The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) reopened last fall in the wake of a expansion and renovation, but we at CityRealty have had our eye on 53W53, the sculptural tower soaring tower rising besing and above MoMa's famous galleries and garden. Its supertall height of 1,050 feet and slender, tapered profile make it arguably the most exciting addition to the New York City skyline in decades. A web-like exposed structural system, known as a diagrid, was conceived by engineers and Pritzker Prize laureate Jean Nouvel. Earlier the month, the Hines-led development team commenced closings. While the none of the sales have yet been publically recorded by the city, the building is now ready to welcome its first residents.
Current availabilites range from $3.5 million for a one-bedroom to $63.82 million for a four-bedroom duplex penthouse.

All units boast interiors by Thierry Despont that make the most of both the diagrid and spectacular views of the city skyline and Central Park. The team commissioned acclaimed interior designers to fashion model apartments to fully convey the beautiful living spaces that can be had by residents. For his first project in the Americas, Hong Kong designer Andre Fu designed a two-bedroom model unit on the 36th floor with pieces from his new lifestyle brand Andre Fu Living. Also on the 36th floor, AD100 firm Roman and Williams’ three-bedroom model unit is its first to be outfitted solely with furnishings from its own RW Guild collection.

Features include gracious proportions, soaring ceilings, and elegantly crafted walnut doors with custom bronze hardware. The kitchens are enclosed behind pocket doors and outfitted with statuary marble countertops, backlit backsplashes with custom back-painted glass cabinetry, and Miele appliances. Marble master baths come finished with radiant heated floors, custom-carved stone vanities, and Dornbacht fittings and accessories.
53W53 makes the most of its location by including a Perpetual Benefactor W53 membership to MoMA with the purchase of each unit. This includes carefully curated benefits and the possibility of the building hosting private events in the museum’s famous sculpture garden.
In the building, over 30,000 square feet of amenities include a double-height lounge facing Central Park, a state-of-the-art wellness center managed by The Wright Fit, a 65’ lap pool, a regulation squash court, a golf simulator, a private screening room, a private theater, and a double-height wine tasting room. Storage, temperature-controlled wine vaults, maid service, floral delivery, pantry restocking, pet concierge service, and curbside valet parking are available for an additional fee.
