Installation of 130 William Street‘s charcoal-colored curtain wall is approaching completion in the Financial District. Designed by David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates and developed by Lightstone with Hill West Architects as the architect of record, the 66-story residential skyscraper stands 800 feet tall and will yield 242 units marketed by Corcoran Sunshine. Prices for residences are expected to range from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse.
Recent close-up shots show the finished look of the concrete-cast arches on the slim northern elevation, as well as the more compact grid of arches on the eastern elevation facing the East River.
The top ten floors on the northern and southern profile have private individual loggias, which are outlined by the open-air, upside-down arches that are currently protected with orange netting.
The last major section of the exterior awaiting completion is the upper extended mechanical section above the roof parapet. A gold cladding will eventually enclose the metal framework surrounding the wooden water towers and ventilation units. Tall trees and upward-pointing floodlights are illustrated to complete the parapet of the skyscraper.
The only other portions of the project remaining to be finished are the strip on the southern elevation where the hoist still stands attached and the landscaped ground-floor courtyard and main entrance along William Street.
130 William Street is expected to have closings begin before the end of the year.
