Built on the former back lot of the 20th Century Fox studio is the 176-acre neighborhood known as Century City. Known for being the area’s most prominent metropolitan employment center outside of downtown, the Century City skyscrapers form a distinctive skyline on the west side of the city. The first building opened in Century City in 1963 and today is home to one of the region’s most economically important shopping centers, Westfield Century City.
Bordered by Santa Monica Boulevard to the north and platinum triangle cities to the east, the land once belonged to cowboy actor, Tom Mix, who used it as a ranch. In 1956, Spyros Skouras, sometimes known as “the father of Century City”, decided to repurpose the land for real estate development. Together with his nephew-in-law, Edmond Herrscher, the commissioned a master-plan development from Welton Becket Associates to build on the western backlot later that year. 20th Century Fox sold the land because of a series financial problems, which included their decision to bankroll the disastrous Elizabeth Taylor epic, “Cleopatra”. Skouras eventually let Becket’s firm go and turned instead to I.M. Pei and Minoru Yamasaki who created the new vision of what Century City is today.
