Century City has never been LA’s brightest star. But that might be changing.
Century City has much going for it.
The new pedestrian-friendly plaza could make this Los Angeles community even more desirable!
Could Century City Be the Next Grove?
Century City has a location that is ideal in many ways. The community is located centrally between the Westside of LA and the eastern areas.
People like that the community is directly next to Beverly Hills and also close enough to the ocean to enjoy the improved air quality of sea breezes.
It’s also not so far west that one has to transverse the dreaded traffic gridlock of Wilshire at the 405 freeway.
However, the lack of walkability within Century City (and lack of architectural diversity) has previously given the community a bit of a sterile feel.
Even so, there’s something about the vibe of Century City that has always been appealing. Over the years the community has gradually become more appealing in the minds of Los Angeles residents.
There is a new plan to dramatically improve the Century Plaza Hotel that will make Century City even more walkable. If the plan is implemented, it will upgrade the entire surrounding areas of the hotel. This could be the game-changer Century City has been waiting for.
This new planned development would include shopping, fitness, luxury condos, offices, and hotel rooms. It could revitalize Century City in the same way that the The Grove reinvigorated Third Street (mid-city area of Los Angeles).
Above is a photo I took while poolside at the Plaza hotel. Below you see the health spa which is attached to the hotel.
