Located about five miles west of downtown Los Angeles, Wilshire Park is a neighborhood of 527 properties that has maintained a high degree of historic integrity: 74% of the neighborhood's homes are "contributing structures" to the HPOZ. Wilshire Park grew quickly after its first house appeared in 1907, spurred by the expansion of the downtown business district, new choices in methods of transportation, the development of Wilshire Boulevard, social change precipitated by war, and a speculative boom in the late 1910s and early 1920s. By 1926, there was a home on almost every lot. The houses vary in architectural styles, ranging from the early 20th century Craftsman, Prairie, and Mediterranean derivatives to Colonial Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, and Los Angeles' largest collection of Dutch Colonial Revival. The Wilshire Park HPOZ also includes a range of housing types, from large two-story homes with expensive improvements to one-story bungalows. The HPOZ was adopted by the City Council in 2008. The zip code for this area is 90048.
Wilshire Park is a trending HPOZ for ADUs because it is a wonderful combination of big city living paired with a neighborhood feel, one of the few areas in LA to offer both. Residents take advantage of the many museums, shops, and restaurants it has to offer. But the area also has quiet residential streets, open spaces, and beautiful parks, filled with locals who like getting a taste of both worlds.This densely populated and high-trafficked neighborhood is a busy mix of residential, commercial, and community spaces smack in the middle of central Los Angeles. With so many important LA spots to hit in a single neighborhood, spending time in Hancock Park-Wilshire means really packing it in. You’ll never run out of new museum exhibits, but the fun certainly doesn’t stop there.
