Property Description

Comprising the entire 64th floor at 53 West 53, this palatial residence features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and north-, south-, east-, and west-facing exposures. Gracious proportions and ceilings ranging up to approximately 11 feet set the awe-inspiring stage for world-renowned designer Thierry Desponts masterfully conceived interiors. Bespoke detailing typically reserved for privately commissioned homes abounds, while a rich yet soft palette of museum-quality finishes imbues each space with both modern glamour and timeless elegance.

With direct elevator access, the exquisite home opens upon a sprawling gallery that separates living and entertainment spaces from the private bedroom wing. To the north, a spectacular 3810" x 367" living room is surrounded by three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that artfully frame north-, west-, and east-facing views that dazzle at every moment of day or night. The space flows into the massive eat-in kitchen designed by Thierry Despont for Molteni and offering north- and west-facing views. Anchored by an oversized center island, the kitchen features polished statuary marble countertops and a back-lit statuary backsplash that complement back-painted glass cabinetry with polished nickel detailing and Dornbracht fixtures. The extensive suite of appliances by Miele and Sub-Zero includes two fully integrated refrigerators and freezers, a six-burner cooktop with fully vented hood, two integrated dishwashers, double wall oven, speed oven, steam oven, dual under-counter wine refrigerators, and an integrated coffee maker.

The corner primary suite is a study in grandeur, featuring a 192 x 309" bedroom wrapped in three walls of glass to the north, south, and west; multiple closets including an oversized walk-in and a windowed 1011 x 142" dressing room; and a spacious, windowed en suite bath with radiant heated floors. Elegantly appointed in polished Noir St. Laurent marble, high-honed Verona limestone, and polished Persian golden travertine with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures throughout, the primary bathroom features two separate custom carved vanities, a cast iron Lefroy Brooks soaking tub, freestanding shower, private water closet with commode and bidet, and a large linen closet. Three additional bedrooms each offer an en suite bathroom clad in high-honed Verona limestone with polished nickel Dornbracht fixtures. Bedroom Two features bright south- and east-facing views, while bedrooms Three and Four enjoy easterly light. Completing the residence are a beautifully appointed powder room, a discreet utility room with side-by-side washer and vented dryer, and a separate service entrance for the ultimate in privacy. No detail has been overlooked, from the custom interior lighting design by Thierry Despont in collaboration with Bill Schwinghammer, to the motorized Lutron solar shades throughout with additional blackout shades in each bedroom, to the supply of humidified and filtered fresh air throughout the home.

With architecture by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel and interiors by the legendary Thierry Despont, 53 West 53 is a true icon, rising 1,050 feet in the heart of Manhattan against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park and the surrounding cityscape. Over 30,000 square feet of extraordinary amenities and deeply personalized, five-star-hotel-level services transcend even the most discerning expectations.

Midtown West | Manhattan

Quick Profile

People, yellow cabs, bright lights, big crowds, 24-hour eateries and just about every type of store imaginable. it’s a frenetic buzz that only a few places on the globe can offer. And that’s just one part of it. Midtown West is the birthplace of hustle and bustle and it’s bordered by 42nd to the south, 59th Street to the north, 8th Avenue to the west, and 5th Avenue to the east. 

Midtown West is not as residential as other neighborhoods in Manhattan. The bustling part of Midtown West is 42nd Street between Times Square and 8th Avenues where the retail and office space, theatres, and attractions are. No matter what time of day it is, you'll always find activity there. 

Residential buildings lay near the western end of Midtown West beginning around 8th Avenue. 

Location, location, location. Of all the neighborhoods and enclaves of Manhattan, Midtown West is perhaps the most commutable place to live, visit, or work. It contains one of the highest concentrations of subway lines in the Big Apple. A, C, E, N, Q, R, 1, 2, 3, and the 7 train. The transit system feeds the streets with commuters from everywhere. The Port Authority Bus Terminal and nearby Penn Station adds to the number of people that flood Midtown on any given day. 

It’s one of the easiest places in all of Manhattan to navigate because it’s a true grid. Uptown, street numbers go up. Downtown, street numbers go down. It’s the same concept from east to west. You really can’t get lost in Midtown West.
