The Westside is now home to more than 500 technology and media companies, including Hulu, Snap Inc., Headspace, Scopely, ZipRecruiter and Tinder. If you’re a Los Angeles tech worker looking to live closer to the office or a new recruit from out-of-town, here are five new construction rental communities within proximity of Silicon Beach.
