53 West 53 is an 82-story supertall residential tower located next to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The building includes 145 condominiums and 65,000 SF of gallery space for the MoMA. Langan’s geotechnical engineers completed a subsurface investigation and developed geotechnical recommendations for seismic design, mat and caisson foundation support, and lateral earth pressures for below-grade walls. Our site/civil engineers provided designs for sidewalk restoration, utilities, and tree relocation.
