Century City is a neighborhood and business district in Los Angeles. It is one of the most prominent employment centers on the Westside known for sleek skyscrapers with offices of prominent law firms, investment banking firms, the entertainment industry and Westfield Century City, an upscale shopping mall.

Century City was once a ranch owned by actor Tom Mix.  Later on, Greek-American Spyros Skouras, a motion picture pioneer and movie executive who was president of 20th Century Fox (1942-1962) and Edmond Herrscher decided to develop the land. The district was developed on the former backlot of the 20th Century Fox film studio, and its first building was opened in 1963.  The studio eventually sold its 180 acres to William Zeckendorf, a New York City real estate developer.

Century City is bordered by Santa Monica Boulevard to the north, Beverly Hills to the east, Pico Boulevard to the south, and Century Park West to the west.  The famous Century Plaza Hotel is currently undergoing a $2.5 billion renovation and expansion project. This site will include 400 units and 63 private residences on two 46-story towers. The mixed-use project will also bring 100,000 square feet of shopping and restaurant destinations
