Both Westwood and Century City are affluent Los Angeles Westside neighborhoods. Westwood is almost 100 years old, making it rich in history and architecture. Home to UCLA, it is bordered to the north by Holmby Hills/Bel-Air/Sunset Blvd, to the west by Brentwood and the 405 Freeway, to the south by Century City/West LA/Santa Monica Blvd and to the east by the LA Country Club. Westwood is a commercial and residential neighborhood known for its condominiums on Wilshire Blvd along with California bungalows and Spanish style single family residences on small lots.
Century City is a residential and business district that was originally part of the back lot of the film studio 20th Century Fox. After a string of movie flops led to financial strain, the film studio sold approximately 180 acres to developer William Zeckendorf who repurposed the land for real estate development.
Outside of downtown, Century City is one of LA’s prominent employment hubs. Its skyscrapers, most notably the Century Plaza Twin Towers, form a distinctive skyline visible from Los Angeles’ preeminent neighborhoods such as Trousdale Estates and The Bird Streets.
