ECHO PARK — How about $100 a month? That’s what the owners of a small parking lot in the 1600 block of Echo Park Avenue are asking as parking becomes an increasingly scarce and apparently valuable commodity.
A “Parking Spaces For Lease” sign went up only about a week ago but broker Clint Lukens said “several inquiries” have already been made about the four available parking spaces in the gated lot.
Will renting out parking spaces become more common in gentrifying and crowded Eastside neighborhoods?
“Parking is and will continue to be a rare find in our neighborhoods,” said Lukens in an email. “Our city will never ever have enough parking. Compared to other major metropolises, we are lucky to have all the parking currently in place … here’s to riding bikes!”
