Area Overview


Westlake, located right outside Downtown’s employment hub, is a bustling neighborhood with a young professional demographic. Westlake is adjacent to other no-table neighborhoods, including Echo Park, Pico Union, Downtown and Koreatown. The neighborhood is extremely dense, with endless streets lined with small businesses. MacArthur Park, designated as the City of Los Angeles Cultural Monument #100, is located in Westlake and is adjacent to the Metro’s Westlake/MacArthur Park Station, which affords access to the Red and Purple lines. Those lines provide public transportation toward Downtown, North Hollywood and toward Koreatown, with West Side extensions projected to be completed in 2027. 

Westlake is located in Central Los Angeles just to the east of Koreatown and south of the neighborhoods of Silverlake and Echo Park. It is slightly north of Downtown with boundaries defined by some of LA’s oldest and most well-traveled roads — the 101 Hollywood Freeway, the 110 Harbor Freeway, West Olympic, Virgil avenue, Temple Street and Glendale Boulevard
