Echo Park – The Brick Works – a retail and residential development on the site of the old Grocery Warehouse on Sunset Boulevard – has signed its first tenant.

Coffee roaster Stereoscope Coffee will be moving in to the Brick Works and opening a 936-square-foot flagship store, according to CBRE, which represents the landlord, Champion Real Estate Company.

Stereoscope roasts a variety of coffee beans  and operates a coffee shop in Buena Park. The micro roaster has supplied beans to cafes in the Arts District and Los Feliz.

The Brick Works, which will have 15,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, is set to be complete April 2019. In addition, a mix of studio and one-bedroom apartments are being constructed on the second floor of one of the buildings on the site.

The renovations are set for completion in April 2019.

  1. fantastic news! another coffee shop is exactly what we needed!!!

  2. Congrats coffee shop!

    I have tenant idea…. TiGeorge Haitian Chicken!

  3. Less coffee, more bars please

  4. The area also needs more barber shops and tattoo parlors. You know, the kind that can afford a whole billboard to advertise themselves on the sleepy corner of Sunset and Alvarado (the ambiguous photo of a wind farm in the desert captures their spirit so well!). Don’t let my bitter sarcasm drip into your coffee.


  6. I get that people are over the cafe concept, but nobody seems to have an alternative or actual neighborhood need.

    I would rather have a coffee shop that I never go to over an abandon store front or some HR Block. The reality is that the demands for retail space has changed so dramatically in the last 10 years, gone are the days where a street is lined with one of every animal under the sun for anyone’s casual whim or desire. If cafes were in oversupply, there wouldn’t new one’s opening up every other week. Just be glad it’s not another starbucks

  7. New California Barbershop is good people don’t knock it!

    Chances are you wont post this because …. well just because .

    But Echo Park is not a community anymore , its just a bunch of tourists , air b and b renters , and rich kids whose daddies bought them an “investment ” property they can live in while they work on their modeling , music producer or “acting ” career so on and so forth.
    Hence , ALL THE COFFEE shops , no one works.

    • Not sure what you’re referring to. In the community I live (going on 7years now) there are people of multiple backgrounds-ethnicities. Black, White, Jewish, Armenian, Korean, Indian, Chinese, Latino.. gay, straight, 30s to 60s, they work in technology, entertainment, real estate, health care, or are entrepreneurs, some work from home others offices or in the field.. and we all love living in Echo Park and have made an investment in it because it is a great place to live.. from what I’ve seen it may be the most egalitarian neighborhood in Los Angeles..

  9. We need Hama Sushi!
