Luxury Real Estate: The Los Angeles Times Business section reports the penthouse of the Century has been sold. The luxurious flat was purchased by Candy Spelling, widow to the late TV mogul, Aaron Spelling. Actually, the confirmed sale makes Spelling a resident in waiting, as she bought the top two floors in the Century, a soon-to-be vertical-luxury development currently under construction in the Century City area of Los Angeles County. The $47-million price equates to $2,848 per square foot, which makes Spellings' two-story tower to measure out to more than 16,500 square feet.

The high-rise, which is expected to be ready in 2009, is situated on four acres of land that seem to be a million miles away from the Century City business community it borders. The landscaping is pristine and as fresh as a PGA tournament-approved golf course. The development is a 42-story high rise by Robert A.M. Stern Architects that offers three floor plans. Larger-than-life amenities for residents include access to a large theater room, a banquet room, the Assouline Culture Lounge, and a 75-foot swimming pool for starters. A concierge closet will be available on each floor to facilitate incoming and outgoing packages, deliveries, laundry services, and such matters, tidily.

The exclusive lifestyle neighborhood of Century City is next door to Beverly Hills as well. The view from atop the Century stretches from the Santa Monica Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. Visit the upscale property at or call 310-552-2055.
