Red Rest and Red Roost

One of the most frustrating challenges in SOHO history has been the fight to save these two rare ancestors of the classic California Beach Bungalow built in La Jolla Cove in 1894. The cottages have been listed on the National Register since the 1970s, but they have suffered greatly over the past 30 years. As the owners deliberately delay restoration and development plans, their shockingly blatant neglect has contributed to substantial deterioration.

The City of San Diego has been so-far ineffective in enforcing its Demolition by Neglect Ordinance, and SOHO is now forced to contemplate a return to legal action before the owners succeed in illegally destroying the buildings in order to proceed with an alternate plan that will adversely impact the Cove's historic setting and the ability of the La Jolla community to convey a key visual aspect of its unique past. The city attorney has recently committed to re-pursuing this issue.
