Historic Neighborhoods with a Bright Future
From the late 1800s to early 1910s, African Americans began relocating to the area, mostly organizing around landholdings of Los Angeles pioneer Biddy Mason. The African American population continued to grow into the 1940s, and countless Jazz nightclubs lined South Central Avenue leading to LA's status as one of the preeminent homes for jazz music. In the 1990s, the neighborhood shifted to becoming a hub for Latino immigrants, with many being drawn by low rents and central City location. With the addition of the Metro Blue Line on the Washington Boulevard corridor, this has spurred lot of growth and a community plan recently adopted by the L.A. City Council hopes to revitalize the neighborhood for future generations.
One of the largest benefits of living in South LA is the ease of access to the rest of the city. Only a few minutes away from Downtown, LAX, and most major freeways, its easy to see why residents can enjoy most of what Los Angeles has to offer without driving too far. In recent years, there has been a surge of development surrounding the new Los Angeles Rams stadium that plans to bring plenty of new businesses and attractions to South LA. For those looking to invest in a bright piece of LA's future, South LA is the place for you.
Considered by many to be epicenter of the next real estate boom, South LA has seen immense growth in the past decade and has become a great option for new residents who prefer life in the big city.
