Palms Reviews

All Categories
Palms is a fairly quiet, West Los Angeles community consisting mostly of small to medium sized apartment buildings with an ethnically diverse mix of professionals and families. It is located between Culver City, Mar Vista, Century City and Cheviot Hills. The Metro stop at the Palms/Exposition/National intersection is a convenient transportation option for heading west to Santa Monica or east to Downtown L.A. and beyond. There are some buildings where you can still find rent control, if anyone will ever move out. Many new residential buildings and businesses have popped up in Palms since 2013. I recently went to a community event to paint a large mural along Overland Avenue where many of the local residents came out to help. The Palms Neighborhood Council was pleasantly surprised with the turnout and the event finished hours before expected! The longer I live in Palms, the more I love the neighborhood and I do not plan on leaving anytime soon.

Palms is a great, convenient neighborhood to live in. With easy access to the Expo Line metro, residence are able to easily get to Downtown LA or the beach at Santa Monica within 30 minutes. Lots of grocery stores and restaurants, and proximity to Culver City is a huge plus.
I'm located just off the 10 Freeway on Overland so there's easy access to all of Los Angeles and the West Side. There's a Coffee Bean right down the street too so I'm very happy to have my coffee there instead of at a Starbucks. It's a great up and coming area for young people with restaurants and bars.
