Located at 53 W 53rd Street, the MoMA Tower will stand 76 stories at 320 m (1,050ft) tall and house 139 luxury apartments. The 710 HC-L will be integral in the construction of the tower, helping place 7,357 tons of reinforcing steel and 48,850 cubic yards (37.348m³) of concrete. When completed, MoMA Tower will bring 676,000 gross square feet (628,025m²) of mixed-use space to downtown Manhattan.
World-renowned architect Jean Novel's design will be a masterpiece that integrates with the Museum of Modern Art located next door. This integration extends into the Tower where three floors are to be designated as MoMA art gallery spaces. General contractor Sorbara is well known in New York for concrete superstructures; 1 World Trade Center Freedom Tower, AOL-Time Warner, 7 World Trade Center and Hearst Headquarters among other projects.
Together the MoMA Tower and Liebherr 710 HC-L will rise above New York's skyline in a graceful embrace of design, form and structure.
“We are impressed with the Liebherr 710 HC-L. We are very confident that the combination of Morrow Equipment and Liebherr along with the 710 HC-L will help us complete this prestigious project on time” - William Kell, Sorbara Chief Estimator.
