Exterior work is wrapping up on 130 William Street, an 800-foot-tall residential skyscraper in the Financial District and number 14 on our annual construction countdown. Designed by David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates and developed by Lightstone with Hill West Architects as the architect of record, the 66-story project recently began closings for its 242 units, which are being marketed by Corcoran Sunshine. Prices are expected to range from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse.
Recent photos show the charcoal-colored fenestration of arched windows substantially complete. The last major exterior section awaiting completion is the mechanical extension above the roof parapet where the façade terminates. Additional pieces of metal are framing the perimeter of this section and will eventually support a gold-colored assembly that will surround the water towers and other various mechanical equipment. Renderings also depict several trees planted atop the skyscraper as part of a private outdoor space. Meanwhile, the exterior hoist still stands attached to the slim southern elevation facing Wall Street but should be disassembled soon as construction draws to a close.
130 William will also feature a landscaped plaza at its main entrance along William Street, as seen in the rendering below.
Adjaye’s skyscraper notably includes five apartments that were designed in collaboration with Aston Martin and are perched on the 59th and 60th floors of the edifice. Among the five homes are two penthouses, one priced at $11.5 million and the second at $10.5 million, and three loggia residences, priced at $3.985 million, $5.985 million, and $10 million. The layouts include an open-concept kitchen finished with blackened oak Italian cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances, Nero Marquina marble countertops, and custom-cashmere headboard cushions. They also feature bedside tables by Formitalia, walk-in closets, wall-mounted lighting, and lounge chairs by Hans Wegner in the master bedrooms. Residences can also be fitted with an optional race simulator space created by Aston Martin and British tech company Curv Racing Simulators. Perhaps the most eye-catching add-on for these exclusive units is that each one comes with an Aston Martin DBX, a cross-over SUV designed in collaboration with David Adjaye.
130 William Street should be finished next year.
