Living in Silicon Beach: New Westside homes provide convenience, affordability

When you say, “high tech,” many people naturally think of Northern California’s Silicon Valley. But, another California hotspot farther down the coast is right on its heels.

Concentrated on the Westside of Los Angeles, the area known as Silicon Beach — encompassing Santa Monica to the Los Angeles Airport and Venice Beach to the Hollywood Hills — is worth “more than $155 billion,” according to an analysis by Mediakix. This economic juggernaut has created an abundance of jobs in one of the country’s hottest real estate markets, and 11724 Culver offers brand new homes on the Westside, with quick and easy access to all of the tech shops.

11724’s spacious, detached residences provide up to 2,473 square feet of open-concept living space from only $1,285,000 — a more affordable price point than the median for the 90066 zip code. The contemporary tri-level floor plans offer three to four bedrooms and and in-demand, high-end, energy-efficient features. Gourmet kitchens include expansive islands, Quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, and flow right into the dining and living areas. The luxe master suites are located upstairs for privacy, and feature large walk-in closets and spa baths with walk-in showers. These distinctive residences also boast private yards and two-car attached, direct-access garages.

This limited offering is selling rapidly, so buyers who are interested in single-family homes on the Westside are encouraged to schedule a tour soon by calling (310) 313-3339.

11724 Culver: In the heart of Silicon Beach employment centers

Discover Los Angeles notes that, “Los Angeles County, largely because of Silicon Beach’s growth, has more high-tech jobs than Boston-Cambridge, Santa Clara County and New York City, according to the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. And contrary to the bookish reputation of such tech companies, Silicon Beach’s growth has fed an influx of residents, businesses and tourists alike looking for that combination of activity, beach vibe and artsiness that’s long been associated with the area.”

This combination of factors is leading tech stars to seek employment in Southern California instead of up north. Those who want to be close to work, without having to deal with the traffic crunch in Playa Vista or the “chaotic beach scene on the Boardwalk” — as Discover Los Angeles calls it — are increasingly looking to West Los Angeles. 11724 Culver provides a central location, more space and a lower price point than other Silicon Beach options. 1724’s brand new Westside homes are up to hundreds of thousands of dollars less than Playa Vista’s smaller new homes, and often comparable with smaller, older homes in Santa Monica and Culver City that are largely in need of costly, frustrating and time-consuming renovations.

Get to know Silicon Beach a bit better with this overview of its key areas:

Playa Vista

Playa Vista is a dynamic tech hub that hosts dozens of global employers. Google recently added more than 100,000 square feet to their new digs in the massive four-story Spruce Goose hangar and YouTube Space — located in the former  Howard Hughes Airport — offers free access to a number of production resources for creators. The Honest Company, actress Jessica Alba’s billion-dollar wellness brand, is also headquartered in Playa Vista.

“A relatively young community, Playa Vista surprisingly boasts many heavy-hitters in the tech industry,” said built in LA. “Playa Vista has large, open structures, making it perfect for the sprawling office spaces that tech companies and startups love.”

It also has numerous new-home offerings, but is well-known as a very expensive place to live. According to Zillow, “The median list price per square foot in Playa Vista is $769.” That’s a whopping $246 higher than the Los Angeles average of $523 and $139 higher than 11724 Culver’s $630 median.

Culver City

There is also a push east among tech companies, many of whom are finding the ideal home in Culver City. Apple recently announced “plans to open a new office in Culver City, which is expected to create 1,000 new jobs,” said ABC7. “The jobs will be a mix of technology in digital music and video programming, two areas where Apple is expanding to compete with Spotify and Netflix.” The office is located at 8777 Washington Blvd., just three miles from 11724 Culver—a location chosen, said Richard Florida, an urban development expert at the University of Toronto, because they are “just picking America’s most established superstar cities and tech hubs.”

Tech-based on-demand storage and moving company Clutter, cybersecurity leader Symantec, and computer hardware/software company Media Temple are also located in Culver City.

Santa Monica

Social media app Snapchat came to prominence during its time in Venice, where they snapped up real estate at an amazing pace, but has since settled into its impressive new digs — 300,000 square feet at the Santa Monica Business Park — just four miles from the Westside new homes of 11724 Culver. Streaming entertainment company Hulu is also located in Santa Monica, with 95,000 square feet of creative space in the city.

