STRONG NEIGHBORHOOD FEEL
WILSHIRE VISTA is a diverse area comprised of approximately 1700 households, which are a mix of owners and renters, single family homes and multifamily buildings. Residents of Wilshire Vista tend to be long-term owners or renters, many choosing to raise their families here. Wilshire Vista is unique and charming due to its diversity of residents and home styles, including Spanish, Country English & Tudor.
Wilshire Vista’s proximity to Miracle Mile, the Grove and Museum Row make it an ideal location for those with active cultural interests. WV has a strong “neighborhood” feel fostered by an active neighborhood association that hosts a SUMMER BLOCK PARTY, typically in June and HALLOWEEN HAUNT in October.
Wilshire Vista was born in the 1920’s when population in Los Angeles was exploding. Wilshire Vista was named the “Cream of Wilshire”, a turnkey neighborhood with piping for gas and water, along with paved streets, sidewalks and decorative streetlights
