An official leasing website has revealed final renderings for Ten Thousand, a 40-story apartment tower which recently topped out in Century City.

The project from Miami-based developer Crescent Heights consists of shimmering glass-clad structure featuring 283 two- and three-bedroom apartments.  According to a recent report from the Los Angeles Times, the building will come replete with an over-the-top array of hotel-like amenities, including butlers, laundry and cleaning services, grocery delivery, and a 24-hour concierge.  In total, Ten Thousand will employ more than 50 full-time staff members.

According to the website of Handel Architects, the design of the 483-foot tall tower features "four crystal-like quadrants," with balconies that create sharp angles along the north and south facades.  The building's sloping roofline provides a stark contrast with the rest of the flat-topped, modernist Century City skyline.

Ten Thousand leads a pack of skyline-altering developings now taking shape along the Los Angeles - Beverly Hills border, including a new Waldorf Astoria hotel and a mid-rise complex designed by famed architect Richard Meier.

Further west, construction is expected to begin next month for a $2.5-billion development that will add two 46-story residential towers behind the iconic Century Plaza Hotel.
