It’s a sad day for preservationists, as the red brick traditional at 4901 Live Oak that was once the center of a fierce neighborhood zoning debate comes down. We knew this day was coming, but we still felt unprepared for the carnage we witnessed.
This is one of those situations where we have to look at the lesser of two evils: Would it not have been better for the neighborhood that this old, stately home with so much history be transformed into a wedding venue than being razed for another generic multi-family development?
We’ve reached out to Preservation Dallas for comment. More to come.
