Savor The Carlyle Residences @ 10776 Wilshire Boulevard -- Developers of NY's Plaza Hotel Bring Fendi Casa and White-Glove Concierge Service to LA

Last night we attended an event at The Carlyle Residences at 10776 Wilshire Boulevard, a 74-unit building that sets a new standard in luxury living for an area already known for its feathered nests.

Pull up to the porte-cochere and a valet whisks away your car. Then enter into the lobby which has one of the finest Dale Chihuly chandeliers around.

Prices range from $2.4 million to penthouses that top $11 million (with over 5,000 sq ft of living area). If you're in the market for a lofty place above the Wilshire Corridor, be sure to stop by the Carlyle.

The Carlyle was developed by Elad Properties, which also developed New York's Plaza Hotel. Sold by the Valerie Fitzgerald Group.
