Hines, Pontiac Land Group List Duplex Penthouse at 53 West 53 Condo Tower for $64M

Elle Décor has collaborated with Pontiac Land Group and Hines on a duplex penthouse atop 53 West 53, a residential condominium tower rising above the Museum of Modern Art in Midtown Manhattan. Designed by Fox-Nahem Associates, the 7,973-square-foot unit is listed for $63.815 million. 

Elle Décor and Fox-Nahem are leading authorities in the sophisticated style of luxury living that we have developed at 53 West 53, so it felt organic to partner with them on a collective vision for Penthouse 76,” said Samantha Sax, chief marketing officer of Pontiac Land U.S. “Together, we sought to create a sophisticated and distinctly metropolitan home in one of 53 West 53’s crowning residences that would authentically convey what the pinnacle of Manhattan living can be.” 

The penthouse is featured on the cover of the March 2023 issue of Elle Décor. Douglas Elliman is the project’s sales and marketing agency.
