ECHO PARK — An 111-year-old house on Morton Avenue looks like it is being demolished. But, at least as far as the city is concerned, this is major remodel – not a demolition.

Building permits for the house at 1708 Morton Avenue describe this project as a “ground floor addition and major remodel to single-family dwelling to create new bedrooms/bathroom in front and attached garage/laundry room at rear.”

Still, as far passerby are concerned, this old house is gone. At least some vintage concrete-like  portals – similar ones can be found on adjacent properties –  at the front of the property are still standing – for now.
