One such example recently was reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer, in part, as follows: 

 

“What’s happening at the Good Shepherd Community Church in West Philadelphia offers an instructive twist on that narrative (when another distinctive work of architecture ends up on the garbage heap) ... Earlier this year, David Landskroner, founder of Hightop Real Estate and Development, acquired Good Shepherd as a teardown ... Preservation Alliance met with Landskroner to tout the benefits of keeping the church and converting it to apartments. The University City Historical Society joined the offensive … Voilà ! Landskroner accepted the plan. Preservationists declared victory. The local neighborhood group, Garden Court Community Association, gave the project its blessing … Compromises are never perfect, and there are many reasons to applaud this one.”
