That is a cool looking tower. Is there a height restricition in Century City? All the buildings appear to be about the same height.

Nice buidling. I was wondering about the height restriction too. The only thing I can think of is Santa Monica airport is pretty close by. But there are taller buildings in West L.A. than in Century City.

I would prefer this building to be 10 stories taller. But, it still is a great addition to the skyline. Thanks!

There aren't taller buildings in West LA, compared to Century City. Most of the Westwood / Wilshire towers are in the 20 - 25 story range. Ill try to find out about a height limit in CC. i dont think there is, but lets see.

Is this a proposal, or is this actually already under construction?

Isn't a new building at the same height pretty much what one would expect from Stern?

Nice looking building and I hope it gets built. I was wondering also about the height restrictions. It's time for something to break the barrier (if possible).

Isn't this the tower that could eventually replace the St. Regis? If so, it's not under construction yet. There's a very large building under the process of deconstruction that still has to be done away with. It could still end up a parking lot.

This should be in proposals.

Hm, a shame its gone. So young. The tower was bland and boring but thats how Century City is. This new tower is nice but in the wrong place. Century City is a skyline of Bland but Cool Office Towers (Excluding SunAmerica, MGM and Fox)


This tower belong's in the Wilshire Corridor, across the Country Club from Century City.

Sorry about that. I thought the cluster there by the 405 (like the KB headquarters) were 30+. My memory is a little hazy, it's been 5 years since I lived in LA.

I am thrilled to see all the new projects though, seemed like nothing happened for the longest time (outside of Marina Del Rey).

How many more ground up's do we have for Century City? I could have swore there was like two more in the works. Can someone confirm, thanks in advanced!
