Welcome to Outpost Estates Neighborhood in Los Angeles
Like Whitley Heights, the Dell and Lake Hollywood, the neighborhood of Outpost Estates was another affluent enclave for the rich and famous back in the roaring 20s. It was developed originally by Charles Toberman starting in 1924. He even put a sign up in hills above the development in red neon lights that read Outpost to compete with the Hollywoodland sign development, now the iconic Hollywood sign. History tells what sign is still standing. The Outpost sign was dismantled after WWII; however, the area still remains a hotspot for industry types as a quiet neighborhood centralized right in Hollywood.
The entrance to Outpost Estates is off Franklin Avenue just east of La Brea. Toberman had the foresight to bury all utilities underground to keep the clean European style of the neighborhood, which was one of the first in the nation to do so along with Holmby Hills. The outside façade of homes there today are still primarily the Spanish, Mediterranean and California modern-style that Toberman had built with red-tiled roofs dotting the neighborhood.
