Westwood-Century City Westwood A next-wave mall, a top of the line university, and…the best donuts in all of L.A.? We at Luxury Real Estate by Desiree Lapin of Sotheby’s International Realty like to point out that the Westwood/Century City area has it all, although the two parts of it are quite distinct. Westwood is home to UCLA and the super-walkable Westwood Village, where casual spots include the aforementioned Stan’s Donuts (try “the Huell,” a chocolate and peanut butter-infused variation) and Espresso Profeta, where appreciative Italian can be overheard being spoken by European transplants. The “Village” is also the most movie-premiere dense stretch of streets in the city. Westwood’s classic homes feature stucco and Spanish tile and sprawling green lawns – but real estate options also include well-kept condominiums both north and south of Wilshire Boulevard. The more industry-centric Century City features the Westfield Shopping Center, which next year will complete an $800 million renovation, featuring a flagship Nordstrom and the first West Coast outpost of Mario Batali’s Italian market Eataly. Stylish singles and savvy empty-nesters love the super-green golf course views offered up by what may be the best high-rise living in L.A. in Century City – and those buying a home in Los Angeles should note that these real estate options are expanding by the minute. The Century City area will soon see two new high-rises (Richard Meier designed One Beverly Hills and Ten Thousand by the Miami-based Crescent Heights Group). Construction, once completed, will total over three-quarters of a billion dollars. What Westwood and Century City do share is proximity to the beach yet all the comforts of the city.
