Traffic is always bad in Los Angeles, but I have not noticed any increase in traffic due to new constructions.
Feel free to contact me directly at (310) 717-1321 or JamieTian@RodeoRE.com if you have any other questions or if you would like me to send you a list of available properties in the Mar Vista and West Los Angeles area that fit your budget and search criteria.
I have lived on the Westside for a very long time. Yes, there are areas of new construction in all areas of the city. One new concept for new construction is mixed-use. Playa Vista and the new Stella Apartments are mixed use. Combining residential and commercial in one structure or walking distance from the residents. That cut down on auto traffic. But the realty the traffic is a nightmare in all parts of the city. People have to commute for business, school, shopping and etc. The Metro may help but as large as L.A. is we are land locked and a car city. I am not sure what the alternative is to driving in this city. We need our cars. I do not have a crystal ball but I think the future maybe more traffic.

To be perfectly frank, I think traffic has increased almost everywhere in Los Angeles. I hope the Metro and our other efforts for mass transit will help to lessen this .

Did you know that Playa Vista is the only place in the Westside that charges Mello Roos taxes on all properties. This tax can be as high or higher than the current homeowners' association dues, and not always specified by the selling agent.
