Fig & Fifty Walk Community Spotlight

September 19th, 2017

The Olson Company is proud to present a new community of contemporary upscale homes in Highland Park, Fig & Fifty Walk. Located within the Figueroa Corridor, this area in northeast LA is quickly becoming one of the trendiest neighborhoods in all of SoCal.

The Streetscape project of the Figueroa Corridor, which has been funded by a California Proposition 1C grant, has resulted in city led efforts which have beautified and improved the area on and around Figueroa Boulevard by providing many new amenities which are very friendly for pedestrians. This aligns perfectly with our mission at The Olson Company to offer communities made up of modern townhomes in urban settings that are very walkable, which is why we name our communities of homes “walks.” Recently, the Figueroa Corridor Partnership, through their administration of the Streetscape project, has created many new jobs, performed several exterior property checks, spent many hours patrolling the district with safety ambassadors to assist local law enforcement, removed millions of pounds of trash, trimmed trees, pressure washed sidewalks, and put in numerous hours cleaning the area, among many other accomplishments, making Highland Park a very desirable neighborhood in which to live.

Homeowners at Fig & Fifty Walk will instantly fall in love here, in part due to the lush green space, several walking, biking, and jogging trails, along with so many additional local amenities. This community will find appeal for career minded singles, young couples, and growing families alike. Highland Park has many great schools, along with endless eclectic shopping and dining venues that are perfect for all tastes and personal styles.

Highland Park is very unique to greater Los Angeles with so much history and individual personality, as it maintains a distinct culture which we have incorporated into the landscape and architectural design at Fig & Fifty Walk. In its own way, Highland Park is reminiscent of a small community with an urban flair, as there are many local coffee shops, stylish boutiques, and local restaurants just minutes from your door when you own a townhome at Fig & Fifty Walk.

A variety of floorplans are available at the three story homes of Fig & Fifty Walk. These include two to three bedrooms and between 1,008 and 2,110 square feet, allowing for spacious floor plans which are very versatile, so that your new home will adapt to your ever changing lifestyle.

Give us a call at (562) 370-9502 to schedule an appointment today to tour the construction site and to meet with us to discover why the home of your dreams may be at Fig & Fifty Walk, or visit our website for full details on floorplans, availability, stylings, and amenities. http://figandfiftywalk.com/