The city is also one of the hottest incubators for startups, including:

  • ZipRecruiter, one of the most well-known online employment marketplaces
  • Tradesy, a marketplace for designer goods
  • Headspace, a meditation-based mental fitness app
  • Fair.com, a car-buying app
  • Inspire, making clean energy “approachable” through personalized home subscription plans
  • Hallmark Labs, the digital arm of Hallmark Cards, Inc.
  • TaskUs, specializing in customer care and back office support for companies

Venice

Just three and one-half miles from the new homes at 11724 Culver, the Venice Beach Boardwalk was once thought of as mainly a hippy hangout. Today, Venice is L.A.’s “arguably buzziest area” and “downright electric,” according to Discover LA. Before SnapChat’s move to Santa Monica, their 305,000 square feet of office space was divided between numerous Venice properties. Google L.A. has leased Frank Gehry’s landmark Binoculars Building since 2011, and Gem — a crypto investment app — is headquartered in stylish digs just a few blocks from the historic Muscle Beach.

If you or a family member are looking to the Westside as a home base while pursuing an education, here are several schools to consider:

UNIVERSITIES

University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)

It’s not hard to see why UCLA is considered one of the premier universities in the country when you consider its pedigree: Students have earned 14 Nobel Prizes, 13 faculty MacArthur Fellows, 116 NCAA titles “and more Olympic medals than most nations.” UCLA also has the distinction of being the “most applied-to university in the nation.”

USC has been ranked No. 21 in national universities by U.S. News & World Report and 10th for academics and quality of student life by Niche.com. In addition, The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism was ranked No. 1 by USA Today; The Marshall School of Business, the USC Leventhal School of Accounting, Viterbi School of Engineering, the Sol Price School of Public Policy, and the USC School of Pharmacy are all in the top 10 as ranked by U.S. News & World Report, and The Hollywood Reporter and USA Today both rank the School of Cinematic Arts the No. 1 film school in the nation.

Culver City Lifestyle at a More Affordable Price

2019-04-04T00:59:43+00:00

It’s a good time to live near Culver City!

Apple’s future 128,000-square-foot digs and Amazon Studios’ expansion add to the already bustling tech hub, area eateries are some of the best in all of Southern California, and home prices are hotter than ever. According to Zillow, Culver City’s median values were up 12.7 percent in 2018, and expected to rise almost 7 percent in 2019. That why buyers are so excited about our three to four bedroom single-family detached homes, conveniently situated less than two miles from downtown Culver City. Priced from just $1,285,000, almost half of the 12 residences at this limited offering have already sold, and the anticipation continues to build as construction nears completion.

Finding an affordable home in this coveted location typically means buying something much older, with far less square footage than you would like, and in need of major renovations — which can be costly and a huge hassle to live through. Buyers at 11724 Culver love that they can move right in to a spacious, brand-new detached home with up to 2,473 square feet of open-concept living, and just a few minutes away from everything that Culver City has to offer.

“In Los Angeles, location is everything. This is especially true when it comes to the tech startups that call L.A. home. Until recently, it was almost uncommon to see a tech company headquartered outside of Santa Monica or Venice, but that’s not the case anymore,” said Built in Los Angeles. “Culver City has always been an important place for the entertainment industry. Because of its central location, it’s no surprise the neighborhood has attracted a number of tech companies over recent years.”    

In addition to the new Amazon Studios and Apple locations, Culver City is home to popular gaming companies, storage startups, media and consumer electronics heavyweights like Beats Music, and digital media powerhouse PopSugar. The city is also known for its vibrant arts community, noted as one of the 10 “Best Arts Districts” in the nation by USA Today, with an array of contemporary galleries and artist studios.

Recreation is also abundant, including eleven city parks that provide ample space to play and exercise. LA Weekly calls the Culver City Stairs “one of the best spots for athletes looking for a challenge” and the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Center offers picnic sites, tot lots, a fishing lake and five miles of hiking trails.

Equally desirable is the city’s entertainment, dining, and shopping scene — making it a must-visit destination for leisure activities. The recent influx of design-centric businesses like Nike and Apple have brought with them ‘an onslaught of aesthetically minded shops and restaurants,” says Vogue. “Its architecture is extremely varied, ranging from Renaissance Revival–style historic buildings (like the Culver Hotel) to architect Eric Owens Moss’s body of experimental office spaces that dominate the industrial Hayden Tract. And, unlike other parts of L.A., alternative transportation is a viable option — a bike path that runs along the Ballona Creek will take you from Culver City to the beach, and the L.A. metro will get you downtown in 40 minutes.”

Top-reviewed eateries draw diners from all over the Westside, and those who purchase a home at 11724 Culver will be just minutes away from buzzed-about spots like Destroyer, known for its “modern twists on breakfast and lunch,” K-ZO, a Japanese gem that Zagat calls one of “the best in the West;” Roy Choi’s A-Frame, offering a tropical menu and exotic cocktails; and, of course, Vespertine, which has become one of the most popular and talked-about restaurants in all of L.A.

