Ten Thousand is a 283-unit, 470,000-square-foot luxury residential tower in Los Angeles. Located at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Moreno Drive, the 42-story tower creates a bold statement on the skyline and formed the new gateway to Century City.

Construction included 75,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities such as a full-service bar and lounge, fitness center, 75-foot indoor lap pool, exercise studios, screening room, game room, two glass-enclosed boardrooms fully outfitted with video conferencing equipment and TV monitors, a one-acre private park with California landscaping, and an outdoor lounging pool.

Standing in contrast with the neighboring flat-top structures, an angled cut at the top of the building defines its location in the skyline. In order to create an appropriate scale along the adjacent streets, the two-story base at the pedestrian level blends in well with the neighboring structures.

The building is composed of four crystal-like quadrants, while the balconies define the dramatic angles expressed along the north and south façades. The exterior glass skin of the building stretches from floor to ceiling, creating a bright and transparent façade. Each of the façades is slightly angled away from the other, creating the illusion of multiple planes of glass.
