The real estate developer Lightstone announced that a new luxury high-rise tower designed by visionary architect David Adjaye, has topped out. 130 William rises approximately 800 feet tall—66 stories—to make a bold architectural statement and unique addition to Manhattan’s iconic skyline. In collaboration with local architect Hill West, Adjaye was inspired to craft a building that pushes away from the typical commercial feel of glass and instead embraces New York’s history of classic stonework and beloved lofts that once populated Lower Manhattan.
Adjaye is responsible for the holistic vision of 130 William, including its iconic exterior architecture which features a custom hand-cast façade with rhythmic large-scale arched windows and bronze detailing, as well as all of the building’s luxurious interiors. The tower features 242 residences, ranging in size from studio residences to up to four bedrooms. The residences incorporate luxurious interior finishes. Each is crafted with airy interiors framed by oversized bronze 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. 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 22,000 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 cool-down 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 a private rooftop observation deck located at the top of the building, nearly 800 feet in the air.
