You can live in the real-life Upper West Side condo building that stars as the fictional Arconia in Hulu’s mystery-comedy series Only Murders in the Building. Starring Martin Short, Steve Martin, and Selena Gomez, the show was filmed at The Belnord, a grand pre-war residence located at 225 West 86th Street. A renovated three-bedroom at the building just hit the market for $4,495,000.

The conversion of the historic Belnord into luxury condominiums is moving forward, with the property expected to be brought to market as early as the third quarter of the year. This morning, HFZ Capital announced they have tapped starchitect Robert A.M. Stern to helm the transformation, which would turn approximately 95 rental apartments in the full-block, 1908 building at 225 West 86th Street into fully converted and reimagined apartments. In all, the limestone-and-brick structure currently maintains 213 rental units.
