This is an Orange Alert for all you West Siders living L.A. The center of our green universe is about to lose it’s anchor. I am talking about Abbot Kinney, and all those greenish businesses which are starting to dominate the street. The anchor company epOxyGreen on the corner of Venice Blvd and Abbot Kinney is pulling up it’s roots and heading North. Well, only a few blocks North, to the traffic chocked artery of Lincoln Blvd. They are moving in with our friends at Sander Architects in the belly of the Orange Office. From the email Catherine sent over, it sounds like they leased the bottom two floors.
epOxyGreen over the last few years has transformed their business to focus on green design and home improvement. opOxyGreen grew out of opOxybOx which is a gallery and event spot. Some time ago, the gallery started filling up with green paints, bamboo floor samples and assorted furnishings. Now with a larger space and a prime location on one of L.A. busiest streets, maybe epOxyGreen is about to transform it’s self once again. Photos after the jump
Who knows maybe Lincoln Blvd is the new green hip street. I know it’s ugly and traffic choked, but it is also the new home of the mega cool Whole Foods, which I am sure, will be a greater green pull than anything Venice has ever seen.
Here is the official notice from Sander Architects: epOxyGreen has leased 6,000 square feet of the Orange Office building to open their flagship Green Design Center. Destined to become a one-stop-shop for green design and construction, the GDC will make green building materials and services available to both the trade and the general public.
The GDC will be open for business in July 2009 with a Grand Opening in September of 2009. Please call 310-578-2123 for more information. The Orange Office is located at 2434 Lincoln Blvd. Venice Ca 90291
