Sir David Adjaye’s residential tower at 130 William Street surpassed the halfway mark earlier this month, as it continues to climb towards its 800-foot tall pinnacle. The 66-story building is designed by Adjaye Associates with Hill West Architects as the architect of record. Lightstone is the developer, and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales of the 244 condominiums.
130 William Street
Visible from the Brooklyn Bridge and starting to pop up over its surrounding context, 130 William Street, designed by Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates, is making an early impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline. The future 800-foot-tall and 66-story residential tower will have 244 units when completed. Hill West Architects is the architect of record while Lightstone Group is the developer, and Corcoran Sunshine is in charge of handling sales. 130 William Street is also referred to as the “Wall Street Tower,” and with an eventual 800-foot pinnacle, it is currently the 20th-tallest tower under construction in the Five Boroughs. At topping-out, it will stand eight feet above the Woolworth Building, and six feet shorter than Bloomberg Tower.
130 William Street is one of the most highly anticipated buildings currently rising in Lower Manhattan, and after sales launched earlier this summer, another milestone is at hand. The hand cast and oversized concrete arches that will make up the façade, which are purposefully evocative of the city’s historic fabric from the 19th and early 20th centuries, are now quickly rising along the exterior. Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
Concrete is finally starting to rise for the soon-to-be 800-foot tall residential tower at 130 William Street in the Financial District. The building has surpassed the significant brunt of foundational work, and is now beginning to progress above ground level. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
YIMBY has covered 130 William Street extensively, from back when preliminary permits were first filed in 2015, to the recent start of foundation work. Now, the building has seen another design shift, with new renderings by architect David Adjaye revealing a substantial transformation to the exterior as compared to the most recent images. The 61-story tower is being developed by Lightstone, and is just about ready to start rising above ground level.
