ECHO PARK — What is the Mohawk Collective? That’s the name of the neighborhood’s new restaurant and retail center now taking shape in the buildings that once housed Lucy’s coin-laundry, Wells Tile & Antiques and several other businesses on Sunset Boulevard near Mohawk Street.
After the mass-closing of the businesses in April and May, the buildings have been quickly gutted as the folks behind Mohawk Collective, Continental Development Group, search for tenants to fill 11 spaces as well as a small area for pop-up retailers along Alvarado. In fact, three of spaces have already been leased, according to marketing materials. (The building at the corner that onced housed Pizza Buona is not part of the project)
Building permits say the former coin laundry spaces are being converted to restaurants. But will these spaces be filled with neighborhood outpost of major national chains or, upscale indy retailers and restaurants? The company has not responded to an Eastsider request for details. The Mohawk Collective “look book,” however, says“The project oers an unrivaled opportunity for creative restaurant and retail space on one of the most sought out specialty retail and dining neighborhoods.”
Mohawk Collective is expected to open next spring.
