Pay Attention to the Big Picture

Author: Scott Goodman • Scenic West Property Management

HighsmithI read recently that the Fox and Bruin theaters in Westwood Village were in danger of closure.  Fortunately, Regency Theaters stepped in to avoid what might have been a conversion to retail space or an outright demolition.  I can just picture the local residents and architectural preservationists fighting tooth and nail had this matter not been concluded as it was.  Having the benefits of a strong community where people can spend their free time in a place like Westwood Village should not to be taken lightly.  I grew up in Westwood and watched many  movies in those two theaters. Had we lost the Fox and Bruin theaters to the laws of highest and best use, we would have lost yet another piece of our history, as well as a reminder of why we chose to live in West Los Angeles.  It is easy to get caught up in the day to day of property management.   The property you own or manage may be “your world” but do not forget that it was the greater community which lured your customers (i.e. tenants) to live in your building in the first place.
