Cathedral Mausoleum additions almost complete

 

 

 

 The new additions to the Hollywood Forever’s historic Cathedral Mausoleum are almost completed. There are some facings for cremation niches and other cosmetic fixes to be done.

 

 

 

Above, as it looked when construction began last summer.

 

Below, the following photos taken last weekend show the current progress.

    That is just so ugly. They didn’t really try to blend architecturally with the older building, they just built boxes to add. Talk about ruining the historic and aesthetic nature of the building.

    Hate to say it, but ick

    They had all that room in the back to build on, but instead they had to ruin the facade forever.

    I am hopeful that it will at least look better than the addition that was built near the Chapel, Columbarium & Colonnade. I understand the need to continue to generate income in order to keep H4E maintained, but it is sad to see the beautiful original architecture compromised–I wonder if there were several different sketches from many architects to consider or if the choices were very limited and the best from a small pool of proposals and sketches was chosen……..

    Hideous! I agree Mark, all that room in the back that could have been used instead. What a shame.

    It’s horrible!!!!!!!They should be ashamed of ruining such a beautiful building.
