The Beginning Of The End For Wilshire Village

Photos by Blake Whitaker

It looks like Wilshire Village, that strange, 1940s apartment complex on West Alabama and Dulavy, is finally facing the wrecking ball.

Based on what we've observed so far, the demolition is still in the foreplay stages -- a little sidewalk-breakin', some strategically blown-out windows (safety first!), sleepy-looking dudes in orange vests guiding huge dump trucks into the parking lot -- but we'll keep watching for when the real destruction goes down. (Three more photos after the jump.)

Access: We can't has it

If you prefer to remember the quirky complex as it was, check out our slideshow from earlier this year. And here's a post about how the Wilshire Village tenants were evicted in a perfectly fair manner in order to make room for the yuppie-hive that's likely to take its place.
