The Jean Nouvel-designed tower, 53W53, that’s rising next to the Museum of Modern Art, is still on the rise toward its supertall status but in the meantime, a new rendering has surfaced that gives an idea as to how the museum’s galleries will be incorporated into the building’s design.

The new rendering is the first to show the building from the ground floor to its apex and while it may not be evident from the rendering alone, the building will have three MoMA gallery levels on floors two, four, and five before the building begins to taper off as it ascends to the crown.

When we last checked in on the building’s construction, the tower had already reached the 58th floor and some of its glass paneling had already been installed. The building is set to reach 82 stories once construction is complete.

As of right now, there are 13 apartments on the market, ranging from a one-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom that’s going for $3.255 million to a four-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom that wants a whopping $43.5 million.
