Duplex Penthouse at Jean Nouvel’s 53 West 53 Debuts, Asking $63.815 million

A nearly 8,000-square-foot penthouse, comprising the entire 76th and 77th floors at Jean Nouvel’s 82-story Midtown supertall, 53 West 53. This home isn’t currently listed but the identical duplex penthouse above, Penthouse 78, is priced at $63.815 million and is currently available. The four-bedroom home was designed in collaboration with ELLE DECOR, featuring high-end interior design by Joe Nahem of Fox-Nahem Associates.

A private elevator leads directly into the penthouse and a private foyer. The double-height great room boasts an 11-foot-wide gas fireplace, a clay installation by Peter Lane, and three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that offer pristine views of Central Park. Drawing inspiration from Penthouse 76’s impressive scale and proportions, Nahem opted for artisanal furniture pieces and rugs that he paired with artwork from the renowned Pace Gallery. 

Rising 82 stories above the Museum of Modern Art, 53 West 53 features 161 residences, including full-floor homes and duplex penthouses with private elevators. Pricing for remaining residences starts at $3.35 million.
