The creation of a six foot tall wall at the pedestrian-popular intersection of Sunset and Sanborn remains a hot topic in Silver Lake. Councilmember Eric Garcetti's office says that, following a complaint, the Department of Building and Safety is investigating the wall, part of an addition to Cafe Stella that the owner says is intended to keep children from seeing adults drinking. It'll be discussed at a neighborhood council meeting tonight. Cafe Stella owner Gareth Kantner tells Eastsider LA that the wall will be more aesthetically pleasing once blue paint and vines are added--he provided this rendering to the blog. Meanwhile, he discusses even more of his plans (including Moroccan lamps, a possible community board, and lights on the corner) with Echo Park Patch. Will the additions mollify the neighborhood?
