[The tower shrunk a tad after these renderings were released]
City News Service is reporting that the Westfield shopping center in Century City was approved today by the Los Angeles City Council, a move that will bring a 39-story tower with 262 apartments/condos. According to the news wire, "the $800 million project "was given the OK without discussion between council members." Maybe they all went out for dinner last night at the nearby Pink Taco and talked about it? Either way, this is another step in the transformation of Century City (there's also the proposed Century Plaza). And with the project's go ahead, this means 1801 Avenue of the Stars aka Welton Becket's building, will come down. Photos here. RIP, 1801.
