In December 2014, the Los Angeles Conservancy nominated the 1950s coffee shop Norms, on La Cienega Boulevard, as a Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM). One month later, Norms’ new owner filed for and received a building-demolition permit from the city of L.A., and a preservation battle was underway. While the City Council decides on the fate of the iconic Googie-style structure, the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission has unanimously voted in consideration of the nomination, which will temporarily protect Norms from demolition.
