RELATED'S THE CENTURY SETS LOS ANGELES RECORD FOR CONDOMINIUM SALES PRICE
Strong Start to Sales at Los Angeles' Premiere New Building
Century City, California. - A record-breaking sale of a penthouse at The Century, Los Angeles' most luxurious new condominium building, was announced today by Related Sales, the building's exclusive marketing and sales agent, setting a new high price per-square-foot for a Los Angeles condominium residence. The 42-story building on nearly four acres in the heart of Century City, designed by the renowned architecture firm of Robert A.M. Stern Architects, LLP to be the evolution of estate living, is currently well under construction and will be ready for occupancy in 2009. The penthouse was sold for $15 million or more than $2,700 per-square-foot.
"Wealthy L.A.buyers who are extremely discriminating and have purchased multiple homes in Montecito, Malibu, New York, Aspen and other destinations, have found they can still have the ultimate Los Angeles lifestyle while also gaining resort-like services and amenities," said David Wine, Vice Chairman of Related. "This buyer looked for a residence with a convenient Century City location that offered resort-style living without sacrificing privacy, and in this respect, the amenities and services at The Century are truly groundbreaking. The signature restaurant will offer service to each home and to the cabanas at the pool. Residents can meet with their private Equinox trainer in the gym followed by a massage in a private treatment room. Buyers can entertain guests in the Assouline Culture Lounge followed by a showing in the private screening room, and a catered fireside dinner in the garden. It's Los Angeles estate living without the headaches."
