All the way back in August 2014, 6sqft featured the $5 million listing for this stylish co-op at 147 West 22nd Street in Chelsea, pointing out its trendy features such as a retractable garage-style glass door, massive open living space with wall-to-wall windows, and uber-contemporary kitchen. And as it turns out, the full-floor spread belonged to producer and director Steven Soderbergh, who’s best known for his work directing “Erin Brockovich,” “Traffic” (for which he won the Oscar), and “Ocean’s 11.” The Real Deal reports that he’s now finally found a buyer for the apartment, selling it for $4.8 million.

Some might argue that the best kind of apartment is one that provides a great balance between living and entertaining. And we all want a nice large space to accommodate guests; one complete with an open layout and natural light, no less. Well, this particular Chelsea apartment renovated by set design Philip Messina takes it to the next level. If a large gathering of admiring guests becomes too congested, creating a need for more space, this loft has a pretty interesting way to add some square footage to the already sizable entertaining space.
