Per Curbed today, units in this building have hit the market, asking between $3.17 million and $50.9 million.The listings include some renders that we haven't seen before. I'll post a few here, but be sure to check out the link for all of them (and apologies if I'm re-posting stuff we've already seen, there's a lot to keep track of):


Quote:
Jean Nouvel's MoMA Tower has been one of the most anticipated projects slated for New York City for over a decade. Although construction only started earlier this year, murmurs that the apartments would not be listed publicly squashed all dreams of gratuitous looks into 53W53—until now. This afternoon, nine of the 1,050-foot tower's 139 apartments showed up on the market, flaunting a few never-before-seen renderings, floorplans, and asks between $3.17 million and $50.9 million. It's like Christmas in September; this is quite the haul.

Thierry Despont, who's also behind the awaited Woolworth Building condos, is handling the building's interiors. Of course they're luxurious: kitchens will have custom Molteni cabinetry, statuary marble countertops and backlit backsplash, and Miele and Sub-Zero appliances; master bathrooms will have Dornbracht fixtures and heated Verona limestone slab floors, and Noir St. Laurent marble and Peruvian golden travertine feature walls; the apartments will have 4-inch solid American oak floors throughout.

The 139 condos won't only come with bragging rights to one of the city's most well-known addresses, but residents will also be given a complimentary Benefactor W53 membership to the Museum of Modern Art which includes benefits like unlimited free admission, and access to preview events, screenings, and small, private curatorial talks. (The membership can also be purchased for $3,000 a year, which seems like chump change compared to the ask of the condos.)



































Personally, the window obstructions and funky layouts would probably keep me from ever wanting to actually live in this tower, but boy, I wouldn't mind living somewhere with a direct view of it

I mean, don't get me wrong, it's still a glorious building, and the apartments look like the lap of luxury. But for some of the reasons already described in this thread, I think if I was a mega-millionaire looking to buy in Midtown, I would hedge towards Steinway, Nordstrom and 220 CPS over this.

Also, for those that recall a certain argument a couple pages back about the ultra-high value of these units compared with the other Billionaires Row towers, I'll just leave this here...

I think that the units that feature the diagonals in the perimeter wall will command a higher price because they are considered a desirable architectural feature. It is no different from, say, the John Hancock Center in Chicago, where the units that feature the diagonals sell at a premium:

Not to mention the fact that those windows are huge.

Nice renders. Since this building is pretty detailed, I would imagine it will rise fairly slowly, but by the looks of it, it should be well worth the wait.

The interiors are fabulous indeed. I also don't see the beef with the cross bracing cause those windows are huge and you can see how bright the inside is. I also think it adds to the uniqueness of the building.
Quite honestly considering the prices and the location, I'd live in that building before any of the other towers on billionaires row, The location is great and the skyline views are probably the best out of all those towers (not much into the Central Park view personally) tho 220 CPS with its location and architecture would be my 1A, but again the prices...