For shopping, your choices are just as vast, including Platform, an outdoor mall with manicured cactus gardens and design details that make it every bit as fun to look at as it is to shop in; the West Coast offshoot of Brooklyn boutique Bird; Arcana, a not-to-be-missed bookstore in the former Helms Bakery complex; upscale bodega Hi Lo Liquor; and Stanley’s Wet Goods, a Venice Boulevard spot “dedicated to sustainable wines and small-batch beers and spirits.”

A more affordable alternative to Culver City

Purchasing a brand-new, detached home at 11724 Culver will put you right in the center of this coveted Westside lifestyle, at a price that’s worth every penny when compared to older, smaller and attached homes. Buyers also love that the location puts them in a great position to enjoy a noted real estate investment tactic. “The strategy is simple,” says Bigger Pockets. Investing on the “fringe” of high-growth areas “increases your odds of appreciation.”

Buyers at 11724 Culver don’t have to wait for remodeling — they can relax and enjoy their spacious, open-concept floor plan from day one. These new construction homes feature contemporary architecture and airy, tri-level interiors filled with desirable amenities such as: engineered wood floors; chef’s kitchens with spacious islands, Quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances; spa-style baths with walk-in showers; large walk-in closets; energy-efficient features including tankless water heaters; private yards; and two-car direct-access garages.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a new home in West Los Angeles at 11724 Culver, and enjoy all the best of Culver City, with higher square footage, everything new, and a more affordable price.

Close to the Beach and Well Within Reach

2019-04-04T01:14:29+00:00

The coastal enclave of Marina del Rey is one of the most desirable places to live in Southern California, and also one of the most expensive. Median home listings are close to $1.4 million in the seaside playground’s hot 90292 zip code — and rents are sky-high.

Just two miles away, the brand new, single-family detached homes at 11724 Culver offer an affordable, beach-close alternative, and easy access to the Marina’s premier lifestyle and amenities.

The West L.A. market is even hotter, according to Zillow, where median home values of $1,562,800 have increased 10.8% over the past year and are predicted to rise another 9.2% in 2019. Starting at just $1,285,000 — with up to 2,473 square feet of open-concept living — 11724’s limited collection of three to four bedroom detached homes will sell out quickly, so buyers are urged to call (310) 313-3339 now for an appointment.

Santa Monica Bay offers some of the finest wide sandy beaches in all of Southern California.

Sales volume increases on the Westside are partially fueled by growth in the local tech sector. “Companies such as Facebook and Google have moved to these areas, and many employees…are looking for homes near their offices,” said MLS CEO Annie Ives in the Los Angeles Times. “Don’t expect things to cool anytime soon.”

Purchasing adjacent to the Westside’s hottest neighborhoods is considered a wise investment strategy, according to leading real estate authorities like Trulia. Buyers “flock to these next big neighborhoods,” they explain, and buyers are encouraged to maximize their dollars by getting in early “before it becomes the next big thing.”

Enjoying the Marina del Rey lifestyle

Jutting into Marina Del Rey’s main channel, Burton Chace Park is perfectly situated for barbecues and boat-watching.

“Small-but-mighty Marina del Rey has attracted a boatload (!) of seriously good restaurants over the past few years—to the point where it’s now one of LA’s strongest food destinations,” says Thrillist. “This 1.5 square-mile coastal community is packed with everything from rustic Italian eateries to fancy waterfront restaurants…and then there’s the iconic pub that turns into a turtle-racing hub on Thursdays. What more do you need to know?”

There are numerous unique recreation options in Marina del Rey. The easily accessible Ballona Creek Bike Path intersects with the scenic Marvin Braude Coastal Trail, where cyclists, joggers and pedestrians can travel along the waterfront for 22 miles.

You can also take an aqua yoga class, picnic at Burton Chase Park, play volleyball at Mother’s Beach, go parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking and paddle boarding, and enjoy popular annual events like the California Yacht Club’s Sunset Sailing Series and December’s Holiday Boat Parade. It’s all just minutes from your front door at 11724 Culver!

The 7-mile long Ballona Creek Bike Path is easily accessible and runs from east Culver City to the beach, where it intersects with the Coastal Trail.

A more affordable alternative to Marina del Rey

Three to four bedroom, tri-level floor plans allow owners at 11724 Culver to spread out in up to 2,473 square feet of detached, open-concept living. Contemporary designs give buyers what they crave and allow them to start enjoying their brand new home right away, instead of waiting months — and spending wads of cash — to renovate an older home. 

Gourmet kitchens boast spacious islands, Quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, and the spa-style baths showcase walk-in showers. Energy-efficient features like tankless water heaters help buyers conserve, and the homes also offer desirable amenities such as engineered wood floors, spacious walk-in closets, private yards, and two-car attached, direct-access garages.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a new single-family home on the Westside at 11724 Culver, and enjoy all the best of Marina del Rey with a lower price, a larger space, and everything brand new.
