Playa Vista

The Community

Nestled between Ballona Creek and the Loyola Marymount University campus, the contemporary planned community of Playa Vista is the hub of "Silicon Valley" and the pinnacle of Westside urban living.

The area was previously headquarters of Hughes Aircraft Company from 1941 to 1985 and the site of the construction of the “Spruce Goose” aircraft. Part of the legendary land that was home to the aerospace empire has culminated with Runway, a large-scale mixed-use center offering unique shopping, dining, entertainment and living space in the heart of the community. Much in the same way Hughes inspired innovation at his headquarters, today that innovation is in technology, creative and entertainment. The Campus hosts many tech and media giants such as YouTube/Google, Yahoo, Samsung and Fox to name a few. Sophisticated office spaces surround Central Park, a green space which provides fresh air and hosts outdoor concerts, movies and community events.
