Coming soon, a new Century City Mall with condos?

Artist Rendering of The New Century City Plan

I came across an interesting website today, www.thenewcenturyplan.com. This site outlines the proposal of Westfield (the owners of the Century City Mall in Los Angeles) to renovate the property. Here are the major elements of the plan from their website:

*Remove two aging office buildings at 1801 Avenue of the Stars and 1930 Century Park West and integrate those properties into the New Century, creating a unique combination of state-of-the-art new retail and parking together with a new mixed use condominium tower on Avenue of the Stars
*Increase new shopping and dining options by approximately 40% to 50% and create more parking and amenities throughout the center
*Reduce current office space by approximately two-thirds
*Add 260 luxury condominiums to provide a new choice for Angelenos to live and play where they work

It looks to me like the "sales pitch" for this project is still in the very early stages. It will be interesting to watch. To learn a little more about the history of Century City, here is some background from Wikipedia.

We have added the link to this proposed Century City Mall redevelopment to Los Angeles Real Estate.

The Hollywood condos

The Hollywood

An ad for The Hollywood condos "Modern design in the heart of hollywood" caught my eye in today's Los Angeles Times real estate section. This real estate project is currently in its construction phase (estimated to be completed at the end of 2006), and we have added it to our Los Angeles Real Estate page. I think this project is interesting for a few reasons; a focus on modern architecture, the fact that it is all two and three bedroom units, and a sales pitch that targets the strategic location and transportation options for someone in the entertainment industry. This will be an interesting real estate project to watch, and their website says that this is the first such development to take place in Hollywood in decades.
