Completed in 1963, Gateway West was the first building erected in Century City—an architectural plan that converted the back lot of 20th Century Fox into a modern neighbourhood with skyscrapers. Designed in the International Style by renowned architect Welton Becket (1902–1969), it was 13 stories tall and 173.56 feet (52.90 m) high and had a façade made of aluminum.
Gateway West's twin-sister building, Gateway East, was located directly across from it on Avenue of the Stars. Gateway East, was the second high-rise building completed in the new redevelopment. Gateway West was demolished in 2015 to make way for an expansion of Westfield Century City.
