Originally constructed in 1966, the Century Plaza Hotel is in the process of undergoing a redevelopment that will refurbish the hotel, eliminate about half of its 726 rooms, and add 63 residences. The space gained from eliminating a good portion of the rooms will be used to create 93,000 sf of commercial space on the hotel’s lower levels. 400 hotel rooms will remain on the upper floors.

Gensler is handling the interior renovation of the Century Plaza Hotel and Fairmont Hotels will operate it when completed. Fairmont is known for operating many luxury and historic hotels around the world.

The hotel redevelopment is part of the larger $2.5 billion Century Plaza project in Century City, Curbed Los Angeles reports. As part of this larger project, two new 46-story residential towers will rise behind the hotel. The towers, designed by Pei Cobb Freed, will have a combined total of 300 condominiums.

The Century Plaza project will also include a public, outdoor garden designed by Rios Clementi hale Studios, shops, and restaurants.
