The Orion Building

New York

The Orion is a towering, 60-story, 551-unit glass residential building in Midtown West that was completed in 2006 and has since been the apple of many buyer’s and renter’s eyes. It is pricey, but it dazzles. No wonder it was named of after one of the most conspicuous constellations in the sky.
Located at 350 West 42nd Street, the Orion was the first modern residential tower to bring sleek and sophisticated living to the very West Side of Times Square. Forget some complaints about it being too close to the Port Authority, or that it is a little hectic on the streets outside the lobby door. The Orion puts its residents smack dab between 8th and 9th avenues, where restaurants, Times Square, the Theater District and myriad subway and busses are right outside your door.

The luxurious units at The Orion were so coveted when the building was first being sold it set off a pre-sale frenzy. The building continues to prove to be a popular, but exclusive address for a fortunate few. If you can pay your way into this superstar building, you will get the royal treatment. Voted one of the top amenity and service buildings in NYC, The Orion offers a full-time doorman, on-site garage, concierge services and an amazing three-story amenity suite that includes a fitness center by La Palestra, lap pool, whirlpool, club and screening room, business center, multiple sundecks and security systems. Heck, even the huge 29th-floor laundry room commands killer views of Manhattan and the Hudson River.
