Are you trying to find the best luxury apartment complex in downtown Los Angeles? Trying to decide which apartment is right for you can be a daunting task, with so many options available! To help guide you, we’ve put together this comprehensive list of our favorite luxury communities in downtown Los Angeles. Whether you’re looking for a pet-friendly community, an apartment building with a porte-cochere, or a private park on the eighth floor, we’ve got you covered.

Tips for Finding the Perfect a Luxury Apartment

Before moving to Los Angeles, you’ll need to choose where you’re going to live. And while there are tons of amazing communities here in LA, finding the one that best fits your needs can be stressful. However, understanding the factors that make up your perfect home can help you make a confident decision. Here are a few things you should consider when comparing luxury apartments in downtown Los Angeles:

  • Consider Cost: If you can’t afford it, there’s no reason to look! Move on and find a place within your budget that can give you what you need.
  • Look at Location: How close will you be to work? Do you want to be within walking distance of bars and restaurants? Would you rather be closer to the beach or the mountains? What’s the neighborhood like?
  • Weigh the Amenities: Make sure you’re getting the best “bang for your buck.” Apartment communities love to talk about their amenities, but if you’ll be paying for a bunch of services you don’t need, you might want to look elsewhere.
  • If you don’t know, ASK: If you have specific needs, like a pet-friendly community that accepts your dog’s breed, that aren’t listed on a complex’s website, don’t be afraid to ask about it. This can help weed out the “losers,” so you can find your perfect fit.
