Miracle Mile North Historic Area

Miracle Mile North Historic Area

Miracle Mile North primarily consists of single-family residences which are uniform in scale, massing and setbacks. The majority of the one-story houses were built from 1924 to 1941 and reflect the Period Revival architectural styles of the time. While more than half the homes represent the Spanish Colonial Revival style, Tudor and American Colonial Revival styles can also be found. Prominent architects Paul Williams and Morgan, Walls and Clements and contractor Spiros Ponty (of South Carthay fame) designed houses for the neighborhood. Though small, the HPOZ is one of the more affluent areas of Los Angeles City.

The Petersen Automotive MuseumLos Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)A+D MuseumCraft and Folk Art Museum, and La Brea Tar Pits museums, among others, positioned "Museum Row" on the Miracle Mile as a concentrated few blocks of cultural significance to rival any in America.  There are a number of Art Deco buildings in the neighborhood that are in the elite group of local buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places, many designed by the famed architecture firm of Morgan, Walls & Clements.  Comprised of a colorful mix of retailers, restaurants, advertising agencies, law firms, public relations offices, publishing companies, art galleries, businesses and entertainment corporations, the Miracle Mile plays a defining part in the identity of the greater metropolis of Los Angeles.

Recognizing the need to identify and protect neighborhoods with distinct architectural and cultural resources, the City of Los Angeles has developed an expansive program of Historic Preservation Overlay Zones (HPOZs). HPOZs, commonly known as historic districts, provide for review of proposed exterior alterations and additions to historic properties within designated districts.
