It took while, but the Jean Nouvel-designed supertall tower at 53 West 53rd Street, known as the MoMA Tower, is solidly on the road to reality. Last week, it was reported that developer Hines bought its last needed chunk of development rights, and today, the Real Deal brings buckets of juicy details from a recently filed application with the attorney general's office. The application reveals that the 1,050-foot tower will hold 140 condos, including six penthouses, and 30 staff quarters. The plan is still being reviewed, so all of this is subject to change, but as it stands, the largest penthouse will be a duplex measuring 7,892 square feet, and the smallest staff unit will measure a comfortable 417 square feet.
The application did not reveal any prices except for that of "the resident manager's unit," which will be priced at $3,115 per square foot. The staff units will be on floors 14 to 16.
Unlike its supertall brethren, 53 West 53rd does not have many large units. The Real Deal says there are 32 one-bedroom apartments, 51 two-bedrooms, 47 three-bedrooms, nine four-bedrooms and two five-bedroom units. The five-bedrooms both measure more than 7,000 square feet and are located on the 60th and 61st floors.
