Know of any good buildings in a safe area of santa monica, venice, westwood or culver city that have thick walls? I'm not a fan of hearing my neighbors or smelling cigarette smoke.

Newer construction will have thicker walls and more concrete on the floors.

The best bet would be 2005-2009 construction. If you can find buildings originally constructed as condos or condo units for rent, that would be the way to go. look for a corner unit or one that has 1 common wall only.

On the Wilshire corridor, the newer bldgs have 8 inch concrete pads between floors and are designed so there is minimal common walls. The older ones built in the 70s are thin walled. There are several new apt projects that have many vacancies. check out 4th street so of santa monica blvd as there are a few new projects that you can probably pick your unit.
