Mid-City is a highly diverse and dense urban neighborhood located in central Los Angeles, California. The area boasts a slew of historic single family homes and a multitude of multifamily apartment properties. While the borders of what is referred to as “Mid-City” may be disputed, one thing that remains undeniable is the array of unique real estate offered with renters occupying most of the housing space. Dive a little deeper into the area and you will find yourself immersed in a vast spectrum of beautifully built apartment properties constructed during the mid-century.
According to Los Angeles Times, the borders of Mid-City are north of the 10 freeway and south of Pico Boulevard with the east/west borders defined as Robertson Boulevard to the west and Crenshaw Boulevard to the east. Despite its location just a few miles west of Downtown, Mid-City maintains a suburban feel where home prices range between half a million dollars to well over $1 million, most of which are being purchased by Westside transplants being priced out of traditional coastal areas such as Venice, Marina del Rey, and even Mar Vista and Culver City. The come-one-come-all attitude of this area is clearly manifested in the emerging gentrification with regard to its retail shops and corner stores.
