Runway Playa Vista is California living, shopping, and working – all in one beautiful place.
Once known as the land where Howard Hughes built his aerospace empire, Playa Vista is now the land of tech empires — Facebook, YouTube, google, yahoo, Microsoft, Belkin to name a few. And Hughes’ private runway has new life as Runway, Playa Vista’s lively central district. Runway at Playa Vista is the centerpiece of Playa Vista, the first new community in West Los Angeles in 50 years and wildly popular today as a place to live and work. Only 1.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Runway is the social hub of Playa Vista with its state-of-the-art cinema, unique restaurants and bars, beauty and fitness venues retail shops and everyday conveniences such as grocery and drug stores, banks and coffee cafes. Runway also offers a limited number of apartments and office space for discerning tenants who want to live and work in a lively urban district.
Currently at 7,000 residents, Playa Vista will soon have a population of 13,000 as a host of new condominiums, apartments and single family homes are occupied. The community fulfills residents’ expectations with beautiful neighborhood parks, a K-5 public school, a city library and a resort spa and community center. Another 25,000 people work in Playa Vista, making the community a hometown for about 40,000, all of whom can easily walk to Runway. Another 250,000 people are within Runway’s market reach.
Living at Runway is ground zero at Playa Vista. Runway Apartment's limited collection of 420 apartments has something for everyone with one and two-bedroom Stacked Flats, Studios and Loft/Mezzanine residences from 588 to 1,300 square feet.

A large public park completes the Runway way of life.
Runway’s carefully selected mix of retailers ranges from fine providers of every day services and top drawer beauty and fitness studios. Cedars-Sinai has brought its world class medical services to Runway as part of an ongoing initiative to create convenient access to its high-quality and patient-centered services close to where people live and work.
