SILVER LAKE — It was nearly a decade ago that preservationists and residents failed to prevent the demolition of what was once a Streamline Moderne-style gas station at the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Rowena Avenue. The small building was quickly torn down but the site has remained vacant ever since. Now, after some failed efforts by previous owners, a developer is in the early stages of building three homes on the property.
Reader Jason Hoang tipped us off about notices posted on the site indicating that Heyday Partnership, which has constructed small-lot projects nearby, had filed permits to build a trio of 3-story homes on the approximately 7,800-square-foot lot. “Hopefully they in fact build because I really like their developments,” Hoang said.
Co-owner Hardy Wronske said it was too early in the process to provide any details about what the firm has in mind for the project beyond what was available in public online documents.
In addition to the Heyday projects, the corner lot sits in an area that has seen the arrival of several larger residential developments, including the 63-unit Latitudes condos on Waverly Terrace and 33 more condos on the former Coffee Table property on Rowena.
