Activists to Block Construction Today at Marmion Royal Apartments

by LA1 News

The organizers of the Northeast Los Angeles Alliance (NELAA) have announced a construction protest at 7:00 a.m. this morning, at Marmion Royal apartments. The tenants still residing at the Highland Park building, who were caught in a mass eviction process earlier this year after it was sold to Skya Ventures and Gelt Ventures, are dealing with a new threat. The residents are living in their units while property owners proceed with renovation construction activities. The tenants have endured the removal of their laundry facilities, disconnection of air conditioning during the summer, dismantling of their satellite dishes, and a roach and pest infestation, as they claim, at the hands of the new property management team Moss & Company.

Boyle Heights Gentrification Takes Toll on Eastside Artists

by David R. Bloom

   Property owner Douglas Erenberg has retained Dennis P. Block, LA’s most notorious eviction lawyer and an unapologetic opponent of rent control, in his effort to evict a well-known group of community artists from their live-work spaces at 2623 Medford St., according to documents received by LA1 News.

   The tenants, who established the Medford Street Studios as a loose-knit collective of fine artists, street artists and curators in a Boyle Heights industrial warehouse complex, say Erenberg is suing them each individually to skirt a Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department determination that the property—and the landlord-tenant relationship—falls under the city’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance protocols.
