The former Metropolitan Water District headquarters on Sunset Boulevard in Victor Heights is empty on the inside but has become a seven-story canvas for taggers on the outside. The property, which is part of the Holly Hill Community Church campus, is up for sale at an asking price of $8.5 million. Earlier this month, one of the listing agents told The Eastsider that the 110,000-square-foot building had been in escrow but would not disclose the name of a buyer or possible use. The sales materials tout the building, located about halfway between Echo Park and downtown, as a potential school, live-work lofts or corporate headquarters. The flyer also notes that “corporate signage” is available at the top of the building. The taggers have apparently taken advantage of the offer.
