53W53, 53 West 53rd Street

Between Fifth Avenue & Sixth Avenue

Description of 53W53

High above the Museum of Modern Art, mere blocks from Central Park and Fifth Avenue, in the epicenter of New York’s global business, arts, theater and cultural districts, a modern, elegantly tapering tower is rising. Designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel, 53 West 53rd Street is like no other building in the world. Behind its striking façade are impeccably detailed residences designed by renowned interior architect Thierry Despont, each spacious and light-filled, with panoramic views framed unlike any before. The pinnacle of New York living, 53W53 offers a truly modern view.

53W53's top-of-the-line amenities include a 65' lap pool, double-height lounge with private dining room overlooking Central Park, squash court, golf simulator, private screening room, 24-hour doorman and concierge service, and porter services. It is well situated above the Museum of Modern Art and blocks away from Central Park.

Carter Horsley's Review of 53W53

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very impressive, tall, tapering tower at 53 West 53rd Street is perhaps the best of the "Supertall" skyscrapers that began sprouting in Manhattan in the first dozen or so years of this millennium.  It was designed by Jean Nouvel, the French architect who won the Pritzker Prize in 2008, for Hines Interests of Houston. 

A mixed-use building, it contains expansion space for the Museum of Modern Art, a hotel and apartments in its mid-block location at the west end of the museum's properties. " Read Carter's Full Review
