Silver Lake’s Flore Vegan is Closing
Flore Vegan in Silver Lake is permanently closing their doors after 13 years.
Real estate developer, Engine Real Estate, recently bought out the property that includes the vegan restaurant, and just this week gave owner Miranda Megill a 30-day notice to vacate. Engine says they acting as a change agent for the communities, claiming their primary goal is “gentrifying neighborhoods of Los Angeles, such as Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Highland Park.” Their plan is to update and re-tenant the entire property.
Megill had been running Flore on a monthly lease, but hoped to stay long term. Attempting to negotiate a new lease back in May, Megill was notified that her landlord, Aviano LLC, was currently refinancing and couldn’t renew leases. Aviano remained silent as she repeatedly tried to request a lease renewal, and was only told to wait for the building’s refinance. Things remained on hold through late October, when she was told that the building was in escrow. Megill attempted to contact Aviano again for the new owner’s (Engine Real Estate) contact information, only to receive no response—until this week, when she was served the notice to vacate, upon which Megill requested and received a small extension, allowing Flore in Silver Lake to remain open through the end of January.
Flore Vegan is located at 3818 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026 and will be open until January 31.
