Work on the new LA Express Car Wash in Silver Lake is wrapping up just in time for the rains to arrive. Construction of the car wash, which replaced a former Union 76 service station at the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Fletcher Drive, is complete but workers are installing equipment inside the building, which is wrapped in a copper-colored material and topped with skylights. L.A. Express gives the impression that it’s a full service car wash but it’s really a self-service operation, explained one worker who was installing equipment. Drivers pull up to a machine that looks like an ATM to select and pay for their wash before their vehicle goes through an automated washer. Customers will then dry their cars under about two dozen individual canopies. When will L.A. Express , which was designed by Leslie Lippich Architects, open? The Eastsider has call into the contractor to find out.
