The old saying, “there are no coincidences,” is easy to believe when you hear Carl Choi’s homebuying story. “My wife and I used to drive around to check out listings,” says Carl. “We discovered RiverPark’s first phase by accident when we drove past and saw new construction.”
The exciting collection of 95 contemporary new homes in Cypress Park is now almost sold out, with August completion dates scheduled for the final few residences. Buyers must hurry if they don’t want to miss their chance to own at this Downtown-close community. Our priority mailing list will be sending updates over the next weeks and interested shoppers should sign up here to stay informed.
Carl and his wife, Min Lim, have been married for almost two years and recently made the decision to purchase Plan B at RiverPark. They are moving in soon — along with their goldendoodle puppy — and look forward to taking advantage of living in the 17-acre Taylor Yard Village master plan. “We love the fact that the community is right next to the Los Angeles River,” states Min, “and there are huge restoration plans, including a bridge that will connect Cypress Park to Elysian Valley.”
Choi and Lim, who both grew up in the South Bay, appreciate the convenience of RiverPark’s central location. “I own an experiential studio that is based in the Downtown Arts District, Min works in the South Bay as an ER nurse, and our friends are scattered around Los Angeles and the South Bay,” explains Carl.
They also love that the community caters to their needs today and has a bright future. “It’s definitely got a family vibe and has a lot of potential for future development in the area, as a new generation moves peripherally from Downtown L.A.,” observes Carl. “We are also looking forward to the Metro Rail extension that’s under construction!” RiverPark is already convenient to the 2, 5 and 110 freeways and the Lincoln/Cypress Metro Gold Line station.
The residence the couple chose perfectly suits their lifestyle, with the space and style they were seeking — especially when they considered whether to purchase brand new or resale. “We weighed the pros and cons of fixing up an older home versus buying new construction,” continues Min. “RiverPark offered a beautiful three-story home to our liking and within our budget. The ceilings are high and we were attracted to the large open space that connects the living area to the kitchen. We were also able to add a small second-floor powder room underneath the stairs.”
Buying a new home in Los Angeles at RiverPark
RiverPark’s upcoming sell-out is the result of Los Angeles homebuyers being captivated by the community’s exceptional location and its spacious, contemporary floorplans — offering three to four bedrooms, up to 2,000 square feet, energy-efficient features and private fenced yards.
And then there are the extensive recreational and family-friendly amenities both within the community and nearby. Owners are sure to appreciate RiverPark’s pedestrian-friendly streets and the central paseo that offers 70,000 square feet of scenic walkways and landscaped areas, as well as the 40-acre Rio de Los Angeles State Park just next door. Lighted tennis and basketball courts, a lighted baseball diamond and soccer field, pedestrian trails and a children’s play area with splash pad are just a few of the amenities offered at the park. A year-round schedule of classes and fitness programs includes softball, tennis, MMA, Sports Camp and yoga, for both children and adults.
Cypress Park is considered one of the hottest cities in L.A., and RiverPark puts homebuyers right in the heart of the city’s growth and promise. Taylor Yard Village is a unique, public-private joint venture with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority at the center of the City’s L.A. River Restoration project. A 51-mile greenway corridor is planned along the riverbanks, and almost 25,000 square feet of new retail is coming soon. Existing shopping and dining are abundant in Cypress Park and adjacent neighborhoods including Atwater Village, Glassell Park and Highland Park, while nearby are three pilot schools and two independent charter schools for students in grades 9-12.
