Share a gorgeous lobby with the rich and famous at the iconic Osborne at 205 West 57th Street. Yes, you’re seeing that right, the Billionaires’ Row address has a notable vacancy: This one-bedroom lobby-level co-op is asking just $399,000. That may sound more like a stingy holiday tip for residents of nearby trophy towers like One57, but it gets you a classic Midtown West address shared by celebrities current and past including Jessica Chastain, former Knicks president Phil Jackson, and Leonard Bernstein.
The Osborne is just up the street from the glittering new Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th, which will feature a massive Nordstrom department store at its base. And remember the saying about how to get to Carnegie Hall? Well, in this case, the answer to that question is, “just cross the street.”
CityRealty architecture critic Carter Horsley calls the Osborne “palatial,” referring to its opulent Romanesque Revival and Italian Renaissance Palazzo styles and sumptuous and dazzling lobby. Though the building has an elevator, of course, you won’t have to use it–unless it’s to hit the building’s roof deck and take in the stunning Central Park views. And the park itself is a mere two blocks away.
There aren’t any pictures of the kitchen, though the floor plan shows something vaguely resembling a range and a sink in the apartment’s entryway. What we do see looks decent enough–it’s certainly not the smallest space we’ve seen. And we can’t think of a better way to get your foot in the door at what was one of the city’s first luxury apartment buildings.
