A towering achievement.
A historic hotel gets a high-rise addition.
HED is serving as Executive Architect for the new Century Plaza Towers. Designed by acclaimed New York architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the two 44-story, triangular glass towers will flank the historic Century Park Plaza Hotel’s west elevation, and will contain 290 luxury condominiums, including multi-floor penthouses. HED also acted as Executive Architect in the conversion of the top five floors of the 1966 hotel into condo units.
The completed $850 million project is a major component of a larger $2.5 billion renovation and expansion centered around the original Minoru Yamasaki-designed hotel. The completed project will include the conversion of the hotel into high-end suites, residential condominiums, restaurants and retail space. Extensive landscaping will connect the new mixed-use development with the burgeoning Century City business district.
