Welcome to Miracle Mile
This centrally-located area of Los Angeles with both residential and retail spaces has a storied history as well as a bright future.
Miracle Mile offers many amazing opportunities for those living and working here. With historical neighborhoods, protected Art-Deco buildings, world-class museums, delicious restaurants, and retail establishments too, moving here means being in the middle of it all! Generally located between Highland to the east and Fairfax to the west, 3rd St to the north, and San Vicente to the south, this is the beating heart of LA. And don’t forget the proximity to LAX. Getting to the airport is a dream!
Creatives, families, young singles, and commuters.
Miracle Mile appeals to a diverse group of Angelenos. The central location provides a strategic point for those who work in creative fields. The proximity to Hollywood and Culver City studios, the ability to get West to Silicon Beach, and the access to the freeway to get you anywhere else mean you’ll be able to get to that next job or gig quickly. Not only does the abundance of housing provide opportunities for growing families but also recent college graduates and those starting out in their respective careers. With the Purple Line Extension getting closer to completion, Miracle Mile will only increase its desirability as a place to live since the subway will mean more people will be able to get around all of the Greater LA areas without having to step foot into a car.
Culture, community, access.
The wonderful museums on Museum Row offer the chance to see spectacular art, sculpture, and exhibits as amazing as any major city should. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the largest art museum in the western US with over 150,000 works spanning art from ancient times to the present. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, designed by the Pritzker-prize-winning Renzo Piano, will be the first large-scale museum in the nation dedicated to the art, science, craft, business, and history of film. Oh and don’t forget the marvelous restaurants and shopping at the Original Farmer’s Market and the Grove.
So much to do within walking distance.
You wouldn’t think it would be possible to see and do so much without a car in LA! The stretch of the original Miracle Mile (Wilshire between Fairfax and La Brea) gives you options for dining and drinks, shopping, entertainment, and even errand-running. What better way to experience the famed LA sunshine than by getting out of your car and taking a stroll.
Peak desirability and a wealth of housing options.
The housing stock in Miracle Mile includes just about any kind of living option you would want: single-family homes (most built in the first big LA housing boom of the 1920s-1930s), multifamily duplex/triplex, and fourplex (again many are charming Spanish buildings that are the epitome of Southern California living), condominiums and small-lot subdivisions (newer single-family structures that look more like condos/townhomes). While prices have gone up, mostly due to the realization of how central Miracle Mile is in LA, there are still opportunities for all socio-economic levels to buy in Miracle Mile. The HPOZ protected areas of Miracle Mile and Miracle Mile North are the most well known but there are many other pockets, especially south of Wilshire.
You’ll Fall in Love With
In a word everything!
There is so much to see and do in Miracle Mile you will never be bored. Museum Row alone, including the La Brea Tar Pits, will have you falling in love over and over. Restaurants to satisfy even the most hardened foodie. Shopping, dining, and movies at the Grove. A central location that makes an easy commute to the rest of the city—Culver City, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Downtown is close—and access to the beach areas is a quick jaunt down the freeway or streets like Venice or Washington. Once the subway extension is completed, all of what Greater LA has to offer will be at your fingertips.
