These are presented to the best companies all over Southern California.
The Century Plaza Hotel
The Century Plaza Hotel is a 19-story luxury hotel located in Century City. It opened in 1966 and at the time was the highest building in the city, allowing a view of the Pacific Ocean. It is also the first hotel to have all rooms outfitted with color televisions. It was originally scheduled for demolition but was added to the National Trust for Historic Preservation back in 2009.
It is considered an iconic structure that would stand for future generations to make use of. The Century Plaza Hotel was closed in 2016 for renovations and redevelopment, which will include 400 guest rooms, 63 residences, an upgraded modern ballroom for events, as well as many other luxury amenities. The hotel will reopen in 2021 with the aim of envisioning a uniquely Holywood feel.
SoFi Stadium is an entertainment complex and stadium located in Inglewood, California. It stands on the former site of the Hollywood Park Racetrack. The SoFI stadium serves as the home to two National Football League teams, the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. It will also be hosting the following events in the upcoming years: Super Bowl LVI 2022, College Football Playoff National Championship 2023, World Wrestling Entertainment’s Wrestlemania 39, and select events from the 2028 Summer Olympics (opening ceremonies, archery, soccer, and closing ceremonies). The SoFi stadium is composed of a performance center, a pedestrian plaza, and the stadium proper.
