What: The Wilshire at River Oaks District topping out party.

Where: On the 17th floor of the luxury high-rise.

The scoop: There was no small reason for celebration of the project which topped out at 17 floors with reports of 70 percent sold and more than $96 million in sales. Offering champagne toasts to future residents and friends who gathered for the 365-degree views were Pelican Builders founder and high-rise maestro Robert Bland and company president Derek Darnell.

Keeping it all in the family, Ellen Bland Catering provided the party fare for the gathering of some 50 guests, many of whom are expected to begin moving in next summer when the project is complete.

Who: Robert F. Bland Jr., Sveta Darnell, John Brock, Michael Goldberg and future Wilshire residents Ally and Mike Seder, Laurie and Brent Swain, Kari and Orlando Alvarez, Arturo Mateos-Bay, Susan and Ray Betz, Barbara and Greg Rizzo, Shirley and Leonard Lebow, and J'anne and Jeff Rawson.
