Challenge #3: Bye Bye, Good Stewards
Generally, Modern places have two fan bases, one growing and another on the decline. People around age 40 and under -- especially those in their 20s -- tend to really "get" these places and love what they represent, the design aesthetic and their role in popular culture.
So do many of the long-time owners and occupants -- whether a homeowner or corporate entity -- who have been faithful stewards and doing the right thing for years, caring for these houses or office buildings despite their unique peculiarities and quirks.
Unfortunately, many of these stewards are now moving on, passing away and leaving these places at risk and vulnerable without a good succession plan in place. It can be quite difficult to find the right person to hand these places off to and ensure future preservation.
