Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - FRONT PAGE -

Playa Vista was once home of the air­field where Howard Hughes led the way in aero­nau­ti­cal in­no­va­tion in the 1930s. Now it’s where de­vel­oper Brook­field Res­i­den­tial is cre­at­ing a com­mu­nity to fur­ther tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion to­day. Sit­u­ated in Los An­ge­les’ West­side, also known as Sil­i­con Beach, Playa Vista is an evolv­ing com­mu­nity of ul­tra-cool homes, cre­atives’ work spa­ces, shops, restau­rants, bars, parks and event venues for the city’s techie en­trepreneurs and pro­fes­sion­als.

More than 10,000 peo­ple now live and work at Playa Vista, with dozens of tech­nol­ogy firms set­ting up of­fice at The Cam­pus, its com­plex of of­fices and recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties. Farm­ers’ mar­kets, speak­ers, char­ity yoga fundrais­ers and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties bring peo­ple to­gether.

Jewel Homes are the com­mu­nity’s most ex­clu­sive res­i­dences, with five of the 14 prop­er­ties on sale. With in­door and out­door en­ter­tain­ing spa­ces, these three-storey houses boast lux­u­ri­ously de­tailed fin­ishes, the de­vel­oper says. The largest 4,500sqft homes are priced at about US$4.5 mil­lion.

“Playa Vista, lo­cated in the heart of Sil­i­con Beach, has created a live/work/play at­mos­phere,” says Kris Za­cuto of Hil­ton & Hy­land, an af­fil­i­ate of Christie’s In­ter­na­tional Real Es­tate. “With a grow­ing tech in­flu­ence, Playa Vista is an en­vi­ron­ment that can cater to buy­ers look­ing for a lux­ury res­i­dence, a built-in lifestyle, who want to live where they work.”
