For its sunny weather and stunning terrain, Los Angeles is a desirable place to live for people all over the country. Known for being the land of the single family home, Los Angeles is quickly embracing the idea of density.

Where demand is exceeding the supply of housing, developers are faced with an inability to build outwards due to environmental constraints. For new developments in LA, as per BuzzBuzzHome, the median price for a condo is $1.445 million and the median rental price is $2,945 a month. The housing shortage has caused a hike in pricing, but as supply increases, prices are expected to decrease respectively. Various Los Angeles neighborhoods like Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood are changing as more high-rise residential buildings are being built.
