CAA-Adjacent 40-Story Luxury High-Rise Touts Security Features
Roman Speron, regional manager of the Crescent Heights-developed building, said of what residents can expect at the soon-to-be opened tower: a "private SoHo House at a much higher level."
Luxury is going up on the border of Beverly Hills and Century City.
Come September, those seeking hotel-style living — including floor-to-ceiling windows, valet service and private poolside cabanas — in Los Angeles can make Ten Thousand their home if granted acceptance into the 283-unit residential tower.
Directly opposite The Los Angeles Country Club, two streets away from Creative Artists Agency, and within walking distance of Westfield Century City, the 470,000-square-foot residence, designed by Handel Architects, will feature two- and three-bedroom units that include two full bathrooms (dual vanities with marble countertops and floors), motorized window treatments,10-foot ceilings, California closets, built-in appliances, a front-loading washer and dryer and hardwood floors throughout each apartment, which averages 1,653 square-feet.
Developer Crescent Heights is prioritizing security as a top feature in the high-rise, with both a 24-hour monitored front desk and full-time security onsite at all times. Upon entering the driveway, residents will have the option of either parking in a steel-gated garage that has direct access to private elevators via a rear door, or dropping their vehicle at valet. Twelve-foot hedges will surround the 10000 Santa Monica Blvd. entrance, and closed-circuit cameras will monitor interiors, exteriors and the roof.
All common spaces will include privacy-enhancing shades, and a controlled access destination elevator system will be installed so that residents and guests can only access their eight-unit respective floor. Stairwell controls also will be implemented to prevent floor-to-floor access, and each of the 26 penthouse units will include sentry safes. If residents desire to access their apartment without being seen, two private back doors are available to avoid the front entrance.
"The difference maker is this private club type of atmosphere that you're living in where you have 75,000-square-foot amenities and 60 people on call," Crescent Heights regional manager Roman Speron told The Hollywood Reporter. "So whether you need someone to fix your computer or someone to get you some flowers or a person that teaches you how to use your body better from an education perspective, the team is pretty big and broad with a hospitality background."
Nearly seven years following Crescent Heights' land purchase in 2009 — the location was previously home to Fox Sports and ritzy restaurant Jimmy's — the building will employ and operate under more than 60 full-time staff when it opens in the fall, many of whom were recruited from boutique hotels in Los Angeles such as the Four Seasons and the SLS. Employees will include white-gloved doormen, personal attendants, butler services, private wait staff, an onsite lifestyle manager and tech concierge, among others. Speron referred to the newly constructed high-rise as a "private Soho House at a much higher level."
Included in the monthly rental fees, which will range in price from $8,500 to $25,000 per month depending on the unit (penthouses will cost more), residents will have access to 75,000 square-feet of amenity space. Among the general/indoor areas, Ten Thousand will house a resident lounge with a private dining area and catering kitchen, a private theater room, fully equipped board rooms, a children's room, a Pet Spaw and dog run, a bicycle room and repair station and private wine storage.
In addition to the indoor lap pool that boasts underwater speakers, residents will have access to complimentary fitness classes and studios, a spa treatment room, a sauna, three exercise studios and a wellness suite. Outdoors, Ten Thousand opens onto a private park that features a terrace, landscaped gardens, a spa and pool with private cabanas, fire pits, an outdoor theater and a lit tennis/basketball court. Speron also revealed that Crescent Heights is collaborating with Brent Bolthouse and Jeffrey Best to host private red-carpet events and parties on the tented courts.

Though Speron revealed that Crescent Heights has "over 1,500 people on a VIP list that we're calling and meeting with — the talent agencies and brokers houses in the area so that they are aware of what's going on here and that we have good relationship with them," the regional manager affirmed that acceptance is not based on anything specific, such as employment or societal background. "It's not a Soho House thing," he remarked.
"It's fair housing," he continued. "You can't really pick and choose who your people are that you allow access. But there are strict credit and criminal criteria that we have and we do residency verification and employment verification. There are very strict rules, but if they meet that criteria and have the right income in place and can afford to live here, then they of course have access."
Ten Thousand's leasing office will open in July.
