Dec 16, 2017
Architects: Adjaye Associates and Lightstone
Location: 130 William Street, Downtown Manhattan, New York City, USA
130 William features 244 residences and rises 66 stories to make a bold addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline
Lightstone, one of the largest and most diversified privately held real estate companies in the United States, and Adjaye Associates, the world-renowned architecture firm founded by Sir David Adjaye, announce 130 William, a luxury condominium building located in downtown Manhattan. 130 William is Adjaye Associates’ first condominium tower in New York City. It will feature 244 residences and rise 66 stories to make a bold architectural statement and unique addition to Manhattan’s iconic skyline.
Recently knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and named one of TIME’s 100 most influential people of 2017, Adjaye is recognized as one of the leading architects of his generation. His firm has designed culturally significant and genre-redefining developments around the world, including the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington DC, which opened last year, and the recently announced National Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in London, UK.
“The design for 130 William acknowledges the tower’s location on one of the city’s earliest streets. Understanding that rich history, I was inspired to craft a building that turns away from the commercial feel of glass and that instead celebrates New York’s heritage of masonry architecture with a distinctive presence in Manhattan’s skyline,” said Adjaye.
Adjaye Associates is designing the architecture and interiors for 130 William. The building’s design celebrates its lower Manhattan context, home to some of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers, by evoking the neighborhood’s history and timeless craftsmanship. Its façade is an elegant balance of textured handcast concrete with smooth, delicate bronze detailing. One of the building’s signature features is a unique silhouette of rhythmic, large-scale arched windows, which draw inspiration from the beloved lofts that once populated the area. The building also features a generous new public plaza park, providing a transition between the bustle of urban life and the respite of the residences.
“Sir David Adjaye is one of today’s most preeminent architects and we are thrilled to be collaborating with him to bring an iconic building to downtown Manhattan. The design for 130 William simultaneously embraces the architectural legacy of Manhattan’s downtown neighborhood, while offering luxury condominium residences that discerning buyers will find is unlike anything on the market,” said Lightstone President Mitchell Hochberg.
Expansive arched windows ensure that natural light floods the interiors, and residences feature luxurious materials sourced from around the world. Spacious Penthouse loggias with double height ceilings blur indoor and outdoor life while providing sweeping views, river to river, across the city. The building will offer studios to five-bedroom homes, along with a curated collection of lifestyle and wellness amenities. 130 William will include a health club with full spa, swimming pool, cold and hot plunge pools, sauna and massage rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center with a yoga studio and basketball court. The building will also feature a private IMAX movie theater, golf simulator, resident lounge, club and game room, a chef’s catering kitchen with a private dining area, children’s play rooms, pet spa, outdoor terraces, and a private rooftop observatory deck located at the top of the building, nearly 800 feet in the air.
Hill West is the Architect for 130 William and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is exclusively handling sales and marketing. Sales are expected to start Spring 2018. Construction is already underway, with initial closings anticipated to commence in Spring 2020.
130 William is located in downtown Manhattan’s Financial District, which has become a major destination for the city’s top restaurants, as well as shopping and cultural venues, including the Santiago Calatravadesigned Oculus, One World Trade Center, Brookfield Place, Nobu, Jean-Georges and Eataly. The building is within walking distance of the South Street Seaport, Tribeca, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the new Fulton Street Transit Hub, which provides access to 11 subway lines.
