ATWATER VILLAGE — With a row of arrow-shaped fins rising above Los Feliz Boulevard, the Los Feliz Car Wash represents a classic piece of 1960s, roadside architecture. But now it looks like the car wash’s days might be numbered. The approximately 26,000 square-foot property is up for sale and being promoted as a “development site,” according to a listing on LoopNet.
The car wash at Los Feliz and Perlita Avenue occupies a valuable, block-long stretch of Los Feliz Boulevard near the Costco shopping center. The asking price was not disclosed. Says the listing:
The property will be delivered vacant at the close of escrow, making the opportunity perfect for a developer!
Built in 1963, the Los Feliz car wash has been mentioned in some blogs devoted to roadside and Mid Century architecture. A 1965 photo of the Los Feliz Car Wash in all its Googie-like glory was included in a Santa Monica art exhibit.
