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.
