MoMA Tower will be another addition to the Manhattan skyline upon its completion. Designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, the 1,050-foot supertall tower tapers to its 82nd floor. 170 luxury residential condominiums fill most of the tower, occupying 442,357 square feet, while the Musuem of Modern Art will occupy floors two, four and five for gallery space, at a total of 36,000 square feet. The facade is made up on metal and glass, and has a diagonal grid. The tower began construction in late 2014, and is expected to be completed by 2017.
