During a special Brokers Open event last week, The Agency officially unveiled the stunning new Bowery Design Group-designed model residence at The Carlyle Residences, the 24-story luxury condominium building offering 78 distinctive homes along the Golden Mile of L.A.’s Wilshire Corridor. This latest venture by Elad Group, one of the nation’s leading real estate companies, proves that the ultimate expression of contemporary luxury can be achieved by building up, not out.
Upon being appointed by Elad Group as the exclusive sales and marketing partner for The Carlyle Residences, The Agency was eager to engage the acclaimed interior design specialists at Bowery Design Group to design a new model residence.
“The Bowery aesthetic responds to interest we’ve received from buyers around the world who are looking for designer-finished homes in key markets,” says John Pallante, Vice President at The Agency. “This partnership provides an extraordinary option for buyers who are looking for the ultimate in effortless living.”
At the unveiling, guests and brokers mingled and nibbled as they toured the beautifully-designed space where the finest touches, like aromatherapy candles illuminating the bathroom to designer threads hanging in the master closet, set the mood for what it would feel like to actually live at one of The Carlyle Residences.
“The Carlyle is redefining luxury high-rise living with its expansive floor plans, stunning views of the city and hills, and unique finishes,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and co-founder of The Agency.
In official turn-key capacity, Bowery Design will provide buyers with the opportunity to purchase fully furnished residences in one of three unique design styles: casually chic, naturally modern or simply elegant.
“In addition to interest from overseas, many of our buyers are also locals looking to relocate from neighboring estates in Brentwood and Beverly Hills, and for some, this will be their first immersion into condo living,” said Samantha Sax, Director of Sales and Marketing for Elad Group. “The new model residences will provide a visual standard of the sophisticated, luxury high-rise lifestyle offered at The Carlyle. Elad is excited to facilitate this offering and we look forward to working with The Bowery Design Group and the accomplished team at The Agency.”
All 78 distinctive homes feature high-end Poggenpohl and Miele appliances with a centered kitchen island, floor-to-ceiling windows, polished Breccia Oniciata marble in the baths, a balcony, 42-inch living room fireplace with beautiful limestone hearth and private elevator bank that opens directly into each residence’s personal foyer.
Two and three-bedroom residences with up to four-and-a-half baths start at 2,772 and 3,535 square feet, respectively, with penthouses spanning up to 5,716 square feet. Furthermore, buyers will be able to customize new artwork, accessories and furniture, putting their taste-specific preferences and needs above all else.
The impressive scale and design of the model residence was evident to all who attended the event last week, yet the perks of calling oneself a Resident extend far beyond the private living quarters. A prominent feature of the condominium is the grand lobby, which serves not only as a breathtaking respite—a one-of-a-kind blown glass ceiling sculpture designed by the renowned Dale Chihuly hangs from the ceiling—but as an amenities hub offering 24-hour concierge services and valet.
From here you can access other common spaces including an owner’s lounge and club room; fitness center; multiple wine cellars; a beautifully-appointed private dining room together with butler’s pantry and private terrace; climate-controlled immersion pool; gardens boasting lush landscaping, private seating areas, a BBQ area and outdoor fireplace; and state-of-the-art security and privacy.
