Located on the 12th floor of 53 West 53, the striking 1,050-foot-high residential condominium tower perched above the Museum of Modern Art and designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel with interior architecture by Thierry Despont, the Wellness Center is on par with the finest spas and fitness centers in the world, set within a private environment. The full-floor club was designed by Nouvel and features 15,000 square feet of lavish wellness amenities curated and managed by the premier fitness lifestyle brand, The Wright Fit.



The expansive Wellness Center includes a full gym, separate high- and low-energy fitness studios, a regulation squash court, a golf simulator that allows you to play at some of the best golf courses in the world, men’s and women’s saunas and steam rooms and a spa treatment room. Residents also enjoy a naturally lit 65-foot lap pool, cold plunge pool and hot tub situated between elaborate poolside vertical gardens designed by noted French botanist Patrick Blanc that use over 3,500 plants giving each garden a rich multi-dimensional texture.



The Wellness Center features a mix of the finest finishes and materials sourced from around the world. The men’s locker room uses rich matrix stone and the women’s locker room features white crystal throughout. Large swaths of natural materials and flooring throughout The Wellness Center enhance the sense of volume and compliment the extraordinarily high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, providing residents with an abundance of natural light.



The Wright Fit’s on-site staff provide a wide selection of personalized classes, programs and services custom-designed for residents at 53 West 53. Their holistic approach to wellness and world-class service elevates 53 West 53’s jaw-dropping amenity package and transcends even the most discerning expectations.



53 West 53 is the creation of Singapore-based luxury real estate owner, developer and operator Pontiac Land, known for their iconic properties and mixed-use developments that champion design and world-class hospitality, and Hines, a global leader in international real estate investment and development with active projects in over 240 cities.
