Playa Vista is an upscale master-planned community in Westside Los Angeles, bounded by Lincoln Boulevard, the Bellona Wetlands, Bellona Creek, the Del Rey Hills bluffs and Centinela Avenue. This 1.3 square mile neighborhood is considered a very low density community, with only around 1,800 people per square mile.
The site where Playa Vista now sits used to be the headquarters for Hughes Aircraft Company. It included the private Hughes Airport and an aircraft factory where the Spruce Goose or the Hughes H-4 Hercules plane was built.
In the mid-1990’s, the area became the site of Hollywood sound stages where scenes from highly popular movies were filmed. In 2001, the area’s transformation into the community of Playa Vista began.
Playa Vista was one of the six pilot communities under the national government’s “Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing” program, featuring technologically advanced telecommunications and broadband capabilities and a “model for green development.” Along with Santa Monica and Venice, Playa Vista makes up Silicon Beach, an up-and-coming technology hub housing major tech companies like Google, Buzzfeed and YouTube, as well as around 500 tech startups.
Playa Vista features residential, commercial and retail properties in a beautifully designed community that’s now home to some of L.A.’s most noteworthy residents.
