The future of Westwood Village

The future of Westwood Village . For years the Village has been caught between anti development vs. development. These changes affect surrounding communities around UCLA including  Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Westwood Hills, The Wilshire Corridor, etc. Learn more about what is being proposed for the area.

UCLA has a proposed project which designates five sites for new construction across the Westwood campus allowing the university to meet the capacity promised by its 2016-2026 Student Housing Plan .There are more than 47,000 residents within a 3 mile radius .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westwood,_Los_Angeles https://urbanize.la/post/ucla-plans-major-expansion-student-housing-capacity

Fortunately, through neighborhood councils, residents are talking about their desire to retain the small town feel of Westwood Village vs. the new proposals for more housing. In addition,the metro station purple line and the Olympic games are coming. The future of Westwood Village includes the Armand Hammer Museum expanding. Therefore, these developments will bring more traffic and interest in the area. https://la.curbed.com/2017/1/26/14387852/hammer-museum-expansion-wilshire-renovation

Firstly, Westwood Village is surrounded by million dollar properties on all sides. The Wilshire Corridor, Little Holmby, Westwood Hills, Bel Air, to name a few. There is a lot of wealth and disposable income in the area. This is very appealing to developers. There are UCLA students and faculty. Recently at a neighborhood homeowner meeting, (October 2017 HWPOA) a UCLA  representative stated that “most students don’t bring their cars to campus.” The UCLA representative states that the new housing would not increase traffic concerns . read more…http://dailybruin.com/2017/03/12/ucla-to-propose-new-dorms-apartments-to-match-enrollment-increase/ 

Secondly, The future of Westwood Village has been surrounded by controversy about development. The Casden project, developed  many years ago, received a lot of resistance to a large project in the Village. Once approved, it provided more housing, Trader Joe’s, parking , other retailers and restaurants for the Village. In addition, the former Bullocks location houses  “supersize” Ralph’s ,parking and City Target. The increase in parking spaces helped bring more residents to the Village. Conclusively, these are all very successful projects today. Specifically, neighbors have stated even more parking would be welcome! see more..http://dailybruin.com/2004/03/11/casden-project-approved/

Also noteworthy, developers see that it could be a larger booming retail, shopping, and restaurant mecca. Historically students have not been big spenders to support retail. Interestingly, the development of City Target and Ralph’s draws large numbers of students and residents. Not Surprisingly, Trader Joe’s and its neighboring fast food stores are thriving. The project’s parking lot  is a convenience.  Specifically residents have stated that part of the lack of shopping in other parts of Westwood is due to difficulty finding parking with ease .

Thirdly neighbors and community councils have mixed feelings about retaining the small town feel the village exudes. Some residents want many more restaurants.  Residents are concerned about high rise versus low rise, traffic, over development, parking etc. Community organizations are actively discussing the proposed projects.  learn more…http://dailybruin.com/2017/09/27/ucla-students-local-residents-argue-over-proposal-to-increase-housing/

Uniquely, Westwood Village still retains a small town feel. Thursdays draw in locals and people working in the community at the Farmers Market. Surprisingly the area still has historic buildings and many low rise buildings contributing to the era gone by landmarks that sustain memories of the past.

In summary, residents question how the new UCLA proposed 20 story tower would impact the village?  http://dailybruin.com/2017/10/04/westwood-residents-concerned-over-proposals-for-new-student-housing/   Lastly, How do you feel about all the proposed future changes? What would you like to see happen?

Buy a condo near UCLA

If you’re thinking about buying a condo near UCLA, there are several areas close to campus you should consider. To the West of campus are most of the apartments that are rentals mixed with condominiums. Over the past few years more newer construction apartments and condominiums are being built. These buildings vary within by streets that have older “student” apartment buildings. The newer construction condo’s are more expensive than the older buildings.  By the time you pay a minimum of approximately $3000 monthly for an individual 1 bedroom apartment which is $33,000 annually ,students may consider buying a condominium. Your monthly payments would be going towards ownership. At the end of your term at UCLA you may rent your condo for a monthly income, or choose to sell it. If you stay living in Los Angeles you may want to continue living there. Condominiums are not inexpensive in this central area of Los Angeles. If you are attending UCLA for a 3 year program it makes sense to buy a condo near UCLA . Down payments run 20% of the purchase price. Although there have been some bargains over the past few years under $500,000.00 purchase price, they are harder to find close to campus lately.

The average two bedroom condominium in the area is around $650,000-$850,000 . Depending on whether you choose a high rise that may have more amenities including security, pool and gym you will find  the additional homeowners dues can really vary. If you buy a condo near UCLA in a smaller building the HOA fee’s can be $350 to $800.00 average at the time of this article posting. There are more smaller buildings further distance from campus which require a car or riding the bus, scooter or bicycle. Just South of Wilshire Blvd there are many options for smaller buildings .

In addition ,if you want to buy a condo near UCLA you can choose among many high rises that line the approximately 1 mile stretch of the Wilshire Corridor. This is a strip of high rises close to campus. Some are within walking distance, some are further. There are several other high rises in the area. The high rises in the area average $500,000-$3,000,000. They will have higher HOA dues than the smaller buildings.  There are many foreign and American buyers who have held investment condominiums in the area for a long time. Depending on the amenities of the building affects price and HOA dues.
