Looming large over Echo Park

A 100-foot high crane towering over the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Park Avenue has temporarily joined the Echo Park skyline, swinging construction materials over the site of the $10 million Parkview Living senior apartments.  The nearly block-long, 75-unit retirement complex is scheduled to be completed by May of next year, said Greg Campbell, head of the Foursquare Foundation, an affiliate of Angelus Temple, that developed the complex.  While the corner of Glendale and Park is busy with construction activity, two blocks away at Echo Park and Park avenues, a nearly century-old Craftsman-apartment house moved from the Parkview Living site stands silently on wood blocks awaiting a permanent home. So far, Campbell said, no takers have emerged for the Craftsman building.

  1. I have a low income friend who is a senior who would love to be able to live there. Does anyone know who would she contact or how does she go about putting her name in for a unit? She lives in an over priced apt. in Silver Lake now and lives hand to mouth. Terrible.
