Westwood

Located south of Holby Hills, Westwood has Brentwood on its western boundary, Century City to the east and Cheviot Hills to the southeast. It developed on part of the 3,300-acre Wolfskill Ranch which was bought for development by Arthur Letts. Similar to Holby Hills, Westwood was developed in 1927 by Letts’ son-in-law Harold Janss who intended the area to be dedicated to residential and business lots surrounding a retail village. That same year, the UCLA broke ground after outgrowing its Hollywood location, building Royce Hall, the new Chemistry Building, Physics-Biology Building and the library in Westwood.

Over the next two decades, Westwood developed a diversity of architecturally important structures and homes showcasing Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial, Classic Revival, Post War Modern and French Regency styleswhich add to the eclectic charm of the area today. Westwood still hosts many movie premieres in its historic theatres such as the Village Theater, with its Spanish Mission-style architecture dating back to 1931. The nearby 1937 Bruin Theatre is best known for its groundbreaking “marquee” canopy that once advertised the latest Fox Studios film entertainment in a blaze of electric lights.

Known as a student-friendly area, Westwood Village is an easy neighborhood to navigate on foot, giving it a friendly small-town air. Homes range from single-family residences and bungalows to condos and townhomes. While Westwood is predominantly an affluent suburb of Los Angeles, it has enclaves of Middle Eastern expats who operate family-owned Lebanese and Persian restaurants in the area. This provides a broad spectrum of international culture and cuisine with Falafel King and the Sunnin Lebanese Café as much a part of the community as Stan’s Donuts and the Westside Tavern.
