Condo corridor?

Joe D'Augustine took note today of a new ripped away space in EP -- the old industrial buildings at the base of the funnel that dumps southbound cars off of the 2 freeway and into the neighborhood. This is one empty hole Chicken Corner has not had the occasion to see first hand.

Joe writes:

The big complex of industrial buildings at the top of Glendale Blvd. across from the entrance to the 2 freeway has been demolished. It was a printing company. ... It's also was where the Edendale Silent Film obelisk was standing. I didn't see [the obelisk] when I drove by. I hope it didn't get destroyed. ... The neighborhood is changing.

Yeah, they're going to shoehorn condos in there.

In addition to directing and editing films and spotting the heartbreaking transitional spaces of EP, Joe D'Augustine has an inspired film blog, Film Forno.
