FirstService Residential, the leading property management company in North America, announced that it has been appointed to oversee the management of 53 West 53rd Street, an 82-story luxury condominium property in Midtown Manhattan. Located adjacent to and directly above the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the property features 161 residences, and offers buyers an unrivaled suite of amenities and services. Several of the building’s lower floors will be utilized as gallery space at MoMA, with the remainder of the building devoted to the condos, restaurant and amenities of 53 West 53rd. 

Designed by acclaimed architect Jean Nouvel, the sleek, 1,050-foot tower is one of the most architecturally unique buildings in New York. With its tapered shape and angular structural pattern, the building has already established itself as a distinctive part of the city’s skyline.

The property is being developed by a joint-venture partnership of Hines, Pontiac Land Group and Goldman Sachs.

“We worked closely with MoMA to create this building as a fitting companion to the world-renowned museum, with a structure that exudes design ingenuity paired with luxury living of the highest level,” said David Penick, Managing Director from Hines. “To deliver this experience to our residents requires a unique level of five-star, hospitality-style services. We selected FirstService Residential as the managing agent of 53 West 53rd because of their wealth of experience managing luxury high-rises and proven track record of providing residents with an unparalleled living experience.”
