Here's some more pics and info:









Westwood Gateway

A monument to fine taste. Its classic architecture and richly landscaped grounds make Westwood Gateway a notable landmark on the Westside. Conveniently located on Santa Monica Boulevard at the 405, this highly visible travertine-clad property is just minutes from LAX and L.A.'s finest neighborhoods.

Features
Three high-rise buildings totaling 820,000 SF
Excellent freeway access and visibility
Designed by Skidmore, Owings, Merrill
Ample structured parking
On-site conference center


Amenities
Panoramic views
Many fine restaurants nearby
Minutes to UCLA and Westwood Village
Short distance to Downtown, LAX and beaches

thanx Archi for the notes and pictures about Westwood Gateway ...I like very much this complex and I had to know that the design was made from a great firm as SOM.....the union of a simple shape with the elegance of the lines and the choice of materials is very impressive for me and remind me italian razionalist architecture

No one else thinks that it kind of sticks out like a sore thumb?

Wow, this was designed by SOM? Rather subpar for SOM.

The only thing that makes me interested in these structures whenever I drive by is that I think they have water tanks near the top to counteract the swaying motion of some earthquakes

Archi those pics you posted actually makes me somewhat appreciate this boxy complex. Something I've never really been able to do while driving down the 405.
