Designed by the eminent French architect Jean Nouvel, with gallery space of New York’s iconic Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) taking up the lower floors, 53W53 is a culturally significant skyscraper any art aficionado would be proud to live in. Residence 62, which occupies the entire 62nd floor, offers 6,954 sq ft of Thierry Despont–designed interior space, fitted with custom furnishings including Molteni kitchen cabinetry and a sink carved from Verona limestone. Four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms are integrated into this stylish space, complete with hand-stained American oak floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and views over Central Park. Behind the building’s distinct geometric facade you’ll find a residents-only state-of-the-art theater, 46th-floor double-height lounge and formal dining room. There is a wellness center and 65-ft lap pool, golf simulator and wine-tasting area, as well as Patrick Blanc–designed vertical gardens. Residents are also given a deeded MoMA membership, so you can browse the worldclass art downstairs whenever the mood takes you.
