First Batch of Old LAVC Bungalows Demolished on Campus
First Batch of Old LAVC Bungalows Demolished on Campus

LAVC waved goodbye to a few of its old 1950s bungalows on campus. Bungalows 50-52 were torn down in December 2018 to make way for a new thermal energy storage tank on campus. A crowd of faculty and staff gathered in Lot H as Dr. Endrijonas climb into a bulldozer to ceremoniously mark the beginning of the removal of these now-abandoned bungalows. The onlookers cheered once the bulldozer began leveling the bungalow structure to the ground. The remaining bungalows in the area are scheduled to be demolished at a later date.
