Hancock Park Information

Hancock Park is located within the 90004, 90020, 90010, and 90036 zip codes and is bordered by Beverly Center/Miracle Mile to the west; Hollywood to the north; Windsor Sqaure and Larchmont to the east; and Greater Wilshire to the south.

Hancock Park was developed by, and owes its name to, philanthropist and developer George Allan Hancock, who subdivided the land in the 1920s, using profits earned from oil drilling in the former Rancho La Brea, developing the neighborhood around the grounds of the Wilshire Country Club. Hancock was raised in a home near the La Brea tar pits, which he donated to Los Angeles County. Most of the homes in Hancock Park have a 50 foot setback from the street, per G. Allan Hancock's demands, and include a driveway on the side of the home leading to a rear garage though a porte-cochère.

The park named Hancock Park is registered as California Historical Landmark #170.

Windsor Square Information

Windsor Square is often mistakenly called "Hancock Park," even by long-time residents. Hancock Park, however, is the neighborhood to the west of Windsor Square. Windsor Square is located within the 90004, 90020, and 90010 zip codes and is bordered by Hancock Park to the west, Larchmont to the north, Koreatown to the east, and Greater Wilshire to the south. Today, Windsor Square runs from Beverly Boulevard to Wilshire Boulevard, and from Van Ness Avenue and Arden Boulevard, including a one-block strip of Larchmont Village, between Beverly Boulevard and First Street.

Robert A. Rowan began a unique residential development in 1911 and called it Windsor Square. Rowan's vision for the community was as a private square with both the homes and the streets privately owned. Rowan also controlled the aesthetic of his new development, installing deed restrictions mandating a minimum cost per home that was quite steep for the time and resulted in renowned architects such as Paul Williams and A.C. Martin designing homes for the area. In order to create an open park-like setting, Rowan discouraged fences and walls between properties, so the grounds of one home would flow into another, and his community was the first in Los Angeles to bury power lines below grade.

The result was many of the Los Angeles elite moving to Windsor Square, including Norman Chandler, Peter Janss, George A.J. Howard, and John Paul Getty, whose home on Irving Boulevard is now the official residence of the Mayor of Los Angeles.

Windsor Square was designated a City of Los Angeles Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in 2004.
