Caruso is a privately owned, industry-renowned company that blends best-in-class real estate with five-star hospitality to create a timeless collection of luxury destinations, featuring town centers, residences, offices, street-front retail, and a world-class resort.


For nearly three decades, Caruso has been creating extraordinary destinations in some of the most desirable locations in and around Los Angeles. Over the years, we have evolved across multiple lines of business, continually breaking new ground and redefining the shopping and lifestyle experience. While each has its own rich history, every Caruso property is deeply rooted in a dedication to delighting guests, both present and future.


We were founded on the belief of serving our communities through the power of connection. Our properties have always been designed to offer people a way to gather, connect, freely exchange ideas, and celebrate the diversity, culture and creativity that make our city so special.

At Caruso, we firmly believe our company, like our city, grows stronger from the diversity of voices and perspectives among us. We benefit from the skills, experiences and commitment of every person who works with us, and together, we are better able to serve our communities. As we continue to nurture a community built on respect and inclusiveness, we re-affirm our commitment to diversity and zero tolerance for discrimination of any form.

In the wake of recent events highlighting antisemitic behavior in our communities and throughout the country, we want to make it clear that our company and properties unequivocally reject antisemitism and religious discrimination of any kind. In solidarity with other government entities, we recognize the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of antisemitism and its contemporary examples found working conditions. We do not tolerate any form of hate, prejudice or discrimination on our properties, employment practices or any of our programs or activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, age, religion or religious creed, disability, sex or gender identity.
