Century City, formally the back lot of 20th Century Fox Studio, was originally built as a business district, to attract corporations and professionals from the business world and film industry. The high-rise office buildings have clean architectural lines and are set in attractive open air spaces near plenty of shopping, restaurants, hotels and entertainment.
The area has continued to evolve. Constellation Place is home to ICM. CAA has expanded its presence in the stunning architectural building that features the upscale Craft Restaurant. The Century Plaza Hotel is going to be replaced by twin 46 story office towers. The Westfield Shopping Center which houses Gelson’s market, shops, restaurants, and cinemas has been a popular entertainment / shopping destination. Now it is in the final stages of a reported $950 million makeover. There will be more than 10 new restaurants, bars and coffee shops, the first West Coast Eataly Italian Marketplace and a brand new Macy’s.
On the residential side, the established guard gated condominium communities offer resort like amenities and services. Century Hill, Century Park East, Century Towers, Century Woods, Le Parc, Park Place and the elliptical high rise The Century attract buyers from across the globe. The newest addition at the Gateway to Beverly Hills and Century City is the 40 story building at 10000 Santa Monica Blvd offering 2 and 3 bedroom units for lease with over the top hospitality style services.
The areas adjacent to the center of Century City have also thrived. Construction and renovation of homes and new condo projects are at record highs.
