Echo Park hillside courtyard moves closer to landmark status

The City’s Council’s Planning & Land Use Committee on Tuesday agreed to declare a Sunset Boulevard courtyard apartment complex a historic landmark. The historic-cultural monument nomination of the Lento Brick Court, which steps up a  hillside in the 1200 block of Sunset Boulevard,  must now be reviewed and voted upon by the full  City Council . The 1928 complex built by an Italian immigrant and hat maker was nominated by the Echo Park Historical Society (The Eastsider is a board member)  as a “rare example of a mixed use complex of commercial store fronts and a residential hillside bungalow court.”
