West Adams

Welcome to West Adams

Convenient proximity to many city points and rich history found here

 

One of the city’s oldest areas, West Adams sits in a convenient location of Los Angeles: a short distance from Culver City, Mid-City, and Downtown. Residents here feel a sense of pride in the neighborhood and the homebuyers are getting younger and younger here: a good sign that more hip restaurants and bars will soon follow. 

 

With the construction of the Expo rail line right here in West Adams, the accessibility to the tech hubs of Silicon Beach and El Segundo has been key to the recent home sales. Bordered by Culver City, Leimert Park, Baldwin Hills, and Interstate 10, the 1.5-square-mile neighborhood is notable for the vibrant commercial districts along West Adams Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard. Over the past two years, restaurants including Mizlala and coffee shops like Highly Likely have begun to attract people from around the city.

 

Real estate here is rapidly growing, increasing in price and the value is climbing steadily up as well. This is an investment you should not pass up.

 

What to Love

  • Youthful, vibrant energy with a diverse population 
  • Close proximity to Mid-City, Culver City, and Beverly Hills

 

Local Lifestyle 

There is a great pride for West Adams, seen and felt by residents who have lived here for years as well as new homeowners/renters who have just discovered this neighborhood. Local farmers’ markets and street fairs, including a yearly block party sponsored by Delicious Pizza on West Adams Boulevard, help foster that pride. Residents are committed to making West Adams a sought-after community and are involved in area efforts for community service, beautification, and drawing new business here.

 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

This is slowly becoming a hub for awesome eateries in South Los Angeles. Here are some of our old and new favorites.

 

 

The main attraction for shopping would be the Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw Shopping Mall which is also home to Post & Beam, offering California fares with a touch of southern soul. The Real Real, a luxury consignment shop, is also setting up a location in the neighborhood.

 

Things to Do

West Adams is perfectly situated in Los Angeles to be not only close to Downtown Los Angeles but also to Culver City and Mid-City. It’s incredibly easy to hop on the Metro line to downtown and see a Lakers, Clippers, or Kings game at the (newly renamed) Crypto.Com Arena. West Adams also benefits from nearby Leimert Park Village which is home to many festivals, art shows, music events, and significant gatherings. 

 

The University of Southern California is nearby and during the fall, the football games are second to none: fans and alumni gather for tailgating, school spirit, and of course, some excellent street food.  

 

When you want to get outdoors you can head to the nearby Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area which has a Japanese garden, playgrounds, sports fields and courts, and a lake stocked with catfish and trout. There is also the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook for some great hiking and panoramic views of Los Angeles.
