Jean Nouvel-designed condo tower 53W53, NY
53W53 is a 1,050-feet-high residential skyscraper in Midtown New York designed by Jean Nouvel and it is slated for completion in 2018. The elegant tower, with its glass and exposed steel diagrid structure, will create one-of-a-kind floor plans in the condominiums, ranging from one-bedrooms to duplex penthouses and full-floor layouts. Each unit will have sloping windows and muscular, slanting columns, giving New York-based interior designer Thierry W. Despont a challenging set of parameters.
Sales at the Jean Nouvel-designed condo tower at 53 West 53rd Street in Midtown are set to commence next week, with prices at the 139-unit building starting at $3 million and its duplex penthouse asking more than $70 million. The long-delayed project was conceived in 2006 before being shelved amid the financial crisis. The 82-story, 1,050-foot tall tower will rise near the corner of Sixth Avenue, between West 53rd and West 54th Streets, on land once owned by the adjacent Museum of Modern Art. Floor plans revealed last year placed the building’s total residential space at more than 442,000 square feet. Houston-based Hines is developing the project with Goldman Sachs and Singapore-based Pontiac Land Group.
