Soaring more than 1,000 feet over mid-town Manhattan, 53W53 provides 160 luxury residences atop the Museum of Modern Art
Designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, 53W53 creates a unique silhouette that pays homage to the classic towers that shaped the New York skyline, while creating a paradigm for the skyscraper of the future. The innovative exposed structural system — the diagrid — gives the facades of the tower a distinctly angular rhythm, which, when combined with floor-to-ceiling windows, creates a unique architectural context through which to view Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.
The sweeping 82-story, 750,000 square foot tower houses 160 high-end condominium residences. The tower includes an extensive package of amenities including a high-performance fitness facility, a 65-foot lap pool, wine room, private library, park view formal dining, and full-time concierge service.
The building’s lower floors include more than 50,000 square feet of new exhibition space for the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) distributed over three floors.
