2220-2222 Avenue of the Stars two buildings one man I.M. PEI Architect

www.endrebarath.com

One of the most recognized Architects around the world is of course I.M Pei. Those of you who have been to the Louvre in Paris or seen pictures of the Pyramid in the Louvre might not have connected the building with the architect.

 

If you have been or seen the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in MA (outside of Boston) you would have discovered another I.M. Pei designed building. Keep in mind he was very busy from 1960-1965 all over the world.

 

Little lesser known is the fact that he also designed The Century Towers this was the first residential project constructed in Century City, shortly after Century City was sold by 20th Century Fox.

Just a side trivia, one of my first listings was in the 2220 Avenue of the Stars building shortly after we relocated to Los Angeles, CA. My listing was a couple floors from the late Burt Lancaster’s unit which was then owned by one of the Herbalife principals. At the same time Michael Douglas and Zeta Jones were remodeling/gutting their unit in the building while I was in the process of selling my listing.

Today Century Towers has been going through a rediscovery and most of the units have been totally updated to current standards. Both towers are full service with concierge, doormen as well as valet service. In addition the entrance is gated and guarded. Should you like more information about this luxury resort style life please reach out to me directly.

Good morning Endre.  I am familiar with many of I.M. Pei's works.  Most are awesome, but there are also a few that I'm not that big of a fan of.

Endre,

We are both familiar with his work.  One of Ron's friend's mother lived in one of those towers.  The views were amazing.  A

Hi Endre -- it's been more than a few years since I've visited the Century Towers. At the time, the common areas were in need of a bit of a facelift..which I'm sure has been accomplished.  The "spaces" in the units are incredible.

Endre I would imagine that the units in those building command a hefty price.
