The former West Los Angeles site of the Martin Cadillac dealership and drive-in cinema is now West Edge, a dynamic mixed-use complex with an office tower designed by Gensler, a residential tower by Togawa Smith Martin and landscape architecture by Rios.

West Edge’s design pays homage to the property’s history, including a terrace for outdoor movie screenings, Cadillac-inspired seating and color schemes, and artwork alluding to L.A.’s automotive history,” says Matthew Hines, the director of the property’s development firm, Hines. At the corner of Olympic and Bundy, West Edge’s amenities include restaurants and fitness facilities, as well as retail shopping.
