Towering above the Museum of Modern Art, or MoMA, in Midtown Manhattan 53W53 stands like a beacon of high end living in the neighborhood. The condominium tower, designed by Thierry Despont and Jean Nouvel, stands at 1,050 feet and feature 145 residences in the space ranging from one to five bedrooms, including full floor homes and duplex penthouses with elevators.
The building’s latest renderings reveal the true art of the tower, a silver beam standing above the museum, tapering at the highest points into a thin blade in the sky. The design, from Pritzker Prize winner Jean Nouvel, is perfectly at home above the Museum of Modern Art, being a testament to modern architectural design and a beautiful addition to the midtown skyline.
Despont’s interiors are also beautifully in the designer’s character, with neutral tones, minimalist aesthetics, and a unique blend of material and spacing that feels both contemporary and cozy at once. In addition to the residences, the building also provides an indoor pool, wine cellar, and breathtaking views of Central Park from one of the best vantage points in town. For those looking for alternative views, the tower also features several full-floor residences offering views expanding in all directions.
Most of all though, the Museum of Modern Art below will have three additional gallery levels within the base of 53W53 on floors 2, 4, and 5. Residents will receive titles to a special benefactor W53 MoMA membership, that comes with several additional benefits and privileges at the museum as well as the potential to host private gatherings in the museums sculpture garden.
