53W53 unveiled

Hines, the international real estate firm, together with development partners Goldman Sachs Investment Group and Singapore-based Pontiac Land Group, have announced the grand opening of the sales gallery for 53W53, the gracefully tapered, 1,050-foot-high condominium tower adjacent to The Museum of Modern (MoMA) at 53 West 53rd Street. Designed by New York-based Thierry Despont, 53W53’s interior architect, the 10,000-square-foot sales gallery, located at 745 Fifth Avenue, offers a unique architectural context through a fully-built-out model residence enclosed inside a portion of the building’s intricately woven silver, black and gold metallic facade, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel.
“53W53 is the most architecturally significant addition to the New York skyline in recent years,” said David Penick, Managing Director at Hines. “We are proud to have assembled a stellar development team, including two of the world’s most talented architects, to create a limited, one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a piece of this architectural and technical masterpiece, which shares a special connection to The Museum of Modern Art, one of the most respected cultural institutions in the world.”
