For nearly eight years, the steel frame of a 28-story building on Wilshire Boulevard between Westwood and Beverly Hills sat rusting as a skeletal reminder of a dream that had soured. In the early 1980s, 11 projects were planned to help create the "Golden Mile," Los Angeles' version of high-rise luxury condominium living. But developers say that high interest rates, a glut of overpriced condominiums and the disdain of home buyers for living in high-rise buildings led to a bust.

Westwood residents fighting a proposed 27-story high-rise on Wilshire Boulevard had hoped that the community's new design-review ordinance would give them the muscle to lop off five or six stories from the $75-million condominium project. What they got Thursday was a resounding "no" from the city's Planning Commission and a scolding from Dan Garcia, the panel's president. Garcia described their effort as a "transparent attempt" to get around city approvals for the project.

Under heavy pressure from Westside Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky, a Los Angeles City Council committee on Tuesday rejected the recommendation of the city's Planning Commission and voted to approve a moratorium on high-rise development along the congested Wilshire Corridor. But San Fernando Valley Councilman Hal Bernson, chairman of the Planning and Environment Committee, warned Yaroslavsky that he may change his mind when the moratorium goes to the City Council for final approval.

An unlikely modern variant has blossomed as a mural on Wilshire Boulevard's so-called Golden Mile--Capitalist Realism, perhaps? Glowing in bright colors from the fence around a construction project near Westwood, the painting features a bare-chested blacksmith with his hammer held high.

The glorious galas: The Philharmonic Ball; Vista Del Mar Associates' theater gala surrounding "Jerome Robbins' Broadway"; the Jewel Gala for the USC School of Fine Arts; the Westside Guild of Childrens Hospital's Deck the Halls dinner and dance; the Hollywood Salute to Dennis Weaver. On Tuesday, 550 of the city's elite dined and danced on stage at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. White chrysanthemums rose from silver Champagne buckets on silver stilts. Vodka accompanied the cold caviar soup.
