What’s the Point?

If creativity had a headquarters, it would be Los Angeles. And within the creative heart of West L.A., Angelenos are gathering at an ideal new space with award-winning office, retail and multifamily experiences – all converged around a lively open-air plaza. Designed to meet the highest quality standards, West Edge delivers the indoor/outdoor lifestyle beloved by Southern Californians.

West Edge: Style and balance for live-create-play

Designed by Gensler, A.C. Martin and Rios, West Edge spans 216,000 square feet of dynamic office space, 600 luxury apartments, a full-service natural grocer, and a vibrant one-half-acre open-air plaza complete with al fresco dining, boutique retail and studio fitness options.

Hines, Affinius and Philena Properties partnered to develop this transformative environment, situated in the heart of West L.A. with easy access to highways and public transit.

Californians living in the Residences at West Edge now come home to the neighborhood’s best amenities, including a resort-style pool, resident-only co-working space, lounge and billiards rooms, chef’s kitchen, yoga deck, pet spa, and private rooftop terraces with stunning city views.

Next door, modern workplaces spark engagement within a LEED Platinum office building, already 100 percent pre-leased to Riot Games and Hines. Every level of the terraced eight-floor building is flooded with natural light, thanks to 11-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows made with vision glass. Connectivity is surefire, too, with internet infrastructure earning WIRED Platinum certification from WiredScore.

Enriching community, by design

At the center of L.A.’s growing technology, entertainment and media district, West Edge brings together shoppers, diners, professionals and neighbors alike, all in a beautifully curated community.

Across the plaza and throughout inviting terraces and interiors, West Edge exudes a sense of care for people—as evidenced in part by its WELL Gold certification. It also provides a meaningful portion of its residences—121 units—for affordable/workforce housing.

But perhaps the most vivid sign of West Edge’s commitment to community is its thoughtful lineup of socially-minded events like the Art Walk, Mural Fest and a popular dog adoption event—all ever-changing and open to the public.

Welcome to the future of prized mixed-use real estate

Today, West Edge is substantially complete, having welcomed its first residents in May 2023. Meanwhile, improvements for office/retail space continue, with staggered move-ins planned through 2024.

Already West Edge is gaining broader recognition, too, winning the Westside Urban Forum’s Westside Prize, USA Property Award, and garnering the coveted Multihousing News Excellence award. West Edge has also been featured in the NY Times and Monocle podcasts.

Looking ahead, expect this prime live/create/play example to set the standard for mixed-use developments in bustling urban areas across the U.S., and beyond.
