The final exterior touches are underway on 130 William Street, an 800-foot-tall residential skyscraper in the Financial District and number 18 on YIMBY’s year-end countdown. Designed by David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates and developed by Lightstone, the 66-story tower will yield 242 units marketed by Corcoran Sunshine, ranging in price from $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse. Hill West Architects served as architect of record for the project, which is bound by William, Fulton, and Gold Streets.
Since our last update in May, the remaining windows on the upper levels have finished installation and the mechanical extension has been fully enclosed in its pleated panels.
Two primary exterior sections are wrapping up: the northern entrance along Fulton Street and the main landscaped courtyard along William Street, with the abutting lot line walls being formed with a dense motif of arched openings that emulate Adjaye’s signature design on the main tower above. This portion of the property had served as the staging area for machinery and equipment during the building’s construction. Sidewalk scaffolding hangs above the pathway leading up to the front doors and lobby of 130 William Street.
130 William Street features five exclusive apartments designed in collaboration with Aston Martin on the 59th and 60th floors. Two are penthouses with one priced at $11.5 million and the second at $10.5 million. The remaining three are 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. Also part of the furnishings are bedside tables by Formitalia, walk-in closets, wall-mounted lighting, and lounge chairs by Hans Wegner in the master bedrooms. Residents of these coveted residences have the option to ask for a race simulator created by Aston Martin and British tech company Curv Racing Simulators, and are also provided with an Aston Martin DBX, a crossover SUV designed in collaboration with David Adjaye.
YIMBY was told that construction on 130 William Street should be fully complete in early 2022.
