SHVO, the luxury real estate development and investment firm, today announces plans for the first new condominium to be constructed in Beverly Hills in a decade, Mandarin Oriental Residences, Beverly Hills at 9200 Wilshire Boulevard. The project is financed through a joint venture between SHVO and Deutsche Finance America. SHVO is also developing the Mandarin Oriental Residences at 685 Fifth Avenue in New York.
The property will be Mandarin Oriental’s first West Coast residential location and the brand’s first standalone residential concept to open in the United States. Located steps away from the “Golden Triangle” of Beverly Hills, the 323,000-square-foot development will bring several beloved world-renowned brands to the West Coast – and together – for the first time, creating a new paradigm in luxury condominium living.
SHVO has developed a forward-thinking best-in-class offering with residents having access to hotel-inspired living, encompassing the legendary amenities and five-star service of a Mandarin Oriental, with the added security and privacy of a residential only building.
Residents will enjoy the ultimate convenience of a private porte-cochere with valet parking, a dedicated concierge team, and private amenities including a library, lounge, and dedicated space for meetings. An expansive rooftop sanctuary will feature a sun-drenched pool, wellness and state of the art fitness center, and indoor-outdoor yoga and meditation spaces.
Michelin-starred Chef Daniel Boulud will also be making his West Coast debut at the property, operating a private rooftop pool service and lounge and exclusive in-home dining experiences for owners. Boulud will also open a restaurant at the base of the building, open to the public and designed by Marc Ange.
Luxury design studio 1508 London has overseen the interior design of the 54 luxurious residences, all featuring outdoor space, in its first U.S. assignment. A selection of exquisitely curated furniture by 1508 London and complete hotel accessory packages curated by Mandarin Oriental, including Frette sheets and George Jensen silver, will be available to those seeking the ultimate convenience of a white glove, turnkey residences.
The lush landscaping at the property, which includes the Palm Courtyard, is designed by renowned Swiss landscape designer Enzo Enea, seamlessly merging Asian influences inspired by Mandarin Oriental with relaxed Southern California living. Select residences will also feature an interior Bonsai Garden by Enea.
