This week we're taking a look at the construction along the Wilshire Corridor, between the 405 Freeway and Los Angeles Country Club. We'll refrain from calling this stretch the Golden Mile, as we can't handle the abuse from the comments. Yesterday, we looked at the Hollywood Video and Mann National sites in Westwood.
Our last visit and rendering reveal for the Carlyle on Wilshire was in April. Since then, the 24-story luxury tower has added a dozen or so more floors and begun the process of glassing up. The 78-unit building, from Elad Properties, will include a library, A Sports Club LA, private elevators for each residence, and furnishings provided by Fendi Casa. Plus, a private dining room and "white glove concierge service." Units go for between $2.9 million (the poor people units) to $12 and $15 million for the penthouses. The developer web site identifies a completion date of Fall 2008. Hmmm, judging by what we saw, we're thinking Spring 2009 sounds like a much lovelier time of year.
