Sometimes it amazes me! but LA has to be one of a few
cities that has two downtownlike areas all within
the same city limits!
I think Century City by itself would be a mayor skyline player

MGM Tower

None of the above pics include the new 38 floor MGM tower. It's located just west of the century plaza hotel and it is beautiful.
I think I have some pics somewhere, I'll find them and post it in this thread.

No, the building you are refering to is the Sun America Tower. If the MGM tower was in this pic, it would be further to the right.

Actually leeinvenice, he is right that building is MGM Tower. Its got the MGM sign on top. I believe SunAmerica is directly behind it from this angle.

Nope, check again, the building that you are refering to is more square and it says Sun America on the top of it. The MGM tower is directly west of the Centry Plaza Hotel, it has not been built in the photo above. If the MGM tower were in this photo, it would block out the St. Regis hotel (just betweeen the Century Plaza Hotel and the Fox building). Study the diffrent set backs on the MGM Tower and you'll see the one in the Centry City Skyline pic has no set backs, just goes straight up..

Thanks LA4life
I knew that was it but I got confused, I went to a 3 day conference to the century plaza hotel, and I thought I saw the building in the block right on the side of the hotel.
