Westwood / Century City

Learn about Westwood / Century City

Westwood is a commercial and residential neighborhood in the northern central portion of the Westside region of Los Angeles, California. It is the home of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Westwood is flanked on the north by Bel Air, on the east by Beverly Hills, on the southeast by Century City, on the south by West Los Angeles, and on the west by Veterans Administration and Brentwood.

Neighborhoods in Westwood include: Westwood Village, opening in 1929, the design was considered one of the nation's best-planned and beautifully laid out commercial areas. Harold Janss had hired major architects and instructed them to follow a Mediterranean theme, with clay tile roofs, decorative Spanish tile, paseos, patios and courtyards. By 1999, the Village was considered to be upscale economically, and today it houses many small and large shops and restaurants.; Holmby Hills, together with Bel Air and Beverly Hills form the "Platinum Triangle" of Los Angeles. It is bordered by the city of Beverly Hills on the east, Wilshire Boulevard on the south and Bel Air on the north.; North Westwood Village, is a mostly multifamily residential neighborhood west of Gayley Avenue, north of Weyburn Avenue and east of Veteran Avenue where many UCLA students reside.; Tehrangeles, also known as "Little Persia", refers to the large number of Persian restaurants, grocery stores, book stores, art galleries, travel agencies, and rug stores along Westwood Boulevard that has served as a cultural hub for the Persian community in Los Angeles since the 1960s.

Sixty-six percent of Westwood residents aged 25 and older had earned a four-year degree by 2000, a high figure for both the city and the county. The percentages of residents of that age with a master's degree or higher was the third-highest in the county.

Century City is a 176-acre neighborhood and business district in Los Angeles, California. Located on the Westside to the south of Santa Monica Boulevard around 10 miles (16 km) west of Downtown Los Angeles, Century City is one of the most prominent employment centers in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, and its skyscrapers form a distinctive skyline on the Westside. The district was developed on the former backlot of film studio 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios), and its first building was opened in 1963. There are two private schools, but no public schools in the neighborhood. Important to the economy are the Westfield Century City shopping center, business towers, and Fox Studios.
