A circa-1988 site plan. The first expansion (indicated in dark gray) extended the mall southward and included the aforementioned Bullock's. The official name was changed to CENTURY CITY CENTER in the early 1980s. An 8 million dollar facelift was done in 1985. The remodeling resumed in 1987, when a multiplex cinema and The Marketplace food court (in medium gray) were added.
A computer-generated, bird's-eye view of Century City, showing the level of development that had taken place by the mid-1990s. Buildings erected in the 1960s, then the tallest in the entire region, had been dwarfed by those which now towered over them.
