Silver Lake, CA 1930s gas station for sale

Corner of Rowena and Glendale. This looks like maybe a Richfield station. It's twin in Glendale is being rehabbed into a park. I've seen some reused as coffee drive-thrus. Wouldn't this be a neat restoration project? I think it comes with the '50s modern building next door that's now an acupuncture office. Here's hoping some creative person saves this.

I love that gas station, I pass by it everyday. I would be a great location for a cafe! Nice trendy area. I hope that the right person buys it so it won't be destroyed.

1930's gas station-Silverlake...BEING TORN DOWN

Postby Galaxy Girl » Fri Jun 08, 2007 1:38 pm

Yeah, this place is pretty amazing. My friend and I were looking at it recently wishing it was available for us to lease as our Biodiesel Fueling Station. I called the old number for the leasing agent on the sign in your picture and he said that they sold the property to a developer that is TEARING IT DOWN!! When I told him how upset I was that it was being torn down he said "It's just an old piece of junk!". Then quickly he proceeded to ask me what type of property we were looking for and if he could be MY leasing agent. I DON'T think so. Not with that response!

if ever there was a perfect location for your biodiesel station - that would be it. not just physical location of mid-city, but the act of recycling the bldg. for recycled fuel!!! wow - what a winning idea.

keep trying!!!

The cantilevered canopy with its overhead beams has echoes for me; I'll see if I can find the prototype. . .

From Elizabeth Bougart-Sharkov of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council:

Since the property was put on the Market it's been on our radar. So far no one has contacted us with any proposal which may trigger discretionary action... If we notice any activity over there we will an attempt to contact the owner immediately.
 
Meanwhile, I'll appreciate any info with regards to the site and the architect of the original building.

I drove by this gas station on Rowen at 11 am this morning, as it was being demolished by a bulldozer.
Where are we going & what are we doing in this handbasket?

frequently

With the real estate bust and all that that goes with it, it's now a vacant lot.

well we all know a vacant lot is better than an awesome Modern Service Station....99% of developers are jerks.
