Afternoon Thinkage: Where Are Plebians Supposed to Live in Century City?

New, 13 comments

Nowhere, maybe. As reported yesterday, Jean Nouvel's expected Century City tower will feature residences starting at more than $3.2 million. The under-construction Century tower has a penthouse going for $27 million. One gets to wondering: where's the more affordable housing and apartments for the secretaries, assistants, and middle managers working in Century City? Curbed asked city councilman Jack Weiss about any plans for such housing and we heard zippo. The only way into the office park neighborhood is an impossible drive via car or bus (or bicycle if brave). Will things change when/if the subway makes its way into the gleaming fortress?
