At its center was Minoru Yamasaki’s 1966 Century Plaza Hotel, a mid-century masterpiece that served as a second home to Hollywood glitterati—power players and stars who closed deals, tied the knot, and received countless awards in the downstairs ballroom. The hotel is rooted deep in history, spanning numerous high profile events and guests that include Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Andy Williams, and Walt and Lillian Disney. It was home to the Grammy Awards in 1970 and 1971 and the Emmy Awards in 1967. Fifty years later, Century City remains a haven of A-list talent agencies, top-tier entertainment companies, world-class retail, and some of the best commercial real estate in the city. Its history is preserved and restored to grandeur by an award-winning team. This central hive of activity was always known as a great place to work and shop, while many Angeleno influencers lived in gated estates in Beverly Hills and Bel Air, it took the vision of real estate investor and developer Michael Rosenfeld, CEO of Woodridge Capital Partners, to redefine this Century City neighborhood with a new standard of luxury living and amenities. The Century Plaza Hotel will be operated by Fairmont and will include 63 branded residences. Marmol Radziner retained the 400-room hotel’s glorious New Formalism through grand gestures, restoring the canopy above the porte-cochere and replacing the 700 sliding glass doors to look nearly identical to the originals while meeting the highest of environmental standards. The Fairmont Century Plaza lobby is welcoming to all with an open breezeway that allows the flow of air and light into its interior lounges, gardens, and rooftop pool and bar.
