Once the private airport of Howard Hughes, RUNWAY has been a home of innovation since 1940.
Hughes transformed this area into a breeding ground for aeronautic innovation. For more than 50 years, this is where the Hughes Aircraft Company manufactured helicopters, missiles, satellites, and planes, including the H-4 Hercules (a.k.a. Spruce Goose), which still holds the record as the world’s largest aircraft.
At right: The Lockheed L-049 Constellation, commissioned by Howard Hughes for TWA, changed the face of passenger air travel with interior-cabin pressurization that made it the first aircraft to fly above the clouds and avoid turbulent weather.
Hughes’ pioneering spirit lives on today at RUNWAY, the social core of Playa Vista, a thriving and intimate community of homes, creative offices, stores, restaurants, parks, and preserved wetlands.
When it comes to exceptional living, the details make the difference. Designed in partnership by Johnson Fain and the award-winning firm Newman Garrison + Partners your open-concept apartment at RUNWAY is defined by the combined use of natural and refined elements. Quartz and marble complement stained wood cabinetry and stainless steel finishes designed by award winning interior design firm Dianna Wong and Associates. The result: a blank canvas against which you can create the perfect vision of your home.
