The Miracle Mile HPOZ comprises 1,347 properties and is located in the Mid-Wilshire community of central Los Angeles. Its boundaries are Wilshire Boulevard to the north, San Vicente Boulevard to the south, La Brea Avenue to the east, and Orange Grove Avenue to the west. The HPOZ is composed largely of one-story single-family residences in the portion north of Olympic Boulevard and one and two-story multi-family residences in portion south of Olympic Boulevard; construction dates for properties within the district range from 1921 to approximately 2015, although the dominant period of development is the 1920s, ‘30s, and ‘40s.
Most buildings in the HPOZ reflect styles associated with the Period Revival modes of architecture, including Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, Mediterranean Revival, French Revival, and American Colonial Revival. Minimal Traditional-style buildings and Mid-Century Modern apartment buildings are present as well. The district is characterized by the consistency of building styles and massing, as well as its spatial and landscape features such as concrete sidewalks, mature trees, relatively consistent lot sizes, uniform setbacks, and a skewed orthogonal street pattern.
