Bulldozers made quick work of the former Coffee Table, the Silver Lake cafe that closed last year after a developer revived plans to build a condominium project on the property. A few chunks of the Rowena Avenue’s bright blue and yellow walls could be seen amid the piles of debris. The property where the Coffee Table and several other buildings once stood is now owned by the 15 Group, a Miami-based developer that last year approached residents with a proposal to build 45 condos instead of 64 units proposed under a previous land owner. However, the 15 Group as of late last year had not made a final decision about the size of the project. The Eastsider has contacted the 15 Group for an update on the project.
