What was once a vast stretch of marshland, and later the headquarters of Howard Hughes’ aircraft company, is now the thriving urban community of Playa Vista. Featuring parks, restaurants, fitness studios and upscale residences, the planned neighborhood is entirely walkable and home to a popular weekly farmers’ market.
Numerous tech companies have set up shop in Playa Vista, including YouTube, Facebook, Hulu, Yahoo! and Google, making it an attractive locale for employees looking to live close to work. If you’re seeking to rent or own in this well-connected Westside community, consider one of these four brand new developments.
