Ten months after breaking round on its $2.5-billion redevelopment of the Century Plaza hotel, developer Woodbridge Capital Partners is preparing to lay the foundation of the twin residential towers that will rise at the back of the property.

The pair of 46-story buildings, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, are designed in the form of Reuleaux triangles, echoing Minoru Yamsaaki's Century Plaza Towers across the street.  A toal of 300 condominiums and a variety of amenity spaces are planned through the towers.

Next-door, the 16-story Century Plaza hotel is being revived with a 400-room Fairmont Hotel, 93,000 square feet of commercial space and 63 condominiums on its upper floors.  Gensler and Marmol Radziner are designing the adaptive reuse component of the development, building upon original work by Minoru Yamsaaki.

The project also includes new landscaping and open space, designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios.

An opening is scheduled for 2018, five years in advance of the arrival of the Purple Line subway in Century City.
