@ Denetsu. you are right for a little part. You just can't compare the burj dubai lake hotel with this tower in Los Angeles. The burj dubai lake hotel is bigger, more expensive, and almost 2 times higher.

^ The Century is much more tastefully designed.

Also, I drove past the site and saw from Olympic Blvd that they're already adding some panels or pre-cast walls or something to the first few floors. You can even see it at the bottom of the tower, through the trees from this view...

Construction Watch: The Century and Its $27 Million Penthouse

By Dakota
February 20, 2008

Jean Nouvel's leafy blade isn't the only high-end project planned for Century City--construction continues on The Century, the 42-story, Robert A.M. Stern-designed building, a Related project that'll be topped off by a two story, five-bedroom unit listed for $27 million. Sadly, floor plans of the penthouse are only available to interested buyers, the plans protected to stave off the cat burglars, we imagine.

Yes, it's in Century city, at Olympic blvd. and Ave. of the Stars, opposite Fox Plaza tower. (the Nakatomi building in the movie "Diehard")

Looks like they've added a couple more floors and it seems the cranes have definitely gotten taller, too.

Have you noticed that a dead 30-story hotel used to stand on the site of this residential tower?

^ You must be referring to the St. Regis Hotel that used to occupy that site. They tore it down and they're building this tower in place of it.

This is a tough building to photograph up close, only because there's nowhere to park nearby (that you don't have to pay for). I had to park illegally in a "no stopping anytime" zone, throw on my hazards and hope no one nailed my car while I ran across the street. I count at least 16 floors.

The hotel was built in 1985 and went to be with the Lord in 2006. should have built this hotel in the mid 70s.

Construction Watch: The Century in Century City

By Neal Broverman
April 28, 2008

Architect Robert A.M. Stern's The Century is rising like a phoenix in CC; the 42-story stunner looks about half-done now. One caveat—except for the Century City mall and its wicked-good food court, the neighborhood is an after-hours ghost town (kinda like New York in I Am Legend but scrubbed clean). But that hasn't stopped someone from snapping up the $15 million penthouse. Meanwhile, what's interest like in one of the priciest Westside condos of them all--the $27 million penthouse?
