Property owners have less and less say over what they can actually do with THEIR own land. I wonder how much tax this foundation has paid year after year after year?

I wish the article said why the foundation who owns the house now wants to demolish it.

Another abuse of the U.S. Constitution, courtesy of another egomaniacal, do-gooder sitting on some useless city council.

Actually, while we all have a rights as property owners, those rights are, and have never been absolute. Think of them as sticks in a bundle, like the right to exclude others from your land, the right to protect your land... yada yada yada. Basically, those rights shift and fall out of the bundle of rights depending on the situation. The right to do whatever you want with YOUR land is a misconception, and has never been true. Theres a point upon which your land becomes of greater importance to the society around it... hence historical neighborhoods and other historical designations. The importance to society to preserve its history far outweighs the situation of creating an empty lot for people to throw their trash in.
