others of its era as a preservation success story? Will it follow the lead of Para-

mount, Fox, and other studio complexes to master plan for integrating historic resources with new facilities? The current steward, CBS, has a decision to make as it contemplates future development. Sell to the highest bidder, or encourage a project that preserves a significant piece of Los Angeles history and architecture for future generations? The building still has work to do, and plenty of creativity left to foster. One of our most creative industries needs to put those skills to work to preserve its own legacy. Christy Johnson McAvoy, a former president both of the Los Angeles Conservancy and the California Preservation Foundation, as well as an Advisor to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, founded Historic Resources Group in Hollywood.

Agent co-writes series on city’s best architects By Suzan Filipek When Bret Parsons learned “one of the best homes in Hancock Park” was for sale for $595,000, he wrote to the real estate agent. When she phoned him, she was probably surprised when his mother answered, saying, “He’s in school right now… high school.” “They had a big laugh,” Parsons said last month while taking a break from his work on a 12-volume series, “Master Architects of Southern California 1920-1940.” He is still taken with beautiful homes, today as a Realtor with the Coldwell Banker Beverly Hills North Office, the highest-grossing residential real estate office in the U.S., and as director of the architectural division. With co-authors architect Marc Appleton and architectural historian Steve Vaught, he is working on the second book in the series, featuring Roland Coate, expected to be published early next year. A onetime home of Howard Hughes on Muirfield Rd. is among Coate’s works. “After first renting, Hughes ultimately purchased the house for $135,000… and it would remain his principal California residence between 1928 and 1942,” according to text from the upcoming book. To follow Coate in the series is Wallace Neff — architect of The Ralph J. Chandler Home on Rossmore. Inspired by the Garden Pavilion of Versailles and Petit Trianon, the 8,000-square-foot estate cur(Please turn to page 5)

Architect Paul Williams will follow Neff. Williams was designer of the building renovation that became the nowgone Perino’s Restaurant on Wilshire and Norton. Eight more architects who made their mark in the early 20th century will be portrayed in the subsequent volumes. Parsons and his co-authors seek to document the “great old estates of Los Angeles before bulldozers get them,” he said.

There’s no shortage of real estate to choose from. Southern California, from Santa Barbara to San Diego, including Palm Springs, is the greatest home building region in the world, he says. He credits the topography, climate, wealth and the formidable creative talent found here. “We’re unstoppable… It’s like a perfect storm.” While he appreciates wellconstructed new homes, he’s disappointed with the boxy, “bento-box” style homes popping up all over town. “They’re popular because they’re cheap to build,” and buyers like them “because they’re new.” They come rife with problems, he says, including few (Please turn to page 10)

Amazing Hancock Park “What’s interesting about Hancock Park is it’s always been half the price of Beverly Hills.” That’s what’s preserved it, he says. While developers will tear down homes in pricier neighborhoods and build

new “soulless” structures, the profit here was more in renovation and restoration. “Original houses perfectly renovated will sell in two seconds for top dollar.” And, of course, the areas’ Historic Preservation Overlay Zones helped retain the neighborhoods, while bucolic streets on the Westside and elsewhere are gone, Parsons laments. “This area makes us remember a happier, more graceful, gentle time. I think people

long for that.” The other amazing thing about Hancock Park is every top architect in Southern California worked here between 1915 to 1941. Movie studio craftsmen got involved — in between movie work — adding to the fine craftsmanship, creativity and character of the homes. Parsons lives in Windsor Village in a home designed in 1941 by architect Edith Northman, “a female in very much a man’s world.” Gordon B. Kaufmann Gordon B. Kaufmann, who designed Greystone Mansion, the Los Angeles Times Art Deco building and Hoover Dam, is the first in the Master Architects series. The coffee table-size book was published last year by Tailwater Press and Angel City Press. The cover features a vintage photo of the reflecting pool at the Mediterranean-style home at Muirfield Rd. and Sixth St. The estate on a double lot was sold two years ago for a record $16 million by Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith to Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos and Nicole Avant, former Ambassador to the Bahamas. Named after the original owners, Isador and Leila Eisner, the 15,110 square foot house is on a 1.55-acre parcel. Designed by Kaufmann in 1925, the house features a series of courtyards. “If the house were built with a garden in front,” Kaufmann said in an article at the time, “neither garden nor house would be protected from the stares of the curious.” (Please turn to page 14)

