The Sunset Boulevard storefronts that once housed some antique shops on the western edge of Echo Park have been gutted and are awaiting a new tenant. But don’t expect another vintage dress shop or antique store to open here. Instead, the 3,200-square-foot space is going to become a veterinary clinic, according to building permits.
The permits do not provide any information about the owners of the clinic but they will find themselves located on a block that has in some respects gone to the dogs. The new clinic will be located between K9 Lofts – an upscale dog grooming, boarding and pet supply store – and the West Coast headquarters for Peta, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
What other animal related business will move on to the block? Pilates for your pets, perhaps?
