Marina del Rey
An unincorporated seaside district in Los Angeles that has a rich history dating back over two centuries. The community has undergone so much change throughout the years that it’s difficult to imagine that the area used to be referred to as a swamp, frequented primarily by fishermen and duck hunters. However, thanks to the work of several key developers, including M.C. Wicks, Louis Mesmer, Moses Sherman, and Abraham Lurie, Marina del Rey is now known as one of the nation’s most affluent harbor communities, with the world’s largest man-made small craft harbor at its center. The tech startup migration from Silicon Valley neighborhoods such as Palo Alto and Menlo Park has already made its mark on Los Angeles’ westside neighborhoods with the rise of Silicon Beach. In recent years, the region has grown to include over 500 tech-friendly businesses, with Marina del Rey being the center of all the action. After all, it’s surrounded by Venice, Playa Vista, Culver City, and Playa del Rey — all of which have experienced a boost in residential real estate prices over the past year. Since a large part of DTLA’s growth is dependent on revenue from business and financial professionals living in the area, Marina del Rey is in a similar position as more entrepreneurs and tech employees gravitate towards Silicon Beach neighborhoods. Right in the center of LA’s seaside, in between Venice Beach and Playa del Rey, Marina del Rey is renowned for its beautiful waterfront and classic California laid-back attitude.