Flourishing Getty Center forest, 20 years on, among most beautiful David Geffen, a leading cultural philanthropist, donated $150 million to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in early October, on the same day that the New York Philharmonic, to which Geffen had donated $100 million, announced it was scaling back a $500 million

— in rising to the pinnacles of art, beauty, and elegant functionality — leaps far beyond any cultural institutions in New York. (Not that building the Getty Center didn’t take money, and plenty of it.) The American Society of Landscape Architects, which just concluded its annual conference here in Los Angeles, has rewarded the Getty Center and its landscape architecture firm, OLIN, its annual Landmark Award, given to works of landscape architecture 15 to 50 odd years old. If you haven’t been to visit the Home Getty Center in a while, even Ground years, make the by trip. It is not Paula Panich only one of Los Angeles’s great cultural institutions; it now has taken its place as one of the most distinctive and beautiful garden settings in the world. Plus — you must see how the trees have grown in. Trees can disappear in the mind’s eye as green generalities . . . until a particular tree dies or a limb crashes down to crunch your Prius — but the maturing urban forest of the Getty Center is breathtaking, and it

deserves your close scrutiny and resulting refreshment. Pacific Palisades’ landscape architect Kelly Comras has written an enlightening article about the Getty Center and its award in the October issue of “Landscape Architecture Magazine.” Ten thousand evergreen native oaks, hundreds of pine trees, and dozens of Deodor and Lebanon cedars were planted on the 110 acres of the main Getty campus; the whole site occupies 700 acres of open space within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Added to these trees, Comras writes, are “scores of deciduous native sycamore, crepe myrtle, London plane trees as well as tens of thousands of ground cover plants. Twenty years later, the trees form a canopy that embraces the landscape architects’ intention for a seamless transition from designed landscape to wild chaparral.” As a Chinese Zen Buddhist patriarch of the sixth century (Please turn to page 13)

estate agent when Parsons was in high school. Besides $250,000 worth of Indian teak wood, the English-style “home has a fantastic floor plan. It’s on the golf course on a dead end.” “That’s the best thing about L.A. because unless you know where to go or take a wrong turn you would never discover some of these homes.” Parsons has taken many turns since he came to Los Angeles after he graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in business and a minor in advertising. “The moment I graduated college I was here.” He looked up the nice real estate lady he wrote to, and took up her offer to show him homes when he came to town. He drove past the iconic columns at Fremont Place, and he talked his way past the guard saying he was working on a school project for UCLA. It wasn’t altogether a lie, as he was working on post-graduate work on architecture and accounting. “I was in heaven,” he said of the enclave’s period-revival homes mostly built in the 1920s and 1930s. He attributes his passion to his grandparents; both lived in beautiful homes, and one was a contractor who took him to job sites during the summer. His mother was a county planning commissioner, and his dad, owner of a John Deere tractor dealership, was www.tarkettna.com/breathe a bottom-line type of guy, and, while usually mild mannered, he was anything but when he told his son to get a job.

It was the push that Parsons needed, and, after six months of house cruising, he spent the next decade as marketing director at the Pacific Design Center, which he parlayed into becoming a mortgage broker. He did very well, so well he took two years off to write a book on architect Gerard Colcord in 2008. With the book came notoriety, and thinking he was a Realtor, people asked him to sell their homes, which led to

After our Revolutionary victory over the British, its observance became general in the former colonies, until 1863, when President Lincoln “recommended” that it be observed throughout the United States on the last Thursday in November.
