Olive Walk in La Mirada Spotlight

October 25th, 2016


Located in historic La Mirada, California, Olive Walk is one of the newest communities of townhomes by The Olson Company coming available in the spring of 2017. Residents will enjoy the very best of modern living in an area with deep historical roots. By bringing the best of both contemporary and classic influences together, Olive Walk truly is a gateway to urban style and sophistication within the historical context of La Mirada.

La Mirada has been recognized as one of the “Best Places To Live” by CNN Money Magazine. La Mirada has a rich history in olive oil production and also citrus fruit harvesting and distribution. Andrew McNally, known for founding the map publishing company Rand McNally, purchased land in the late 19th century that included what is now La Mirada. He established Windermere Ranch as an olive grove and citrus farm then turned that over to his daughter and son-in-law. The ranch became famous for producing what was often said at the time to be the finest olive oil in the United States. As homes were built in the community, the McNally family asked that the new homeowners each plant an olive tree in their yard. Today one olive grove remains on the campus of Biola University in La Mirada, which is considered to be a historic landmark, as these olive trees date back to the 1890’s.

It is this rich and storied tradition that Olson Homes seeks to honor through the naming and development of Olive Walk. Today, La Mirada is home to many corporations, including U.S. Foodservice and Staples, which, along with Biola University, provide ample employment opportunities. There are many eagerly anticipated community events each year in La Mirada, including children’s carnivals, concerts under the stars, the polar bear plunge, and a father-daughter dance, just to name a few. La Mirada boasts an award winning theater which brings a wide variety of entertainment to the community. Performing musicals and Broadway shows, along with teen oriented productions and concerts, the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts is one of the area’s true gems.

Olive Walk is situated in a prime location in Los Angeles County, California. It is within just thirty minutes to downtown LA, forty-five minutes to the beach, and an hour and half to the mountains. The two story paired and single family homes in Olive Walk range up to 2,200 square feet of living space and have up to 4 bedrooms and 3 baths.
