This past Saturday, national real estate firm Brookfield Residential debuted Mason and Cleo, two new collections of 81 luxury flats in the Playa Vista community.

Mason, located near the corner of Bluff Creek and Village Drives, consists of brownstone flats with single-level residences and brick exteriors.  Individual units range from 1,816 to 2,658 square feet in size, each featuring 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2 to 3.5 baths, and a 2-car garage.  Prices begin in the mid $1,000,000s.

Cleo, located on an adjacent property along McConnell Avenue, consists of single-level dwellings ranging from 2,052 to 2,674 square feet in floor area.  Each unit features 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2.5 to 3.5 baths and 2-car, 3-bay private garages.  Prices begin in the high $1,000,000s.

Both Mason and Cleo were designed by KTGY Architecture & Planning.

This weekend also marked the opening of eight new parks in Playa Vista, including the Lawn, which bisects the Mason and Cleo communities, and the Link, a linear green space which connects several new housing developments.

The properties are located immediately south of Runway, the $260-million mixed-use development which serves as Playa Vista's commercial hub.

Mixed-Use Development Planned for Playa del Rey Faces Appeal

A controversial proposal to construct a residential-retail development in Playa del Rey received sign-offs from the City of Los Angeles earlier this year, but now faces an appeal to the L.A. City Planning Commission.

Legado Del Mar, a project of the Beverly Hills-based Legado Companies, would bring a low-rise apartment complex to a currently vacant property at 138 E.
