VF Developments, LLC, a minority and female owned and run company, has reintroduced “The Garth” a 1960s Mid Century Modern “dingbat” style six-unit multifamily community property to the highly desirable La Cienega Heights neighborhood, on the Westside of the city of Los Angeles, California after completing major renovations.
VF Developments, LLC, in joint venture with a private investor in August 2020, acquired the Los Angeles multifamily property located at 2034 South Garth Street, Los Angeles, California with the plan of repositioning and adding capital improvements to bring back its original 1960s modernism. Originally built in 1962, VF Development’s improvements included enhancements to exterior redesign to enhance the simple clean lines of mid-century modern architecture. These improvements include new wood composite fence, landscaping with bright white rocks and succulents, natural paint color hues, and completely restored and upgraded interior finishes. Victoria Vu, a renowned designer and managing partner of VF Developments, LLC and formerly a leading Halloween costume designer, carefully designed and restored the rental homes. These mid 1960s modern luxury rental homes renovations feature Ring doorbell cameras with keyless entry doors to spacious studios and three-bedroom floor plans with open living area to newly renovated kitchens with modern designer finishes and bathrooms. The kitchen is upgraded with white stone quartz countertops with contemporary custom self-closing cabinetry and high-end Samsung stainless-steel refrigerators with matching gas cooktop with oven and microwave. Stacked washer and dryers included inside each rental home with porcelain tiled bathtubs, and glass shower doors. Each dwelling also features central A/C cooling and heating with recessed lights with luxury style remote control blinds and sleek wood plank floors. The open concept living spaces open out to large patios or balconies with on-site parking.
Victoria Vu commented, “We are excited to reintroduce “The Garth” back into today’s market with enhanced exteriors and upgraded interiors. The 1960s in architecture was a transformational era marked by a shift in thinking and values with sleek lines, natural hues, pops of color, mixed materials and timeless style. We wanted to enhance and modernize the building with its straight lines and angled corners with landscaping inspired by Palm Springs. The 1960s had a major boom in supplying demand with these apartment homes with boxy silhouettes known locally as “dingbats”-now a hallmark of Los Angeles real estate.”
Rancho Cucamonga based TriWest Contractors completed the stunning renovations for the ownership group and Los Angeles based Drake Real Estate Group will provide property management and leasing services.
Anthony Garcia, owner of TriWest Contractors, noted, “We are proud to complete another renovation project for VF Developments and provide more affordable housing for the city of Los Angeles.”
