Century City

Century City Territory

Century City is a 176-acre neighborhood and commercial district located in the Westside. Marked by hotels, condos, and offices, the neighborhood is a prominent employment center for the L.A. metropolitan area. Over 8,550 people reside in Century City.

The land originally belonged to actor Tom Mix, who used it as a ranch, before it developed on the backlot for 20th Century Fox. In 1961, Fox Studios sold 180 acres to developer William Zeckendorf and Aluminum Co. of America. The first building, Gateway West Building, was completed in 1963.

Within Century City is the Westfield Century City shopping center, the Annenberg Space for Photography, and several notable skyscrapers and buildings, including the Constellation Place, the Century Plaza Towers, and the Fox Plaza.

Though there aren’t any public schools in the area, three private schools exist in or near the area: VINCI Academy Daycare and Preschool, Lycée Français de Los Angeles, and Temple Isaiah Preschool and Kindergarten.
