Candy Spelling Headed for The Carlyle on Wilshire!

On July 1, Candy Spelling will become the newest temporary resident of The Carlyle Residences on Wilshire, AOL Real Estate has learned. Spelling, who is expected to close on the sale of her 123-room home known as The Manor -- a.k.a. America's most expensive listing -- was widely expected to move into a two-story penthouse atop a Century City residential building, which has not been completed.

Apparently the 16,000-square-foot unit that she paid $47 million for in 2008 has not been completed -- and she instead is moving to the crescent-shaped luxury building known as The Carlyle.

Other Carlyle residents include Larry King, Bruce Willis and Paul Anka. Maria Shriver looked at units there when she initially separated from former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Spelling, who visited The Carlyle at least five times before inking her deal late Thursday, will be occupying a unit that is about 5,600 square feet -- one-tenth the space of The Manor's 56,500 square feet.

The Carlyle is a high-security building along the famed Wilshire Corridor. Its unique crescent shape has already made it a much-photographed landmark in Los Angeles. Each of the 78 units is accessible only by private elevator and the building is staffed with a 24-hour concierge, doorman and valet. The 24-story building -- the last permitted high-rise along the so-called "Golden Mile" -- has a private wine cellar.

The building, developed by Elad Properties, which also developed New York's Plaza Hotel, is 70 percent sold. And you can expect that Spelling's presence in the building will further ratchet up the building's already-high cache. Coldwell Banker uber-agent Valerie Fitzgerald is the director of sales and marketing.
