Foster + Partners’ 100 East 53rd Street becomes “Selene” in Midtown East, Manhattan
Occupancy is available for Selene, a 63-story residential skyscraper located at 100 East 53rd Street in Midtown. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the slim 711-foot-tall reinforced concrete edifice is wrapped in an elegant undulating glass curtain wall and yields 94 bespoke residences with prices starting at $1.875 million. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing handles the sales and marketing of homes, which range from one-bedroom condos to sprawling full-story developments. 100 East 53rd Street is located at the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 53rd Street, directly across Lexington Avenue from the Citigroup Center and directly behind the Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Selene’s sponsor is a subsidiary of Vanke US, and RFR is no longer involved with the sponsor entity or building ownership.
“BHSDM is proud to present Selene at 100 East 53rd Street,” said Robin Schneiderman, Managing Director of Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing. “Selene is a contemporary monument to the visionary architecture of Pritzker Prize winner Norman Foster. The building offers an unprecedented, carefully considered opportunity for today’s modern luxury buyer. Bespoke design, bespoke amenities and iconic vistas – all within a block of Park Avenue and available now for immediate occupancy.
Units have ceilings up to 11 feet high, oversized wide plank white oak floors, architectural concrete walls, high grade diamond polished concrete finished floors, ribbed concrete ceilings fitted with custom lights , floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive skyline views.
Interior and exterior photographs of Williams New York show the building’s main entrance, lobby, indoor pool, and view to the west during the day and night.
Residential amenities are housed in the podium on the third and fourth floors and include a 60-foot-long sun-drenched swimming pool, cardio room, weight room, pilates/ballet room, yoga room, sauna, steam room, spa treatment rooms, changing rooms and his and hers showers. There’s also the Atlas Club & Library furnished by AD100 interior designer William T. Georgis, who also furnished the building’s lobby with custom furniture and a dramatic fireplace. Another coveted aspect is elevator access to Le Jardinier, a Michelin-starred restaurant designed by award-winning architect and interior designer Joseph Dirand.
