Playa Vista is celebrating new bus service to Culver City and 85 new homes coming onto the market.

On Dec. 14, Culver CityBus Line 4 extended its route down Jefferson Boulevard to include stops at E.A. Way and across the street from the new Runway at Playa Vista, connecting the retail and entertainment complex to the West Los Angeles Transit Center and the Expo Line light rail station at La Cienega Boulevard.

The free Playa Vista shuttle also expanded service hours and will run from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays, with plans to expanded demand-responsive service for residents.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, Playa Vista master developer Brookfield Residential will put the 30 three-story detached residences that make up its newly built Marlowe neighborhood on the market starting in the high $2-millions. The newly built Marlow homes, each offering up to 3,341 square feet, have four or five bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and two-car private garages.

Last month, 55 three-story homes that make up Playa Vista’s Everly neighborhood went on the market at $2 million or more each. Everly homes are each up to 2,449 square feet in size with three to five bedrooms, three-and-a-half to four baths, two car private garages and one guest space.

More than 150 homes in Playa Vista’s actively for sale Skylar and Camden neighborhoods have sold since mid-2014, with many of the buyers coming from tech and creative industries, a Brookfield spokesman said.

“Our previous collections of new homes are almost completely sold out,” said Brookfield Director of Marketing Alison Girard. “We have responded to market demand with neighborhoods that emphasize smart spaces, style and flexibility.”
