Meet Dick + Jane, Echo Park's Newest Twist on Housing

New, 55 comments

Over the weekend, Heyday, a local developer that specializes in small lot projects, held an open house for Dick + Jane, its newest Echo Park development. Is this a new look for the bungalow, Craftsman, and stucco-heavy neighborhood? Yes, it is. The two single family homes, located on Echo Park Avenue near Echo Park Lake, each measure 1,600 square feet (three bedroom, two baths) and are priced at $679,000. Designed by Kevin Wronske (one half of Heyday), the homes squeeze a lot of outside space on the shared lot: Outdoor decks, small patios, possible garden in the back. Other perks include numerous skylights, bamboo flooring in the kitchen, and built-in audio systems. There's also an interesting-looking "architectural staircase" (that will, uh, need a second railing to pass inspection). Eastsider has long been following the project and has an interview with the team on the design, as well as an explanation on why the exterior of the home changed (at one point, the upper part of the home had a street-facing floor to ceiling glass wall). Heyday's last project, Rock Row in Eagle Rock, quickly sold out.
