The Century opened for occupancy in 2010 and quickly made headlines as Candy Spelling purchased the top two floors of the residential tower for $47 million ($2,848 per foot). The luxury skyscraper condominium soars over the Century City skyline as the 22nd tallest building in Los Angeles. Designed by famed postmodern architect Robert A.M. Stern, The Century stands at 42 stories tall and is home to 140 condo units. Ranging from 2,500 to over 9,000 square feet, the condo units offer breathtaking views of the Los Angeles cityscape from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean.
Situated near the Fox Studios lot, The Century is ideal for celebrities and international buyers looking for privacy. Residents are safely protected behind travertine-flanked iron entry gates and are welcomed by a grand lobby staffed by highly trained personnel. Parking valets, concierge, porter, and doorman are on-hand 24 hours. One unexpected feature of this high-rise living is that The Century has a garden lobby with a view of Bel Air-inspired manicured gardens with cascading water features and over 150 mature pine trees.
Top-tier features are offered in The Century condo units. There are 4 units per floor with a private elevator vestibule for each. All condo units have floor to ceiling windows, expansive balconies, fireplaces, custom designed kitchens and bathrooms, and in-unit laundry rooms. Some units have magnificent 180-degree views of Los Angeles. Bedrooms have spa-like baths, soaking tubs, and double-sink vanities. Over 20 different floor plans are available and residents can choose from 3 different design options (Century design, Manor design, and Metropolitan design). A general manager lives on site to cater to any and all needs of residents. A personal assistant is also on-hand to assist residents. Other amenities include a 16-seat screening room, a Pilates studio, 75-foot lap pool with views of the Pacific Ocean, and outdoor kitchens and dining rooms for entertaining.
The Century City luxury condo tower is also home to Hinoki & the Bird, a Japanese inspired restaurant operated by Michelin-star chef David Myers. Located on the ground floor of The Century, the fine dining restaurant is available to residents and the public. The Century was awarded LEED Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for determining the best environmental design and construction practices based on water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and other sustainable marks.
