Later this year, Norman Foster’s slender Midtown condo tower at 100 East 53rd Street will welcome its first residents, who’ve plunked down millions of dollars for the privilege of living next door to the iconic Seagram Building. But ahead of that, developer Aby Rosen is offering us an inside peek at the 63-story building’s model apartments.

While construction is still in progress, the development team has dedicated a full floor to these units, creating facsimiles of a studio and a two-bedroom for interested buyers.

The two-bedroom measures 1,970 square feet and comes with massive doors that are just under 10 feet tall. The condo features custom millwork by Foster’s firm Foster + Partners, along with wide-plank white oak flooring with a matte finish, and an Agora Black Turkish marble countertop in the powder room.

The condo building has a total of 94 apartments that range in size from studios to the four-bedroom penthouse that is currently on the market for $65 million. Among the currently available units, prices start at $2.25 million for a studio on the 16th floor of the building.

As for the studio, that measures 1,034 square feet—which isn’t exactly the size of a studio that most New Yorkers are likely familiar with. The kitchen here is fitted with an Italian Carrara marble countertop and backsplash, and a stainless steel wall shelf with LED lighting.

The first inside renderings for this project were released back in October 2015, and this images now offer the first real look inside the skyscraper. The building topped out last year, and construction is supposed to wrap sometime towards the end of this year.

Among the first few residents who have reportedly purchased condos here are George and Amal Clooney, and Cindy Crawford and her husband Randy Gerber.
