The former Echo Park gas station that was turned into an unofficial street art gallery was bulldozed this week. The bulldozer and wrecking crew arrived on Tuesday and the station at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Portia Street had been scraped to the ground by Thursday. What’s going to replace the former Meghna station and street art free-for-all? A Starbucks Drive-Thru or more cement-floored loft-condos? Nope. Just another gas station and convenience store that will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., according to building permit info.
