LOS ANGELES-The preservation-minded Los Angeles Conservancy and two restored LA buildings have each won a National Preservation Award, one of the highest such honors bestowed in the United States.

The nonprofit Conservancy was cited for the key roles it played in saving several local historic buildings, some of which had once faced the wrecking ball.

The second award went to Southwestern University School of Law, which purchased the closed Bullock’s Wilshire Building on the Miracle Mile and renovated the art-deco project for use as a new campus and administrative facility.

The third award went to American Cinematheque, a nonprofit group dedicated to film preservation. The group purchased Hollywood’s fabled Egyptian Theatre, which had been closed and badly damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake, and reopened it after a massive renovation and reinforcement project.
