Geography[edit] As shown on the map published on the Century City Chamber of Commerce website, Century City is generally bounded by Santa Monica Boulevard to the north, the city of Beverly Hills to the east, Pico Boulevard to the south, and Century Park West to the west (including the west side of Century Park West between Santa Monica Boulevard and Constellation Boulevard).[2] These boundaries correspond with those recognized by the Century City Business Improvement District Association.[3][4] Neighboring Century City are Beverly Hills to the east, Cheviot Hills to the south, West Los Angeles to the west, and Westwood to the north. The Mapping L.A. project of the Los Angeles Times extends Century City's western boundary to Beverly Glen Boulevard.[5] However, this more expansive definition appears to conflict with other L.A. Times reports: a 1999 article sets Century Park West as the neighborhood's western boundary,[6] and a 2017 article refers to the neighborhood bounded by Century City to the east and Beverly Glen Boulevard to the west as a distinct neighborhood.[7] Two specific plans cover the neighborhood: "Century City North Specific Plan for the retail, office, and entertainment functions in Century City," and "Century City South Specific Plan for multi-family homes, office tower, hotel and Fox Studios," according to the community plan set forth by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.[8][9]


History[edit] Play media Avenue of the Stars, 1978 The land of Century City belonged to cowboy actor Tom Mix (1880-1940), who used it as a ranch.[10] It later became a backlot of 20th Century Fox, which still has its headquarters just to the southwest.[10] The area is named for the 20th Century Fox's Century Property. In 1956, Spyros Skouras (1893-1971), who served as the President of 20th Century Fox from 1942–62, and his nephew-in-law Edmond Herrscher (died 1983), an attorney sometimes known as "the father of Century City", decided to repurpose the land for real estate development.[10][11] The following year, in 1957, they commissioned a master-plan development from Welton Becket Associates, which was unveiled at a major press event on the "western" backlot later that year.[10] In 1961, after Fox suffered a string of expensive flops, culminating with the financial strain put on the studio by the very expensive production of Cleopatra, the film studio sold about 180 acres (0.73 km2) to developer William Zeckendorf and Aluminum Co. of America, also known as Alcoa, for US$300 million (US$2.4 billion in 2014's money).[10] Herrscher had encouraged his uncle-in-law to borrow money instead, but once Skouras refused, he was out of the picture.[10] The new owners conceived Century City as "a city within a city".[12] In 1963, the first building, Gateway West Building, was completed.[10] The next year, in 1964, Minoru Yamasaki designed the Century Plaza Hotel.[10] Five years later, in 1969, architects Anthony J. Lumsden and César Pelli designed the Century City Medical Plaza.[13] Much of the shopping center's architecture and style can be seen in numerous sequences in the 1967 Fox film, A Guide for the Married Man, as well as in a sequence in another Fox film of the same year, Caprice. Century City's plaza as it appeared in the early 1970s can be viewed in several scenes of still another Fox film, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972).[citation needed]


Population[edit] 2009 aerial view of Century City; Fox Studios occupies the lower left quadrant Mapping L.A. data[edit] The following data applies to Century City within the boundaries set by the Mapping L.A. project: The 2000 U.S. census counted 5,513 residents in the 0.70-square-mile Century City neighborhood—or 7,869 people per square mile, an average population density for the city and county. The Southern California Association of Governments estimates that the daytime population amounts to 48,343 on a working day. In 2008, the city estimated that the resident population had increased to 5,934.[14] In 2008, the median age for residents was 46, older than average for the city and the county. The percentage of residents aged 65 and older (26.4%) was the highest for any neighborhood in Los Angeles County. The percentages of widowed men and women and of divorced men were among the county's highest. Military veterans accounted for 11.9% of the population, a high rate for the city and the county.[14][15] The neighborhood was considered "not especially diverse" ethnically, with a high percentage of white residents. The breakdown was whites, 82.5%; Asians, 8.6%; Latinos, 4.4%; blacks, 1.4%; and others, 3,0%. Iran (21.2%) and Canada (6.1%) were the most common places of birth for the 25.5% of the residents who were born abroad—a low percentage, compared to the city at large.[14] The median yearly income in 2014 was $95,135, a high figure for Los Angeles. The percentage of households that earned $125,000 and up was high for Los Angeles County. The average household size of 1.8 people was low for Los Angeles. Renters occupied 39.6% of the housing stock and apartment owners held 60.4%.[14]


Economy[edit] This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (June 2013) Constellation Place (formerly the MGM Tower) Westfield Century City and Fox Studios occupy important[clarification needed] acreage in the neighborhood. As of 2016, Westfield Century City is currently undergoing an $800 million renovation and expansion that aims to maintain the center's status as one of the Westside's premier shopping and entertainment destinations. One tower, Constellation Place (formerly the MGM Tower),[16] has the headquarters of Houlihan Lokey,[17] ICM Partners,[18] and International Lease Finance Corporation.[19] Crystal Cruises is also headquartered in Century City along with haircare manufacturer, John Paul Mitchell Systems.[20][21]


Government and infrastructure[edit] The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services SPA 5 West Area Health Office serves Century City.[22]


Emergency services[edit] Los Angeles Fire Department Station 92 is the assigned fire station for the district.[23] The Los Angeles Police Department operates the West Los Angeles Community Police Station at 1663 Butler Avenue, 90025, serving the neighborhood.


Education[edit] Lycée Français de Los Angeles Century City Campus, Pico Blvd. Fifty-five percent of Century City residents aged 25 or over had earned a four-year degree by 2000, a high figure for Los Angeles.[14] Los Angeles Unified School District is the school district of Century City. Three private schools are located in or near Century City  — VINCI Academy Daycare & Preschool, at 1940 Century Park East; Lycée Français de Los Angeles, at 10361 Pico Boulevard; and Temple Isaiah Preschool and Kindergarten, at 10345 West PIco Boulevard.[24]
