Few Los Angeles neighborhoods have the cultural cache of Mid Wilshire. This 2.78 square mile patch of central LA grew up around Miracle Mile, a thriving shopping district developed in the 1920s and 1930s to give downtown LA a run for its money. Today, Miracle Mile is not only home to world-class shopping and dining, but also Museum Row, the location of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Craft Contemporary, Petersen Automotive Museum, and many others.
As if that weren’t enough, Mid Wilshire has the honor of being the location of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, purveyors of the most prestigious award in the film industry—the Oscar. An Academy Museum is in development along Museum Mile as well. Mid Wilshire also encompasses the La Brea Tarpits, a popular tourist attraction consisting of natural asphalt pools that date back hundreds of thousands of years.
So what is life like, living in such auspicious acreage? A pedestrian, bicycle, and transit-friendly wonderland, with coffee shops, cafes, parks, boutique stores, and upscale restaurants dotting quaint pre-war streets lined with palm trees.
Venture into the residential neighborhoods and you will discover pre-war homes in classic period-revival style, from Spanish to Colonial to Mission. Other streets are lined with postwar Mid-Century Modern, Contemporary, and Ranch homes, with a scattering of Craftsman, Bungalow, Tudor, and English Country homes. Median list prices start just north of $1.4 million, excellent value at just under $750 per square foot.
A multicultural melting-pot of young professionals, Mid Wilshire benefits from a progressive, upscale vibe. Little Ethiopia features some of the best east-African cuisine in the city, while the historic neighborhoods Park Mile and Oxford Square benefit from preservation orders designed to keep the surroundings quaint, homey, and charming.
Come discover Mid Wilshire, the LA neighborhood that has it all.
