If you’ve ever built in Los Angeles County, you probably know that one of the main challenges you may be facing at the beginning is not knowing where the best areas for development are.
While there are many resources out there which provide specific information at the local level, researching each of them can be very time consuming. That’s why it would be extremely helpful to have an up-to-date comprehensive zoning resource covering the entire county which would allow you to see all areas of development.
This is where our L.A. zoning map comes in. Last updated in May, it’s the most up-to-date resource of its kind available at the county level.
The map is meant to help developers and investors alike quickly understand where it’s best to build and what zoning groups there are in any areas of interest: single family, multifamily, commercial, industrial, etc. Just look up any property on the map to see how its area is zoned:
If you are a PropertyShark subscriber you’ll also have access to the mini report available for any L.A. property. The report provides an overview of the property as well as the zoning code, its description, and a link to the county’s zoning site.
The mini report will also include a link to the full property report, where you can find extensive property information ranging from square footage, year built, and number of bedrooms, to ownership data, recent sales, and much more. Check out our sample report to see exactly what type of data is available for L.A. properties.
