Welcome to Century City

This “city within a city” is home to a cluster of high-rises that command a visible stretch of L.A.’s skyline.
Century City wouldn’t exist without 20th Century Fox: The neighborhood was built on one of the movie studio’s backlots. In 1956, Fox’s president decided to repurpose the land for real estate development and with the help of his nephew-in-law, an attorney who’s been dubbed “the father of Century City,” commissioned a master plan from an architectural firm. The first building went up in 1963.
Referencing 20th Century Fox, the neighborhood was formerly used as one of the movie studio’s backlots until it was repurposed for real estate in 1956. Century City is bisected by Olympic Boulevard and occupies less than one square mile.

What To Expect

Towering office buildings, luxe shopping, and a thriving food scene.
Though its population density thins at the end of the workday, Century City is rife with neighborhood infrastructure. Several shopping malls and a host of upscale restaurants contribute to a thriving retail and nightlife scene within this commercial center, including the 422,000-square-foot Westfield Mall development.

The Lifestyle

Bustling commerce complemented by upscale entertainment.
While Century City’s evening entertainment rarely gets too rowdy, its denizens take full advantage of the area’s luxe shopping and dining options.

Unexpected Appeal

Sleek architecture and urban energy.
Despite its diminutive nature, Century City feels more like a big city than the small town its square footage would suggest. Its expanding professional population, cluster of high-rises, and major Westfield shopping center lend a bustling urban air.

The Market

Luxury high-rise condos and mid-century apartment buildings.
Much of Century City’s property is commercial, but it also boasts some of LA’s tallest, most well-appointed condo offerings as well as mid-century apartment buildings and duplexes that harken back to its early days of development.
