Blog Beverly Hills has the latest on 9900 Wilshire, the Richard Meier-designed, gold-Leeded green proposed condominium development between Santa Monica and Wilshire Blvds that is now before the Beverly Hills city council. In a clever fashion, the blog posts about the news in anticipation of the city council approving the project and doesn't guess locals will embrace the project: "Of course, for BH residents, the Candification [Candy & Candy is developer] of 9900 Wilshire means that City acreage which previously had been accessible to the general public will now be largely private grounds. ....Beverly Hills is and should continue to be a cosmopolitan, welcoming meeting-place. How appropriate then is it to have at our gateway a symbol of closure with its “For Residents Only” and “Do Not Enter” signs? Perhaps “the LA Country Club Towers” would be a better name for the 9900 project." Originally the project was slated to have 252 condominiums, and these renderings, which have been around for a while, may have changed.
