West Adams has been called LA’s next hot neighborhood. In reality, it’s one of the oldest in the city, dotted with historic homes and industrial-style office spaces. Its central location has piqued the interest of several developers, and new residential projects are springing up along major corridors. If you’re looking for an apartment in a well-connected area (with Metro Expo Line access to boot), consider one of these three new construction options.
