SAN DIEGO -- A compromise is in the works over a home in Coronado that was facing demolition.
The house located on Glorietta Street was built by master architect Homer Delawie in the 1960s and is considered to be historically significant.
Delawie, a renowned leader in modernist architecture, designed some of San Diego's most recognizable sites, including the Bea Evenson Fountain at Balboa Park and the clock tower in downtown San Diego.
Mark Gosselin bought the home last April for $1.7 million and was planning to tear it down to build a larger one. He disputes the home's historical significance.
"He did some notable residential work. This is not one of them. It's not even mentioned in his book and so forth. It wasn't one of his notable works," Gosselin said during a Coronado City Council meeting last month.
Council members voted to withhold issuing a demolition permit in a closed session.
