6811 Sepulveda

Sometime in the 1980s, the mini-mall took over Los Angeles and this city has never been the same.

There were always commercial buildings, but up until the 80s, they had something to say to the community other than crass crude ugliness.

The mini-mall exists partially due to a weak city government, voracious greed, community apathy and an ignorance of design.

One can love business and extol the need for trade, jobs and prosperity without endorsing blight and environmental degradation.

The photos above show 6811 Sepulveda Boulevard Van Nuys, CA 91405-4402. It is on the NW corner of Vanowen and Sepulveda and was constructed in 1986.
