The Hamptons condominiums is situated just one block east of the borderline where the neighborhood of Carthay begins. The area began as a residential district in 1922, when J. Harvey McCarthy developed the area along the San Vicente Boulevard line of the Pacific Electric Railway. The district was originally named Carthay Center. The location south of Olympic Boulevard went untouched until 1933, when developer Spyros George Ponty built hundreds of homes in two areas, now known as South Carthay and Carthay Square.
The initial Carthy Center neighborhood included a single screen movie house called Carthay Circle Theatre, which caused confusion that led to the entire area being known as Carthay Circle.
Today, Carthay is considered a high income, ethnically diverse, and well educated neighborhood of Beverly Hills. Many office towers can be found in the district, along with pedestrian pathways that are maintained as city streets.
