From Sandra Endo:

The iconic Norms diner on La Cienega is saved. City lawmakers voted to approve an application to make it a historical landmark after its new owners wanted to demolish it.

The LA Conservancy and the Cultural Heritage Commission wanted to preserve its 1956 Googie style architecture designed by Louis Armet and Eldon Davis so they submitted an application to save the building in March.

Longtime customers said they would be sad if it had to go.

"I come here everyday for breakfast and it's a place that's comfortable, the staff is great, it's a staple," said diner Josh Taylor.
