Location:  Los Angeles, California

Client:  JMB Realty Corporation

Johnson Fain designed Century City’s high-rise office building, MGM Tower, currently named Constellation Place, for Chicago-based JMB Realty Corp.  The 704,000-square-foot, class A building was the first major high-rise to be constructed in Los Angeles in more than a decade.  To best suit the needs of its high profile tenants, Johnson Fain has configured MGM Tower with large, flexible floor plates, dramatic glass corners and long elevations to take advantage of the views in all directions.  This arrangement maximizes the perimeter, allowing for more exterior offices with direct sunlight and skyline views.

The 35-story building contains expanded floor plates of 25,000 square feet on the lower floors, while upper floors consist of smaller more exclusive floorplates.  The dramatically curved window wall encloses triangular glass corners highlighted by a rich facade of glass and granite. 

Situated on six acres at the corner of Constellation Boulevard and Century Park West, MGM Tower enjoys a highly visible, prominent position at the western edge of Century City.  Shopping, restaurants, entertainment and hotels are all part of its vibrant mixed-use neighborhood.

The project includes a six story stand-alone parking structure housing over 2,800 cars.
