Looks like they've shaved off 8 floors.

And the southern tower has been changed to create another set of Century City twins. I liked the 3-lobe design better.

^ it almost makes Avenue of the Stars act like a mirror.

As a fan of mid-century modern architecture, I do like the Century Plaza hotel. I actually stayed there when I was in LA last year and found it to be a nice place to stay. I could relatively easily hop on the Santa Monica or Olympic buses to travel to the coast, WeHo, downtown, etc... To me, the two proposed towers, while not necessarily bad, don't represent anything of unique architectural value. But I'm still always in favor of more density, particularly in an area where a subway station is going to be built. So I must say I do very much like the backside placement of the two glass high-rises at either end of the Century Plaza. From Avenue of the Stars, they sort of frame the building, providing a somewhat cool juxtaposition of classic mid-century modern with current modern glassy.

Why not build these towers on a surface lot instead?

Believe it or not, there are not a lot of surface lots in Century City. Just a lot of large plaza's which gives Century City a very 'vast' feeling. Not to mention it's extremely wide streets.

New rendering, and some new details. Getting rid of the old hotels driveway, adding a subway portal, and making it more pedestrian friendly. All good stuff.

Nice to know the Developers agreed to save the Hotel for the Preservationists, and for the Developers to be able to build their towers in the back.

What i'm really excited about is the subway portal on the lower right part of the rendering. When the Purple Line reaches this area, Century City will finally be connected to the rest of LA by something other than roads.

Curbed posted an article on a plan for that lot. I'll try and find it today.

I can't believe how symmetrical Century City is becoming, it's really quite beautiful and unique. I love how the new towers and hotel directly mirror the Century Plaza twin towers and 2000 Avenue of the Stars across the street. Exciting stuff!
