Echo Park — The scene of one of Echo Park’s most notorious crimes – the deadly 2010 holdup of The Higher Path medical marijuana dispensary – is now being offered up for rent at more than $3,400 a month, according to LoopNet.
Two men were convicted of fatally shooting a 27-year-old employee, Matthew Butcher, son of an L.A. union leader, and seriously wounding a security guard when they robbed the Higher Path on Sunset Boulevard near Innes Avenue. The purple-and-orange exterior of the nearly 1,000-square-foot building remains virtually the same as when it served as a pot shop. But the listing now proposed different kinds of uses:
The property boosts wonderful street presence with parking and storefront windows. The space currently has an open floor plan with small kitchenette and full bathroom. This property is perfect for any retailer, possible quick service restaurant or coffee house.
