A classic, elegant city surrounded by excellence

Welcome to Westwood

A classic, elegant city surrounded by excellence
Bounded by Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica, the dual commercial and residential Westwood rises from the lands of the historic Wolfskill Ranch. Home to both UCLA, its hospital, and iconic, luxurious high-rise condominiums, this central location appeals to young professionals seeking a sunlit urban locale swimming in an upscale, mature ambiance.
Originally developed on the lands of Wolfskill Ranch, which had been owned by the founder of Broadway, Westwood came into its own throughout the early-mid 1900s. The presence of world-renowned UCLA made a huge impact throughout the development of Westwood, especially after the university’s popularity outgrew its initial plot of land. The addition of the nation’s second-ever planned suburban shopping district, as well as stunning high-rise condominiums, completes Westwood’s reputation as a deluxe neighborhood.
Today, Westwood is marked by a blend of suave, modern high-rises as well as attractive home architecture in the New Orleans Revival, American Colonial Revival, Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial Revival, Period Revival, Post-war Modern, French Regency, and Classical Revival styles. A sunbathed city in the heart of the Los Angeles area, you don’t have to be an urbanite to appreciate Westwood’s unparalleled living.

A majority of residents rent their homes, though a significant minority own them. Most work in sectors such as healthcare, public administration, entertainment, and others.

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

Westwood’s downtown is alive with all the vibrancy of a traditional downtown city. Restaurants, charming cafes, stylish boutiques, and shopping districts alike leave no stone of entertainment unturned.
Westwood Village is a shining beacon of all Westwood has to offer. With wide streets replete with excellent shops, the village is home to high-end boutiques such as the popular Brandy Melville and the uniquely charming Flax Pen to Paper.
Taste the splendor of the neighborhood by making a reservation at the delicious Napa Valley Grille before following up dinner with a stop at the sweet Daddy Riese Cookies for a spot of dessert. Or, head over to California Pizza Kitchen to fill up on creative, California-style pizza.

Things to Do

A university in addition to an already-showstopping environment means that Westwood is never at a loss for activity and charm.
Take advantage of the flavor of community at the frequent Westwood Farmers Market, which boasts all things produce, arts, and even baked goods. Or, get lost in the culture of Westwood’s “Little Persia,” as it hosts Norooz Festival and Persian Parade annually for people of all ages to enjoy.
With its finger on the pulse, the arts and culture scene of Westwood is bustling with life. Make a day trip to the Hammer Museum and top the evening off with tickets to a premier show at Geffen Playhouse, unless the splendidly historic halls of Regency Theaters are calling your name. The outdoors are another great pull, as the Westwood area is home to such gems as the Los Angeles Country Club.
