The financial markets are teetering, the real estate market is sinking, but the woes of world will not affect the very fancy Carlyle on Wilshire. Developer Elad, also behind NYC's slightly traumatic Plaza project in NYC, is putting up this 24-story building at 10776 Wilshire. It's not immediately clear how many units have sold, but the building is priced from $2.9 million-$20 million Last we heard, the building was pitching itself as a paparazzi-proof building with Israeli-trained security guards. (Beer-drinking surfers would have been cheaper and just as effective.) Meanwhile, the last information out there; This building is set to open in the first quarter of 2009.
