Upon construction, its design was “in keeping with the California climate for outdoor recreation”, reported the Los Angeles Times newspaper, with just 18 percent land dedicated to buildings as well as a view out of each living room’s window to a sprawling park.
Architects of Park La Brea filled it with elegant properties that offer a contemporary take on the Colonial Revival architecture style. It was Tommy Tomson, responsible for many of the best-known landscapes in Los Angeles, who designed Park La Brea’s garden apartments.
Even though first planned to contain just two-story properties and keep a low-scale look, many thirteen-story buildings were constructed in 1950 in its eastern half in response to the housing shortage, experienced post the Second World War. The park-like setting now boasts of more than 4000 units, which make it the biggest multi-family residential development to the west side of the Mississippi River.
It is easy to see just how the community can look quite appealing to a number of renters, particularly families and young professionals. The community is conveniently situated across the street from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Grove. It is encircled by lush gardens as well as fountains. Instead of over 80 units an acre, this gated community has fewer units an acre. The narrow, residents-only streets minimize all the traffic and noise. For a neighborhood set in a high-density area, it is surprisingly tranquil.
The urban oasis has amenities such as outdoor cafes, pools, gyms, a theater, business meeting rooms, and clubhouses. The gold resort-like neighborhood is best explored by foot, though going on a bike ride with friends is also one of the pleasurable experiences here. The Fairfax District is home to an eclectic mix of furniture and home accessories showrooms. In the community, there are quite a few well-known retail as well as dining options, too. When it comes to shopping, the Wilshire Boulevard is lined up with many places.
The community completed a grand renovation back in 2010, which wove the Art Deco architecture themes into its lobbies, gates, fences, and a new spa and pool.
