Watch where you drop that house

Echo Park — A giant crane on the bluffs west of Echo Park Lake has been busy the last few days lifting, swinging and then slowly dropping sections of prefabricated homes that are being assembled on a lot on Belmont Avenue.

It’s the latest prefab project in the neighborhood by ark.la development, which recently completed a four-home project on Quintero Street above Sunset Boulevard.

The Texas architect of the five-home development above the lake has also posted video of the sections being lifted through the air.

No word on when the Belmont homes will be completed or how much they will cost. But some of the prefab homes on Quintero, which are sold out, were priced at above $1 million each.
