The last exterior touches are going up on 130 William Street, an 800-foot-tall residential skyscraper in the Financial District. Designed by David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates and developed by Lightstone with Hill West Architects as the architect of record, the 66-story edifice will yield 242 units marketed by Corcoran Sunshine. Prices are expected to range from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse. The building’s main entrance is located on William Street, along with street frontage lining Fulton Street to the north.
Since our last update in December, the exterior hoist has been disassembled from the slender southern elevation and the gap has been filled in with the building’s signature charcoal-colored arches. Most of the remaining exterior work involves the installation of the windows on the upper floors.
Work has also begun on the mechanical extension above the flat roof parapet, which is being wrapped in pleated metal panels. Renderings show this part of the tower topped with a private outdoor terrace featuring large trees and lights that illuminate the metal paneling assembly.
Back at ground level, the courtyard is still largely being used as a delivery area for construction vehicles, but a sliver of space has been completed and sits underneath temporary white scaffolding. This corridor gives prospective buyers and real estate brokers a close-up view of the wall of arches.
Matching its unique appearance on the Financial District skyline, the building will also feature innovative custom interiors. The most prominent example is five 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. Layouts for the homes include an open-concept kitchen finished with blackened oak Italian cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances, Nero Marquina marble countertops, and custom-cashmere headboard cushions. They also feature bedside tables by Formitalia, walk-in closets, wall-mounted lighting, and lounge chairs by Hans Wegner in the master bedrooms. Residents can ask for an optional race simulator space created by Aston Martin and British tech company Curv Racing Simulators. These exclusive units will also come with an Aston Martin DBX, a crossover SUV designed in collaboration with David Adjaye.
130 William Street should be done with construction sometime before the end of this year.
