Lightstone, one of the largest and most diversified privately held real estate companies in the United States, has announced that 130 William, a new luxury high-rise tower designed by visionary architect Sir David Adjaye, has topped out. 130 William rises approximately 800’ tall, 66 stories, to make a bold architectural statement and unique addition to Manhattan’s iconic skyline. Adjaye designed 130 William’s 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.
“In defining the design for 130 William I 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. 130 William evokes the past, but it also has a forward-looking design which explores the new possibilities of urban, vertical living,” said Sir David Adjaye. In collaboration with celebrated 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.
“Sir David Adjaye is truly a visionary architect. He has a completely unique aesthetic that is refined yet bold and rooted in historical precedent. 130 William truly represents the approach of his mastery. Our goal with 130 William was to create refined residences and with the building topping out we are excited to see it progress,” said Mitchell C. Hochberg, President of Lightstone.
“Since the sales launch less than a year ago, 130 William has been recognized as the best-selling condo in New York City. The building is appealing to a diverse range of purchasers who are impressed with its sophisticated architecture and interior design paired with an impressive suite of amenities,” said Scott Avram, Senior Vice President of Development Lightstone.
130 William features 242 residences, ranging in size from studio residences to up to four bedrooms. The units incorporate luxurious interior finishes made of materials sourced from around the world. 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 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.
Amenities at 130 William 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, and outdoor terraces. The tower will also feature a private rooftop observatory deck located at the top of the building, nearly 800' high. 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.
Prices for the residences range from approximately $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom full floor penthouse. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is exclusively handling sales and marketing for the building.
