Living in a coastal city like Los Angeles means the Pacific Ocean is never far away. But what if you could live within a short stroll of the beach? Instead of starting off your day by sitting in traffic, you could go for a refreshing, early morning paddleboard session. If you’re looking to adopt the beach bum lifestyle, consider one of these five new construction rental projects.

1. Catherine Santa Monica

Developers: Century West Partners, Fifield Companies and Cypress Equity Investments
Neighborhood: Santa Monica
Status: Pre-leasing

It’s a straight shot down Colorado Avenue from Catherine to the Santa Monica Pier. Future residents will be able to reach the beach within a 15-minute walk or nine-minute bike ride. The project is nearing completion and prospective lessees can now apply online. The luxurious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments feature oversized windows, modern finishes and wood plank-style flooring.

2. AMLI Marina Del Rey

Developer: AMLI Residential California
Neighborhood: Marina del Rey
Status: Move-in ready

Silicon Beach employees will want to check out AMLI Marina del Rey, a newly completed waterfront community featuring scenic views, high-end finishes and resort-style amenities. Boat slips are available for residents to rent, and bike, paddleboard and kayak loaners can be reserved at the office. Closer to home, residents can take a dip in the salt water swimming pools or play a game of shuffleboard on the outdoor lanai.

3. 550 Harborfront

Developer: Holland Partner Group
Neighborhood: San Pedro
Status: Pre-leasing

If you’d rather take a jog along the waterfront than be pummeled by waves, 550 Harborfront in San Pedro could be the perfect match. Sitated along the LA Waterfront, this soon-to-be-completed project boasts 375 rental units, from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom townhouses. The interiors are appointed with quartz countertops, polished concrete or plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, and in-unit washers and dryers.

4. 442 Residences

Developer: Ensemble Real Estate Solutions and Investments
Neighborhood: Long Beach
Status: Move-in ready

Is a balcony with a waterfront view at the top of your must-have list? Then make a beeline for 422 Residences in downtown Long Beach, where the beach is just across the street. The community touts a Walk Score of 97 and there are numerous restaurants, fitness studios, breweries and retail outlet stores nearby. Hunt for ghosts aboard The Queen Mary or take the kids to the Aquarium of the Pacific to watch the penguins waddle about.

5. Neptune Marina

Developer: Greystar
Neighborhood: Marina del Rey
Status: Move-in ready

Neptune Marina offers one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and over 95,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities. Take a stroll around the marina, go for brunch along Abbot Kinney Boulevard, or head to Venice Beach to catch some waves. Of course, leaving the apartment complex is optional when you’ve got clubrooms, catering kitchens, private dining rooms, skydecks, heated pools, fitness centers and more all onsite.
