The new owners of a 12-unit Echo Park apartment house have wasted no time in raising the profile – and apparently the rent – of the Mediterranean-style building in the 1400 block of Echo Park Avenue. After purchasing the property for $1.05 million about two months ago , the owners have installed new iron lamps as well as security cameras out front, where the walls have been painted a shade of cream and the former brown pink trim is now a dark brown. Looks like there has also been some restoration underway on the inside, where a renovated, one-bedroom apartment with hardwood floors was recently listed on Craiglist for $1,400 a month. The listing has been deleted. Does that mean the rent was too high or is that apartment already rented?
