If you’re looking for a great building in Midtown Manhattan, 53W53 offers exquisite residences and a long list of impressive amenities.
Extending 1,050 feet into the air, 53W53 is being billed as the most architecturally significant addition to the New York skyline in recent years. The talent behind this impressive feat is Jean Nouvel, who succeeded at striking a balance between New York’s classic towers and a future that’s led by skyscrapers. Thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows and innovative exposed structural system, 53W53 makes for a beautiful modern addition to the skyline.
The 139 residences in this building were designed by Thierry Despont. As a result of Despont’s attention to detail, the best way to describe each interior is with the phrase “finely tailored.” Ample natural light is the guiding element that ties together everything throughout every interior space. From the living room to the kitchen to the master bedroom, windows that extend from floor to ceiling allow for the spaces to be bathed in natural light.
Not only do the residences in 53W53 feature fully bespoke kitchens and bathrooms, but they also have beautiful doors carefully crafted from mahogany. Despont’s focus on creating spaces that are modern, functional and beautiful has resulted in the perfect place to call home.
Appealing amenities are a significant part of the luxury Manhattan condo experience. So if you’re giving serious consideration to this building, you’ll be happy to know that it does not disappoint. 53W53 has a 24-hour doorman and concierge. Residents can utilize the private service and delivery entrance, as well as the private formal dining room. Not only does the Wellness Center provide a convenient way to stay fit, but it also offers a sauna and steam room.
A 65-foot lap pool, hot tub, children’s playroom, wine tasting room, golf simulator, lobby library and complimentary MoMA membership round out the standard amenities. And for an additional fee, residents can also enjoy housekeeping service, floral delivery, pet walking and/or curbside valet parking.
Spanning a total of 82 stories, the 139 units in this building range in size from 1-bedrooms to duplex penthouses with private elevators. Pricing has yet to be released.
Because this building is integrated directly into The Museum of Modern Art’s urban compass, it provides cultural opportunities that are unparalleled. The prime location of 53W53 also means that everything from FIfth Avenue’s luxury shopping to Central Park are within a very close radius. This building makes it easy to take advantage of all the best that New York City has to offer.
