( robin ) the san francisco planning commission is ordering a property owner to rebuild an exact replica of a home they say he illegally demolished. kron 4's maureen kelly has reaction to this unprecidented decision. here's a photo that shows what the largent house looked like before it was torn down. the 1936 home was designed by premiere modernist architect richard neutra. the one bedroom home was sold in 2017 for 1-point-7 million last year. the owner got permission to expand it while still perserving the first floor. but instead the city says he razed most of the strucure...........and now this is all that's left. ross johnston applied for a retroactive demo permit and asked to build a home more than triple it's orginigal size. he's argued that the home's historic value was erased by a previous fire and past renovations.instead in a surprise move, the planning commission ordered him to
rebuild an exact replica of what was torn down.those in the neighborhood applaud the deciscion.if there was if it didn't go through the proper legislative to be taken down i think action is warranted here i think that's a great oh wonder if they're going to actually get them to do that that's the first report we're hearing but i find san francisco city government to be pretty weakrecently supervisor aaron peskin introduced legislation that would tighten city rules around illegal demolitions by increasing fines and ensure enforcement. the ceo of san francisco heritage helped craft that ordinance.i think it was an extraordinary step by the planning commission. it makes this case a cautionary tale for any future it would vies illegal demolition to consider that the city will enforce its rules and penalties will be in force for illegal demolition(maureen)the lawyer representing the homeowner has yet to respond to our request for comment on this unprecdented decision.
