Leimert Park maintains much of its original architectural designs that include Spanish and Mediterranean styled homes, manicured lawns and access to transportation. It was originally designed in 1928 for the upper and middle-class families, today for buyers seeking relative affordability and location between the Westside and downtown Los Angeles, Leimert Park is an area in great demand.
Leimert Park Village is a lively hub of art galleries, culture, coffee shops and jazz cafes. The park has a large water fountain which serve as the focal point of the village.
Leimert Park is named after the founder, famed developer, Walter H. Leimert. He began developing the community with landscape architectural expertise of New York’s Olmsted Brothers.
It was considered a model of urban planning, one of the first planned communities in southern California. It is surrounded by well-planned streets, freeways and the Expo Line.
It is within 6-8 miles of Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive; LAX; the Great Western Forum; Hollywood Race Track and Casino; Century City; USC and Exposition Park; the Coliseum and various county museums, and the Los Angeles Downtown financial and shopping districts are to name a few.
