House demolished based on permits issued in error

Below, from top to bottom: Tom O’Neill in his demolished house, March 28, at 713-721 Venice Blvd. O’Neill was paid to move (outside of Venice) and to not talk to the media. Developer: Murphy. Photo by: Nick Smith.

The city of L.A.’s Department of Building and Safety left a note at the location revoking the demolition permits. However, that notice was ignored and demolition proceeded as planned on May 28. Note states “Demo permits possibly issued in error.” Way to go, L.A.!
