Symphony House

235 West 56th Street   |   Hell's Kitchen

Symphony House is a beautifully appointed luxury high-rise. Located in the fashionable West 50's, slightly west of Carnegie Hall and south of Lincoln Center, Symphony House is a very special residence created expressly for those who appreciate the art of living well. When you live at the Symphony House, you'll never again miss a Baryshnikov ballet, Bernstein concert, or Sondheim musical because of the tyranny of time. You'll be seated comfortably by curtain time because you live front and center. And you'll be dining at Cafe des Artistes or comfortably at home while the rest of the crowd scurries after taxis and suffers through traffic jams.

This very large, orange-brown brick rental tower has a handsome polished red granite base and a very handsome entrance and plaza. The building's south facade is distinguished by nine columns of attractive rounded balconies. The building has a health club and pool, garage, doorman, concierge, bicycle room, storage room, sundeck, recreation room, laundry on every floor, video security and valet service. It does not permit dogs.

The building's neighborhood has been improving steadily since it was erected, and a supermarket opened nearby on 57th Street in 1998, removing one of the major problems for Midtown residents. This area has become very desirable as it is one block from Carnegie Hall, two blocks from Columbus Circle, three blocks from Central Park and close to many theme restaurants along 57th Street and not too far from the new Times Square and Theatre District. There are many new major towers in the vicinity including the Hearst Tower designed by Sir Norman Foster directly across Eighth Avenue, and the Time Warner Center, which has a Whole Foods store in its basement, on Columbus Circle. Public transportation is excellent and new construction, including a major office building directly across 56th Street, is continuing in the area.
