Jean Nouvel's 53rd Street tower has been in the works for the better part of a decade, but it's only recently that progress has been made on the supertall residential building. Sales of its luxury condos launched this year (with a cushy sales office to entice potential buyers), and now, construction is underway on 53W53. New photos by NYConstructionPhoto show that work on the foundation is happening, with some support beams being put into place. The building isn't expected to be completed for a couple more years (move-ins will happen in 2018), but once finished, it'll be home to plush amenities (a full-service gym and spa, private screening room, wine cellar), as well as new galleries for the Museum of Modern Art next door.
