River Oaks District-adjacent high-rise The Wilshire toasted its grand opening in style, with bubbly aplenty and mouthwatering bites from neighboring Steak 48. Attendees toured the building’s impressive pool deck — contortionist Rachel Reaneau performed in the pool! — and admired a selection of contemporary art curated by the Barbara Davis Gallery. Meanwhile, 100 guests raised a glass for the last time inside La Colombe d’Or’s ballroom. Renderings of the forthcoming highrise, Hines’ Residences at La Colombe d’Or, designed by Jorge Munoz and Lauren Rottet, were unveiled to great enthusiasm and applause.
