Completed Foster + Partners-Designed Midtown Tower Relaunches as Selene

The Midtown Manhattan luxury tower designed by the Pritzker Prize winning Foster + Partners, is relaunching as Selene, a fully realized contemporary landmark with sales and marketing now led by Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing recommencing immediately. Formerly known by its address 100 East 53rd Street and now being relaunched independently by Vanke US, the project has hit a number of recent milestones as it returns to the market. With construction now complete, immediate occupancy available, and a suite of newly furnished model residences set to be unveiled soon, Selene offers perfect pied-à- terre residences with sweeping views of New York City.

“We’re proud to introduce Selene and relaunch sales at this visionary address.” said Robin Schneiderman, Managing Director of Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing, the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the building. “Offering world class design, tailored amenities and iconic vistas – all within a block of Park Avenue and available now for immediate occupancy, Selene is an amenity-rich luxury tower with all of the conveniences of one of Manhattan’s most sought-after, iconic neighborhoods for luxury living.”

Soaring 63 stories and comprising a collection of 94 bespoke residences, Selene offers a quality of finishes never before seen in new development. The building’s luminous tower homes, named the Sky Collection, range from expansive, one-bedroom residences to a duplex full-floor penthouse and boast ceilings up to 11 feet in height, elegantly undulating glass walls, and iconic day-to-night vistas that bathe each residence in natural light. With no more than two residences per floor, each tower residence features a graciously proportioned open kitchen with wire brushed oak custom cabinetry and a best-in-class Gaggenau appliance suite. Baths are accessorized with unique details such as Foster + Partners-designed bronze and oak vanities, radiant heated flooring, and freestanding soaking tubs. Select tower homes also offer a private elevator entrance.

Selene’s gallery-style residences, named the Modern Loft Collection, feature architectural concrete walls, diamond-polished high-grade concrete flooring, and ribbed concrete ceilings. In addition to these thoughtfully considered concrete elements, the lofts boast Foster + Partners- designed custom millwork, floor-to-ceiling windows, and double entry doors in select residences.

Selene features its very own urban sanctuary, complete with four floors of luxurious wellness and social amenities to expand the boundaries of the residences. Encompassing the fourth floor, the wellness-focused amenity spaces include a 60-foot sunlit, arbor lined swimming pool, a cardio fitness room, weight room, pilates/ballet room, yoga room, sauna, steam room, spa treatment rooms and his-and-her private changing rooms and showers. On the third floor, Selene boasts amenities curated for residents’ social life including the stunning Atlas Club & Library furnished by AD100 interior designer William T. Georgis. Georgis also furnished the building’s lobby, which features custom furniture by his design alongside a dramatic fireplace and an art installation by celebrated American artist Rachel Feinstein. Residents of Selene also enjoy direct elevator access to the Michelin-starred Le Jardinier, the first New York City restaurant designed by the award-winning architect and interior designer Joseph Dirand.

Located off Park Avenue in the heart of Midtown East – known as the Midtown Cultural District – Selene is at the epicenter of New York’s entertainment, business and cultural community. The iconic neighborhood is now sought as a destination for luxury living, with its wealth of lifestyle offerings, including acclaimed new restaurants, luxury shopping on the world famous Fifth Avenue corridor, Central Park, landmark performance venues, and architectural icons such as the Lever House, Seagram Building, and Rockefeller Center.

Pricing for remaining inventory at Selene starts from $1.715mm. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is the exclusive sales and marketing agent for Selene. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, please contact the sales team at 212-486-3979 or, or visit
