This is apparently another example of a developer with no respect for architecture, history, or culture. There is almost no reason any Frank Lloyd Wright building should ever again be torn down. Demolishing this house would be doing violence to the work of one of America's great artists. We wouldn't stand for it if it were the destruction of a great artist's painting or sculpture. This developer proposes not development but a tragedy, and for what? Certainly not a better society and culture.

Pretty much the developers to do what he chooses with, he has a valid deed and a valid demo order. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it's illegal...., the law is on the developers side unfortunately..., and the city is wrong, once a permit is issued they cannot just says "ooops, sorry we made a mistake." That is their problem, fire the city union worker who wasn't doing their job...
