With apartments holding strong as the hottest class in commercial real estate, developer Rick Caruso is testing the limits of the luxury category in Los Angeles with his residential complex that just opened on Burton Way.

In a 4-0 vote Tueday, the Glendale City Council chose Rick Caruso to build the city's long-stalled Town Center project--a 13-acre outdoor urban neighborhood featuring offices, restaurants and retail stores. Caruso, who beat out veteran Los Angeles-based developer Jerry Snyder, takes over a project that has been on the drawing board for 15 years but was never built because of changes in the design plan and developers.

The City Council in a 6-4 vote narrowly confirmed the controversial reappointment Thursday of Department of Water and Power board President Rick Caruso. The appointment was opposed by City Councilman Hal Bernson and environmentalists who are unhappy about Caruso's stand on preservation of the Chatsworth Reservoir, a dry DWP reservoir that has become an unofficial wildlife refuge. Caruso, a prominent developer, has said he wants to consider other uses for the property, particularly soccer fields.
