always good news.Lovers of mod rejoice! In a guardedly optimistic way... At today's Mississippi Department of Archives and History Board of Trustees meeting, the staff of the Historic Preservation Division recommended that the Sun-n-Sand Motor Hotel be listed as a Mississippi Landmark. The MDAH Board of Trustees voted 6-1 to adopt the staff's recommendation. The board then adopted a resolution granting the State of Mississippi permission to demolish the building after June 1, 2020. The resolution encouraged the State of Mississippi "to determine if there are qualified real estate developers who would be willing to redevelop said property into a facility that is commercially viable and that would be an asset to the capitol complex". We will take it! Thank you MDAH for giving the many advocates who want to see the Sun-n-Sand repurposed a window of opportunity to make our case. ... See MoreSee Less

always good news.

ANOTHER DEMOLITION UNDERWAY.
1000 PONCE DE LEON. A 1964 "NEW FORMALIST-STYLE" ARCHITECTURE. BEST EXAMPLE IN CORAL GABLES.

NOT ONLY IS DEMOLITION BAD FOR PRESERVATION, DEMOLITION IS BAD FOR ENVIRONMENT. According to a study by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the benefits of re-using and renovating buildings outweigh the benefits of constructing new energy-efficient structures. To mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, this study found that "building re-use can avoid unnecessary carbon outlays and help communities achieve their near-term reduction goals." Not to mention it contributes to landfills, the concrete not being recycled, and running out of sand used for glass and concrete production.
