ECHO PARK — At first glance it looks like this pint-sized, 440-square-foot bungalow at the corner of Lake Shore Avenue and Grafton Street is going to get torn down. But it isn’t. Instead, the one-bedroom house will be get a second story as part of a large expansion, according to the Building & Safety Department. When it’s done, the total size of the home, which was built in 1922, will grow by nearly 1,800 square-feet and add an enclosed carport.
While the bungalow is not getting torn down, you may not be able to recognize it once the work is done.
