Studio City is a neighborhood located in Los Angeles, California. Located in the south eastern edge of the San Fernando Valley, it is named after the CBS Studio Center that was established in the area by film producer, Mack Sennett in 1927 and its name still reflects a major cinematic focus of this community. Bordered on the west by Sherman Oaks, Toluca Lake and Universal City on its east, the Santa Monica Mountains on its south and Valley Village on its north, its central location makes it one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
With the location and central proximity to 4 major motion picture and television studios and countless production companies, Studio City is an ideal place to live and work for residents in the entertainment industry; actors, producers, executives and emerging talent alike. Easily accessible to the Westside by its main arteries, Laurel and Coldwater Canyon, and to Hollywood by Cahuenga Pass, many residents choose to live in this quieter, more relaxed tree-lined suburban enclave and make the daily commute over the hill.
The main commercial thoroughfare, Ventura Blvd, runs east to west through the city and divides its two main residential areas; with the valley portion sitting north of Ventura while the hillside neighborhood lies to the south. Single-family homes, condos, and town homes are costlier than the remainder of Los Angeles; however, the range is extensive; from large gated estates in the hills to smaller starter homes in the flats. The median home value in Studio City is $1.2M.
Studio City is the perfect place for entertainment professionals seeking a more low-key, paparazzi-free lifestyle and families looking for a respite from the fast urban pace of Los Angeles. Ventura Blvd, affectionately known as “sushi row” for its high density of sushi restaurants, is the city’s main restaurant, bar and retail hub. Both quaint and trendy at the same time, the boulevard is lined with a multitude of hip boutiques in equal measure to large chain stores, a diverse array of dining options and nightlife spots. Studio City’s appeal lays in its stylish small-town allure while keeping step with its westside neighbors on all things trending; espresso bars, outdoor cafes, yoga studios, vegan dining and organic soft-serve desert shops dot the landscape as frequently as they do on the westside. It’s the Robertson Blvd. of the Valley.
Since 1970, Studio City has played host to the 2-day bi-annual Rotary Art Shows in May and October which attracts artists and large crowds of art lovers alike. The nearby Universal Studios amusement park, studio tour, shopping walk, and Amphitheater are high on the list of must-sees for locals and tourists alike. Tucked into Coldwater Canyon is Tree People Park, an endeavor to bring conservancy, technology, and connection to the natural spaces that coexist and sustain our urban areas. The Mark Taper Amphitheater, located within the park, is a unique venue for theater, lectures, and concerts.
