130 William Skyscraper
Lightstone, one of the largest and most diversified privately held real estate companies in the United States, is developing 130 William, a new luxury high-rise tower located in lower Manhattan.
130 William is designed by visionary architect Sir David Adjaye. It is his first skyscraper, as well as his first high-rise tower in New York City. He is responsible for the holistic vision of 130 William, including its iconic exterior architecture, as well as all of the building’s luxurious interiors.
Adjaye Associates 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; the National Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in London, UK; and the National Cathedral in Accra, Ghana.
130 William will rise approx. 800 feet tall, 66 stories, to make a bold architectural statement and unique addition to Manhattan’s iconic skyline.
It will consist of 244 residences, ranging in size from studio residences to up to four bedrooms, and an expansive collection of over 20,000 square feet of amenities.
The building will also incorporate a new public plaza park, also designed by Adjaye, as well as over 20,000 square feet of retail both located at the building’s base.
Adjaye Associates collaborated with celebrated local architect Hill West on the project.
Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is exclusively handling sales and marketing.
Adjaye was inspired to craft a building that pushes away from the typical commercial feel of glass and that instead embraces New York’s history of masonry architecture.
130 Williams custom hand-cast façade is a contemporary interpretation of the stonework that characterized classic Manhattan architecture. The textured façade gives way to smooth and delicately-crafted details, which all come together with refined bronze detailing.
Another signature feature is the unique silhouette of rhythmic large-scale arched windows that draw inspiration from the beloved lofts that once populated the area.
Residents who enter 130 William will pass through a beautiful new public plaza park, providing a transition between the bustle of urban life and the respite of the residences.
Residences and Features
130 William will feature 244 residences, ranging in size from studio residences to up to four bedrooms.
The residences incorporate luxurious interior finishes made of materials sourced from around the world. There is a true sense of craft in the details and materiality.
Each residence is crafted with airy interiors framed by oversized arched windows. Wide-plank white oak flooring underfoot enhances warmth throughout.
Complementing the refined nature of the building, Adjaye custom designed all the fixtures and hardware throughout the residences in a beautiful burnished bronze finish. This includes all faucets, showerheads, accessories, and door handles.
Thoughtfully detailed, the open-plan kitchens are characterized with custom Pedini Italian millwork cabinetry, State-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances, and hand-selected Italian Pietra Cardosa stone countertops sourced directly from the Apuan Alps in Tuscany, Italy. All kitchens are further enhanced with Spanish Nero Marquina marble cantilevers which provide for bar seating.
The bathroom marble is hand selected from the Apuan Alps in Tuscany, Italy.
Elegant Salvatori textured Bianco Carrara Italian marble highlights the master bathrooms, which offer spacious walk-in showers, soaking tubs, custom Pedini Italian vanities and custom Adjaye designed illuminated medicine cabinets.
Secondary bathrooms feature floor-to-ceiling Salvatori honed Grigio Versilia marble and the Powder Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling Salvatori bamboo textured Grigio Versilia marble.
The top ten residential floors are home to the Penthouse and Loggia Residences. The interiors are comprised of generously-scaled rooms and loft-like ceilings ranging from 11′ to 14′ that flow seamlessly into expansive outdoor spaces with unprecedented views.
The Loggia terraces wrap these residences from end to end, providing significant outdoor space starting at over 600′ in the air.
These specialty residences are also enhanced with unique finishes, like marble carved sink countertops and large marble carved soaking tubs.
130 William offers an expansive collection of lifestyle and wellness amenities that are spread over more than 20,000 square feet. The comprehensive suite of amenities include:
A health club with full spa, infinity-edge swimming pool, cold and hot plunge pools, dry sauna and massage rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center with terrace, yoga studio and basketball court.
Residents will also enjoy a private IMAX movie theater, golf simulator, resident lounge, club and game room, chef’s catering kitchen with a private dining area, children’s activity center, pet spa, outdoor terraces, and private rooftop observatory deck located at the top of the building – nearly 800 feet in the air.
Additional conveniences at 130 William include a full-time doorman and a concierge service as well as bicycle storage, private resident storage and private rooftop cabanas available for purchase.
New York City was born in lower Manhattan and now with the growth of Brooklyn and the rebirth of the Financial District, the center of New York City has shifted back downtown.
130 William is within steps from the new Fulton Street Transit Hub, which provides access to 11 subway lines. The building is also immediately adjacent to Tribeca, the South Street Seaport, the Brooklyn Bridge, as well as to some of the city’s top restaurants and elite shopping and cultural venues including the Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus, One World Trade Center, Brookfield Place, Nobu, Jean-Georges, Eataly etc. Lower Manhattan continues to grow exponentially with new restaurants, cultural venues, and shops opening regularly.

“In defining the design for 130 William I not only sought to celebrate New York City’s heritage of masonry architecture, referencing the historical architecture once pervasive upon one of the city’s earliest streets. However, and more importantly, 130 William has been crafted to focus on the new possibilities of urban, vertical living.” Sir David Adjaye, Principal Adjaye Associates
“Sir David Adjaye is truly a visionary architect. He has a completely unique design aesthetic that is refined yet provocative, and rooted in history. 130 William is his first residential skyscraper, and it truly represents the approach of this master architect. Our goal with 130 William was to create refined residences, which we know will be attractive to discerning buyers, but at the same time is a little provocative and thought provoking.” Mitchell C. Hochberg, President Lightstone
“Given that 130 William will redefine the lower Manhattan skyline, we felt a responsibility to deliver something different that hasn’t existed before. Our collaboration with David is a true meeting of the minds, and we have confidence that the building’s elite design paired with an impressive suite of amenities will appeal to a diverse range of potential purchasers.” Scott Avram, Senior Vice President of Development Lightstone
