This 82-story condo building will have 145 apartments, a restaurant, and art galleries

The Jean Nouvel-designed MoMA Tower is scaling new heights, new construction photos published by NyConstructionPhoto reveal. We’ve been following the supertall adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art for quite some time now, and the last time we checked in, the building was more than halfway to the top.

The building has reached the 82nd floor, but it hasn’t officially topped out yet. In addition, a much larger portion of the building is now clad in the glass facade and exterior panels that echo the renderings of the building.

Eventually this supertall will soar to 1,050 feet and have 82 stories of condos, gallery space, and a restaurant. Sales on 53w53, as this building is officially stylized, have been underway since September 2015. Over a dozen condos are still available at the building, on StreetEasy, and prices range from $3.64 million, and go up to $43.95 million.

The project is being developed by Hines along with Goldman Sachs and the Pontiac Land Group. Construction is expected to wrap by the end of this year.
