The Metro, built in 2003, is a striking Art Deco style development considered to be a monumental focal point of Playa Vista's upscale Crescent Park District. These residences are a tribute to the heritage of Southern California architecture of the 1930s and 1940s. Dramatic facades frame the elliptical end of Crescent Park. Architecturally, The Metro reflects the glamour and spirit of Hollywood's golden age. Elaborately detailed elements, such as fine fretwork patterns, are accented by various shades of alabaster and cream on the building exteriors.
The Metro Condominiums offers 121 units on 4 floors with two, three and four bedroom plans ranging from 1,200 square feet up to 3,700 square feet. Many incorporate strikingly unusual details, such as two story living rooms, small gallery libraries, private decks and fashionable master suites. Most of the single and multi-level luxury homes offer two bedrooms and two baths, some with downstairs dens. Many residents will enjoy excellent views, including the vista of Crescent Park, the restored Freshwater Marsh or the skyline of West Los Angeles.
The building offers amenities at the Center Pointe Club, where residents can enjoy a range of amenities from the Jr. Olympic size pool with solar heating to the small oval shaped pool for children. A spa, fitness center, free weights, showers, business center with computers, and a twenty three seat theater are all available to residents at Crescent Walk.
Other amenities include private meeting rooms, library, and a community entertainment hall with a full kitchen, bar, pool table and flat screen TV, and barbecues. A newly built elementary school is nearby. Crescent Park is also across the street with a putting green, fountains and a lounging area.
