Why You Should Be Building A Westwood ADU!

Updated: Nov 25, 2020


Westwood is an LA neighborhood that is both perfect for suburban family oriented residents as well as young professionals and college students. The neighborhood attracts a diverse crowd of residents, from locals to out-of-towners, students to entertainment professionals, and even celebrities. On a typical day, it’s normal to see students studying at a café or heading to class, locals eating out or enjoying a drink at a lively bar, and sometimes even red carpet events. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Building an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) in Westwood will increase your current property value by $160,000 - $300,000.

Why is the market for ADU’s trending In Westwood?

  1. Walkability And Transportation

Even though most residents in Westwood drive, many prefer living in a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. With top-notch infrastructure and a very walkable community, residents and out-of-towners can easily get around on foot. In fact, for many drivers, parking spots around Westwood areas close to UCLA and Westwood Village are few and difficult to find, especially during peak traffic hours. The community in Westwood has been working for years on a vision to further improve the walkability between UCLA and Westwood Village. Today, Westwood boasts a thriving urban and overall transit-friendly community, filled with cars, pedestrians, bikes, electric scooters, and public transportation.

  1. The Beach and Outdoor Activities

Westwood is the best of both worlds. Not only is it urban and modern but it is also just minutes away from some of the best beaches and recreation that Los Angeles County has to offer. Since Westwood is located near beach cities such as Malibu and Santa Monica as well as the Santa Monica Mountains, residents in Westwood have easy access to both water activities as well as hiking trails, bird watching, camping, and much more. There are also several neighborhood parks, including Westwood Park and Westwood Recreation Center, which features sports programs, dance and music classes, multiple outdoor sports courts, playgrounds, and seasonal camp programs.


Westwood Demographics

  • With a population of 49,000 people and 16,000 housing units that were built before 2010, it makes sense that ADU’s built after 2018 are so sought after due to their affordability as well as modern build.
