53 West 53

Catering to the demand for luxury residences by an elite clientele, Hines is developing 53 West 53, an iconic high-rise in midtown Manhattan adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The building's lower three floors include 36,000 square feet of new exhibition space for the museum. The landmark architectural tower has been described by former New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff as “the most exhilarating addition to the city's skyline in a generation.”

Designed by Pritzker Prize-laureate Jean Nouvel, the tower’s unique silhouette gracefully tapers as it rises to a distinctive 1,050-foot-tall spire. The striking 82-story edifice offers 162 super-luxurious condominium residences to discerning buyers. Triple-glazed, floor-to-ceiling windows minimize exterior noise and temperature variations with horizontal and vertical soundproofing providing acoustic privacy. All windows are fitted with custom-designed, motorized window shades.

We started small in New York Residential, with architectural projects in SoHo and the West Village. Now, we are making an indelible contribution to the city’s luxury market…

With interiors by noted international architect Thierry Despont, who is known for luxe private homes and prime hotels, each residence has furniture-grade mahogany doors throughout. Custom-designed kitchens feature back-lit, translucent Cararra marble backsplashes and countertops with fully-integrated sub-zero refrigerator/freezers, Miele® ovens and low-profile cooktops. Master bathrooms offer Lefroy Brooks® cast-iron soaking tubs and solid carved Verona limestone vanity sinks.

"I approached the design of 53 West 53 as if each residence was a private home commission," explained Mr. Despont.

An extensive package of amenities include breathtaking New York City and Central Park views; spectacular common areas; a high-performance wellness center including an elegant 65-foot lap pool surrounded by vertical gardens designed by Patrick Blanc of Paris, a gym, a squash court, and a golf simulator; full-time concierge service; plus a special membership to the Museum of Modern Art.

Hines’ East Region CEO Christopher Hughes commented, “We started small in New York Residential, with architectural projects in SoHo and the West Village. Now, we are making an indelible contribution to the city’s luxury market, as well as on its skyline. Along with the highly sophisticated product we are creating and the irreplaceable location above MoMA, we definitely have a product that will be prominent on the skyline. While we are known for many office skyscrapers in the Tri-State Area, I think people will be amazed at how we have overlaid the Hines standard of quality to a residential tower designed to be a good, long-term investment for many families for generations to come.”

Partnering with Goldman Sachs Real Estate Principal Investment Area and Pontiac Land Group of Singapore, Hines upholds its uncompromising standards of quality for 53 West 53, which represents an enduring investment in luxury and an impressive addition to the museum.

Units ranging in size from 1,221 to 7,973 square feet are priced from $3 million to $70+ million and include one- to five-bedroom apartments, full-floor residences and duplex penthouses with private elevators.
