Century City parking is going to cost you

century-city-parking-fa.jpgThe Westfield mall at Century City is dropping out of the ranks of Los Angeles malls that let you park free for at least a couple of hours. Starting Feb. 1, it's going to cost a dollar an hour — up to three hours. After that, it's a dollar for every fifteen minutes. The maximum seems to be $24 for five hours or more. This is a mall where people used to drop in for a movie or pick up something at Gelson's. Michael Schneider at the blog Franklin Avenue noticed the sign and says it appears there will be validations for the theater and the market — $4 for five hours at the AMC theater.

In ten years or so there will be a subway stop nearby. So there's that.
