Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 7.12.07 PMGot $70 million to drop on some New York real estate? Perhaps you’d like to snap up one of the crash pads in Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel‘s tower, officially known as 53W53, whose lower floors will house galleries of the Museum of Modern Art.

Renderings, which have been unveiled by the New York Post, show the apartments fitted out with amenities like grand pianos and mobiles by artist Alexander Calder, which is fitting for the building which houses MoMA’s galleries. Nouvel is known for cultural commissions including the controversial Louvre Abu Dhabi and the National Art Museum of China, in Beijing.

The 55th-floor, three-bedroom apartments will carry an asking price of $21.7 million. They measure just under 4,000 square feet, and include three bathrooms and a powder room (which is apparently a thing with the one percent). The other, more modest three-bedroom on the same floor measures just over 3,300 square feet, but it too features three baths and is tagged at $14.42 million.

Seventeen floors higher, there’s a duplex that measures over 4,300 square feet that will run you $39.2 million.

The super-luxury residential building is under construction, and will rise to a height of 1,050 feet, just 200 feet shorter than the nearby Empire State Building.

New Yorkers can check out Nouvel’s work in Chelsea, where his tower at 100 11th Avenue houses Michael Rosenfeld Gallery.
