The Marina Is A Mixture of Old & New

Spurred on by its proximity to Silicon Beach, Marina del Rey is in the midst of a development boom. Having started in 2005-ish and hitting a slight speed bump with the big recession event in 2007-ish, development is full steam ahead, with as much as $700 million in rumored developments queuing up for the next several years.

The County Is Busy With Ambitious Infrastructure Improvements

The County is planning infrastructure projects, including an update for Burton Chace Park, improvements to the bike path through the Marina, traffic flow enhancements and much needed attention to the aging water and sewer system, as shown in the picture above. Marina development is part of a larger boom in the surrounding areas, including massive development at Playa Vista and an immense facelift at nearby LAX.

Old Options, New Options

With plenty of properties around from MdR's original development in the late 1960′s and into the 1970′s, deals also abound for both renting and purchasing. Most of these properties are beautifully maintained and offer generous square footage. Lots of newer condo and loft options are available, too. Some are near the water with stunning views and others are east of Lincoln near shopping and restaurants. More on the Marina lifestyle here. With spectacular Marina views, water sports, fitness venues, nightlife and family-friendly beaches, what's not to like? I lived in a beautiful highrise in the Marina for years. Every day felt like a vacation.
