Geography[edit] The neighborhood is bounded by Olympic Boulevard on the north, La Cienega Boulevard on the west, Pico Boulevard on the south, and Cresecent Heights Boulevard on the east.[2]

History[edit] The South Carthay area became a portion of the City of Los Angeles on February 28, 1922.[3] Residential development in the area began during the early 1930s on land that previously grew produce for Ralphs markets.[4] Greek developer Spyros George Ponty worked with architect Alan Ruoff[5] to design 147 modest Mediterranean-style homes in the area. [6] While the builder's influence is found in Westwood, Norwalk, Beverly Hills, South-Central Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, South Carthay's Spanish Colonial Revival homes represents one of his earliest legacies.[7] All of the 147 homes designed by Ponty share red-tiled roofs and stucco exterior walls, wrought iron and glazed-tile detailing. Yet each home was built slightly differently from the next, with flipped floor plans and doors and windows in different places.[7] South Carthay remains an architecturally cohesive community, with few intrusions from the succeeding decades.[2]

Historic Preservation Overlay Zone[edit] In 1984, South Carthay became the second neighborhood in the city to receive the designation of Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ).[7] The South Carthay preservation plan was adopted by the City of Los Angeles on December 9, 2010. Objectives of the HPOZ include: Safeguarding the character of historic buildings and sites and recognizing and protecting the historic streetscape and development patterns.[8] The HPOZ boundaries exclude the commercial thoroughfares of Pico Boulevard and La Cienega Boulevard.[9]
