Final New Homes Announced in Playa Vista

More than four decades after the heirs of Howard Hughes decided to redevelop more than 1,000 acres of land below the Westchester Bluffs, the master-planned Playa Vista community is entering the home stretch.

Last month, homebuilder Taylor Morrison announced Encore, the final new-home development in Playa Vista. Plans call for 14, multi-story single-family homes, each featuring four or five bedrooms and two-car garages. Sales prices start at $3.1 million.

The property is located at 12666 W. Millennium Drive.

The project joins a handful of other for-sale housing developments in Playa Vista, including Jewel, The Collection, and Seabluff.

In its prior incarnation, Playa Vista was a private airfield and manufacturing facility for Hughes Aircraft, which built the iconic Spruce Goose in a cavernous hangar located just north of present-day Jefferson Boulevard.

Today, the Spruce Goose Hangar is home to the Los Angeles area offices of Google, a sign of the new industries that dominate the neighborhood today: entertainment and technology. Besides Google, companies such as Electronic Arts, Facebook, Microsoft, and IMAX Corporation also have offices in Playa Vista.
