The long-delayed, Jean Nouvel-designed MoMA Tower in Midtown is finally hitting the market, with nine of the 1,050-foot-tall condo building’s 139 apartments for sale and asking between $3.17 million and $50.9 million.

Construction at the supertall residential tower, located at 53 West 53rd Street, started earlier this year, and units appeared on the market Friday afternoon alongside never-before-seen-rendering and floor plans.

Houston-based Hines is co-developing the project with Goldman Sachs and Singapore-based Pontiac Land Group. Thierry Despont, who is also working on the luxury condos at the Woolworth Building, is handling the building’s interiors, according to Curbed.

The 82-story tower’s duplex penthouse will reportedly ask more than $70 million. The development, located near the corner of Sixth Avenue between West 53rd and West 54th streets on land once owned by the adjacent Museum of Modern Art, was initially conceived in 2006 before being shelved amid the financial crisis.

Floor plans revealed last year placed the building’s total residential space at more than 442,000 square feet, as The Real Deal reported. [Curbed] — Rey Mashayekhi
