Curbed – Freeways: How did Beverly Hills successfully rise…

July 24th, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-07-23 at 6.18.20 PM.pngHow did Beverly Hills successfully rise up against a plan to run a freeway through their city while Boyle Heights’s efforts failed? Bev Hills had the money to commission studies that supported an argument against the plan; Boyle Heights did not, and today it has six major freeways cutting through, each a reminder that “just because a highway ended up in part of a city doesn’t mean that part of the city wants it there.” [CityLab, image via Sterling Davis]

Curbed – Curbed Comaparisons: What You Can Rent for $1,300 in Los Angeles Right Now

July 23rd, 2014

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for around a certain dollar amount in various LA ‘hoods. Is one man’s studio another man’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Our friends at Zumper have helped us out with five listings within $ 100 of today’s price: $ 1,300.

↑ Get a load of that closet space! This one bedroom in Pico-Robertson might not have a walk-in, but that wall of drawers and doors is a nice consolation prize. On-site laundry, parking, and, yes, those are actual wood hardwood floors. Only downer: no pets allowed. The rent is $ 1,275.

↑ This one-bedroom unit at the border of Adams-Normandie and Exposition Park has a new kitchen, new plumbing—new everything, it seems like—and hardwood floors all packed in to 600 square feet. Sure, it’s attached to another, bigger unit, but you get garage parking for one car (or maybe storage for a bunch of your stuff, if you’ve got no car) and it’s just a few blocks north of the Expo Line’s Expo/Western stop. The rent is $ 1,200 a month.

↑ Ladies and gentlemen, we have a dishwasher. That’s something to be excited about, especially in these classy 1920s-era buildings. This cat-friendly, fifth-floor, one-bedroom apartment in Ktown comes with on-site laundry, a walk-in closet, and all the utilities included with the rent. What’s the catch? If you have a car, you have to park it on the street. The rent is $ 1,350.

↑ This East Hollywood one-bedroom apartment is just around the corner from the Kaiser Permanente at Sunset and Vermont, so if you get sick often or are prone to accidents, this might be the place for you. It’s got a spacious kitchen and what appears to be a wall-mounted air-conditioning unit—a step up from the swamp cooler, but not quite that sweet, sweet central air. The unit comes with gated parking. Rent is $ 1,400.

↑ It’s BYORefrigerator at this Miracle Mile one-bedroom and that’s kind of a pain, but look at how pretty the place is. Those “original real hardwood floors” and all that nice tile in the bathroom—it’s powerfully charming. The unit has ceiling fans and the building has on-site laundry, but this is a street-parking-only situation, and that can be especially rough in this neighborhood. The rent is $ 1,350.
