Los Angeles, CA (April 2008) – From the owners of the iconic Plaza Hotel in New York, and in collaboration with Fendi Casa, Elad Properties announces first venture into Los Angeles - The Carlyle Residences.
The Carlyle is bringing the ultimate in elegant, first-class living to the heart of Los Angeles at the center of the Wilshire Corridor’s “Golden Mile.” Its a 24-story crescent-shaped building with 78 private luxury residences ranging in size from 2,700 – 5,000 sq. ft., each with its own private elevator entrance.

The last permitted high-rise on the Wilshire Corridor, The Carlyle Residences is destined to be its most opulent and outstanding development with the highest level of finishes and amenities. The building is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2009.
According to Miki Naftali, CEO of Elad Properties, “There is a significant appetite for high-rise luxury living in Los Angeles and we are bullish that this will continue to grow at the top of the market – where buyers are looking for the best properties, highest quality and service, while simplifying living.”

Elad Properties has made a serious commitment on the West Coast, including the relocation of Chief Operating Officer Thomas Elliot to Los Angeles to oversee all of the West Coast ventures for the company.
“The opportunity to enter the Los Angeles market in such a superb location, with a building that offers sweeping views of the Santa Monica mountains and the Pacific Ocean, reflects our continuing strategy of selecting the best sites in highly competitive markets for the highest end luxury development,” said Thomas Elliott, COO of Elad Properties West of their first Los Angeles venture.
Responsible for the record-setting and highly acclaimed renovation of the landmark Plaza Hotel in New York City, Elad consistently crafts classic, timeless, award-winning residences and The Carlyle represents the latest chapter in their portfolio of exclusive properties.

Overseas, Elad’s Norman Foster-designed Beach Road project is currently one of the most anticipated mixed-use developments in Singapore.
Earlier this year Elad purchased the 34.5-acre site of The New Frontier on The Strip in Las Vegas, which was recently demolished to make way for development of the Plaza Las Vegas. Mr. Naftali describes the site as “the last and best available prime site in Las Vegas.” Plans call for a multi-use development including a six-diamond hotel with the Plaza brand, ultra luxury residences, a casino, the Plaza retail collection, convention space and destination restaurants.
