Playa Vista is a Westside neighborhood on 1,087 acres full of parks and very dog friendly. Playa del Rey is also part of Los Angeles' Silicon Beach.
Playa Vista lies below the bluffs of Westchester, adjacent to Playa del Rey, Marina Del Rey, and, on its easternmost border, to Culver City.
This vibrant new community balances critically needed housing, office space, neighborhood shopping, parks and habitat protection on Los Angeles' Westside. At Playa Vista, you will find a community that includes homes built for today's lifestyles by many of the nation's leading builders. This diverse collection of residences includes detached single-family homes, town homes, condominiums and urban-style lofts-all with state-of-the-art amenities.
Once known as the land where Howard Hughes built his aerospace empire, today's Playa Vista has undergone a smart growth transformation into a thriving, tight-knit community which brings together an eclectic mix of housing near work centers throughout the Westside, the beach, beautiful parks and modern office centers. Long recognized as a model "smart growth" project, Playa Vista has been billed as one of the most technologically advanced communities ever planned with fully connected telecommunications and broadband capabilities. Existing Playa Vista homes and new neighborhoods opening soon will house approximately 13,000 residents.
The new Playa Vista Elementary School shows what can happen when educators, planners, green builders and community come together to create a state-of-the-art model for teaching and learning. Through a partnership with Loyola Marymount University, the Los Angeles Unified School District and the local community, this beautiful new demonstration school is quickly becoming a breeding ground for effective teaching strategies, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The vision that drives Playa Vista Elementary School as a hub of innovation, research and professional development is delivering a challenging, nurturing environment for the youngest learners.
