The unique curtain wall of 130 William Street has climbed past the halfway mark of the topped-out 800-foot-tall skyscraper. Located in the Financial District, the reinforced concrete tower is David Adjaye’s first high-rise in New York City. Hill West Architects is the architect of record, while Lightstone Group is the developer of the 66-story residential project. Unit prices for the 242 residences range from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing of the homes.
Architecture firm Gensler will again appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in defense of proposals to construct a rooftop addition at One Broadway in Battery Park, Manhattan. Following lukewarm feedback from the commission, new renderings reveal an overall reduction of mass including structural height, exterior cladding, and shape.
The first several floors have been constructed for the new Hotel Indigo at 120 Water Street in the Financial District. The ground-up project is designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and developed by Atlas Development. Fortuna Realty Group will serve as hotel management. The slim building will rise 28 stories between Wall Street and the East River, and will yield 52,000 square feet with 128 rooms, a cellar-level fitness center, a ground-floor restaurant, and a 25th-floor venue space. The project broke ground in 2017 and progress has been slow until recently.
Installation of the reflective glass curtain wall of One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, is finally progressing in the Financial District.

Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer and Douglas Elliman is handling sales of the units.
Construction is moving along on the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center.

The 9/11 Memorial is to the south of the property, while the plot of Two World Trade Center, aka 200 Greenwich Street, is found to the east across Greenwich Street.
