Why Playa del Rey in Silicon Beach is the New Hot LA Neighborhood

March 8, 2018

If you’ve been hearing a lot about Silicon Beach and its Playa del Rey neighborhood recently, there’s good reason for that, as they’re currently on their way to becoming one of the most popular areas in LA. If the area’s new to you, though, this is what you need to know – because it’s the perfect time to move there, before demand eclipses pricing and availability.

What is Silicon Beach, exactly?

As the name might suggest, Silicon Beach is Silicon Valley’s younger, southern cousin. Although it’s been known as Silicon Beach since at least 2012, and has been rated as an up-and-coming tech area, its popularity has spiked in recent years as more major companies and startups have made it their home base (Snap Inc. included). Now, with over 500 tech startup companies claiming residency in Silicon Beach, receiving collectively over $3 billion in funding (six times that of 2012), the area’s explosive growth is impossible to deny.

What makes Playa del Rey so special?

Silicon Beach is split into several major neighborhoods: Playa Vista, Playa del Rey, Westchester, Santa Monica, and Venice (as well as several other, smaller neighborhoods). While each has its own appeal, Playa del Rey offers a premium location; if the name didn’t give it away, it’s located right on the beach. Beach living, combined with the bustling activity and growth of being right in the middle of Silicon Beach, makes Playa del Rey a unique and genuinely exciting place to live. As a bonus, you’re just a stone’s throw from LAX, making it an ideal location for entrepreneurs and other individuals who find themselves traveling often for work.

If the area’s so popular, it must be impossible to find an apartment, right?

Wrong. Even better, you can live in a resort-style apartment community with luxury amenities at a competitive price. Decron has three apartment communities to choose from in Silicon Beach, including one of our premier locations, Playa del Oro – the Gateway to Silicon Beach™.  This beautiful apartment community offers a living experience like no other, with true resort-style living supported by gorgeous grounds, a sky lounge, two luxury swimming pools, a spa and sauna, a fitness center, free weekly yoga classes, a billiards room, and much more. Located just a few miles from Playa del Oro, you’ll find two other fantastic Silicon Beach apartment communities, also offering luxury, resort-style living experiences: Playa Marina and Playa Pacifica.

Act soon, though, because availability is limited, and the area’s only growing in popularity by the day. Just choose the Silicon Beach apartment community that looks right for you, and give us a call – we’d love to give you a tour!
