Just 7 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, Burbank, Hollywood and Universal City, Glendale has transitioned from sleepy to swanky in the past decade. Indeed, Glendale’s panache is evident. Home to many corporate headquarters and regional divisions for Disney, Nestle, Whole Foods and more, Glendale is a safe, walkable, vibrant 18-hour urban city with an impressive quality of living.

Glendale is dedicated to growth and embracing the future and at this pace, it's evident that their planning and strategic partnerships will do nothing but benefit the community.
