The dark, textured exterior panels are continuing to be installed piece by piece on all sides of the building. The best angles to view the arched windows are from the corner of Fulton Street and Gold Street or looking up at the western elevation on William Street. The upper ten floors on the northern and southern facades will have upside-down arched windows that surround outdoor loggias for a select number of units.

The featured image also shows what is most likely mechanical units encased in a large rectangular-shaped structure above the roofline. The exterior of this looks to be clad in gold-colored metal panels and illuminated by upward-pointing floodlights. Landscaping is depicted to cover the eastern half of the building’s outdoor loggia spaces.

Topping out of 130 William Street looks likely to happen sometime in May, while full completion is expected sometime next year.

  1. A for effort. Not sure about those “upside down” windows surrounding the top floor loggias.

  2. Sorry but this is hideous.

  3. Please pardon me for stinking up the place: Beautiful design bat cave and train tunnel. (You’re welcome David).
