RiverPark homebuyers have been drawn to these spacious Cypress Park residences for the contemporary, color-coordinated exteriors, the innovative three- to four-bedroom floor plans, the modern, energy-efficient features and the abundant family-oriented amenities nearby. But what has often caught their eye in the first place at this popular new-home community, which is down to its final few homes, is the exceptional, Downtown-close, transit-friendly location.
RiverPark’s setting, along the banks of the Los Angeles River in the Taylor Yard Village master plan, is ideal for anyone who works in the city, as well as Glendale and Eagle Rock—or anywhere in L.A. County, for that matter—because of its easy access to the 2, 5 and 110 freeways and the Metro Gold Line. New RiverPark homeowners Christine Bian and Tomas Pulmano chose the community in part because it offered the ideal location between their two employers in Glendale and Culver City.
Commutes will improve even more when the Regional Connector opens as forecasted in 2021, along with new tracks that will link the Gold, Blue, and Expo lines. This new Metro Rail extension will “provide a one-seat ride for travel across Los Angeles County,” according to CurbedLA.
For homeowners at RiverPark, the expanded Metro will mean more and easier access to Southern California employment centers and hotspots. “Metro expects that passengers making the full Azusa-to-Long Beach or East LA-to-Santa Monica trip can shave about 20 minutes off of their travel times once the Regional Connector opens,” says Metro Communications Manager Rick Jager.
The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, and Curbed have all called Cypress Park, home to RiverPark, one of L.A.’s hottest cities, and the restoration plans for an adjacent 42-acre riverfront site will only make it more desirable. According to Mayor Eric Garcetti, the “G2 Parcel” as it is known, will “open more than a mile of direct access to the river for local communities.” The city of L.A. recently hosted a Community Design Workshop, with a great turnout by the public, who came to share their ideas about the Taylor Yard G2 riverfront project.
Also of great interest to RiverPark owners is the Rio de Los Angeles State Park. Just adjacent to the community, the park provides countless opportunities for fun and recreation, while abundant shopping, dining, fitness and entertainment opportunities are minutes away in Atwater Village, Glassell Park and Highland Park.
This exciting Los Angeles community is a limited collection of 95 residences, of which only a few remain. Offering contemporary open-concept layouts, fenced patios and bonus rooms with en suite baths and private entries, RiverPark is a can’t-miss opportunity to own a new home in the perfect location. Shoppers are encouraged to visit the furnished models at 2581 Arvia Street #15, open daily from 10 am to 5 pm, and best reached from the corner of San Fernando Road.
