53W53 will be an 82-story condominium tower in Midtown Manhattan. Designed by noted starchitect Jean Nouvel, 53W53 will feature 160 “high-end” (does New York City have any condos that *aren’t* high-end?) units. Developed by Hines (let’s hear it for River Point!) and Pontiac Land Group, the project will also include 52,000 square feet of exhibition space for the adjacent Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
You should be quite familiar by now with the general contractor on 53W53; Lendlease is working on several Chicago projects, including 640 North Wells, 151 North Franklin, One Bennett Park, and Riverline.
