In 2007, Hines announced the selection of Paris-based architect Jean Nouvel as the designer for Hines’ new mixed-use building in midtown Manhattan, adjacent to The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).  The building will rise 72 stories from the 17,000-square-foot site between 53rd and 54th streets between Fifth Avenue and the Avenue of the Americas.  A mix of uses is contemplated for the building including:  a 60,000-square foot expansion of MoMA’s galleries (levels two to five); a 100-room, seven-star hotel; and 120 luxury residential condominiums on the upper floors.  The proposed building’s unique silhouette tapers as it rises to a distinctive spire.  Its steel and glass façade reveals the structural diagrid.
