Entire West LA Block Leveled for Shiny New Grocery Store

New, 34 comments

One of the biggest eyesores in West LA, the ugly Vons at Santa Monica Boulevard and Barrington Avenue, has now been completely demolished, along with all the ramshackle buildings on the entire block. Vons owner Safeway is building a new Pavilions grocery store that hides the copious parking in the back and on the roof; it's expected to open next year. Part of the construction process involves removing enormous, overgrown trees, which have decimated the sidewalks, along Barrington, Barry, and Idaho Avenues for "street widening."
