RFR Holding, has unveiled the team behind One Hundred East Fifty Third Street, a new luxury residential tower designed by the world-renowned Foster + Partners. Together with co-owner Vanke, RFR has selected Urban Compass as the exclusive marketing and sales firm.

This highly anticipated 61-storey building, comprised of 94 units, is the latest property from RFR to join the iconic “Architects Row” in Manhattan with its prime location at East 53rd Street just steps from two of New York’s most prestigious modernist buildings, Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building and Gordon Bunshaft and Natalie de Blois’s Lever House.

The distinctive residencesat One Hundred East Fifty Third Street will offer buyers the rare opportunity to live in a one-of-a-kind piece of architectural history. The building’s stunning façade, slender in form, tall in stature, and minimalist in geometric design, is created to complement its distinguished neighbors; the overall effect of the tower is bright and brilliant in contrast to the dark bronze of the Seagram Building.

This inimitable development resides in the cultural core of Midtown Manhattan, steps away from the MoMA, Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Center and timeless city landmarks. The central and sought-after location of One Hundred East Fifty Third Street will grant residents unmatched access to the city’s cultural, entertainment, shopping and dining offerings.  One Hundred East Fifty Third Street can be previewed at Sales for One Hundred East Fifty Third Street will commence in late Spring 2015 with an expected completion date of 2017. The sales gallery will be located within the Seagram Building.
