Playa Vista, situated on LA’s Westside, is one of the most innovative urban infill developments in the country. Less than 2 miles from the beach and offering a short drive to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Playa Vista is also connected to some of the best bike paths in California. Located on land that formerly housed the headquarters of Howard Hughes’ aircraft company, the property is now a thriving and evolving mixed-use community. More than 15,000 people now live and work at Playa Vista, with another 5,000 expected in the next few years. Seventy percent of Playa Vista’s original design and land area is designated as parks and open space, and the community features modern sustainable development throughout, leading to its recognition by the Los Angeles Times as “LA’s Urban Model.” Playa Vista has also become an example for urban planners throughout the world who are looking to observe innovative sustainable policies in action.
