Silicon Beach Real Estate On The Market Today
Living La Vida Digital
Silicon Beach is spawning a real estate boom for West LA. We’ve seen double-digit price growth and a dwindling supply of inventory. Days on market are few and properties are selling well above asking prices, prompting one commentator to pen a story titled “Silicon Beach Gets Stupid: Hideous Shack Asking $1.495M.”
The area known as Silicon Beach covers approximately a four-mile stretch west of the 405 freeway, along the coast, and includes Santa Monica, Venice and Marina del Rey. Increasingly, Playa Vista is being included, with Facebook and YouTube recently planting flags in the new community.
Startup Genome, a research project that compiles data on start-ups around the world, ranks LA third on the global start-up scene, behind stalwart Silicon Valley and Tel Aviv.
It’s no wonder that new media tech innovators flock to LA’s beach cities. With the Venice hip factor and grittiness, opportunities to surf at lunch and easy freeway access to Hollywood, creative types found the perfect home. Google, Snapchat, Hulu, business incubators like Amplify and hundreds of emerging technology firms now populate the area shoulder to shoulder with an eclectic mix of youth hostels, pot dispensaries, bong shops, hot new restaurants and fashion-forward boutiques. GQ magazine dubbed Abbot Kinney “The Coolest Block in America.”
And it doesn’t hurt that tech investors like the area, too, and that there is a steady stream of talent coming out of USC, UCLA and other local schools fostering entrepreneurship.
