Pacific Design Center

The PDC houses the West Coast's top decorating and furniture market, with showrooms, public and private spaces, a branch of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and two restaurants operated by chef and restauranteur Wolfgang Puck. Designed by architect Cesar Pelli, the 14-acre (57,000 m2) campus opened in 1975, with the 750,000-square-foot (70,000 m2) Center Blue. Center Green opened in 1988, adding 450,000 square feet (42,000 m2). A long planned third phase, Center Red, was announced in April 2006, with plans for completion in 2011. Center Red has evolved into a 400,000-square-foot (37,000 m2) structure with two state-of-the-art office towers�six and eight stories high respectively�sitting atop seven levels of enclosed parking for 1,500 cars
