Designed by the eminent Argentinian-born postmodern architect César Pelli, Museum Tower rises 52 stories immediately above the Museum of Modern Art. With a distinctive glass facade of warm-gray toned panels, the resoundingly modern Museum Tower sets a high standard as the first residential condominium to successfully meld the worlds of culture and commerce.
