ghanaian british architect sir david adjaye’s new 800 foot-tall (240 meter) luxury condominium, titled ‘130 william,’ has released new renderings that provide a peek into the next phase of new york’s constant skyline evolution. in conjunction with development group lightstone, this will be adjaye’s first residential skyscraper in the city. for an in-depth introduction to 130 william, see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.

with 130 william, adjaye moves away from ‘the typical commercial feel of glass’ to embrace the city’s ‘historic masonry architecture.’ the building’s hand-cast façade maintains manhattan’s historic urban fabric through a contemporary interpretation of stonework.

the financial district’s latest skyscraper will house over 244 residences. studios start at $650,000, with four bedroom units starting at $5,420,000. all residences will be outfitted with luxurious interior finishes and have been designed to incorporate an airy feel with trademark arched windows providing sweeping views across the city.

130 william will also be equipped with over 20,000 square feet of amenities, including a rooftop observatory, private rooftop cabanas available for purchase, an IMAX movie theater and more. see new images of these amenities below, and in the gallery at the bottom of the page.

the project will add to lightstone’s already impressive $3 billion portfolio, which currently includes over 6 million square feet of office, retail, and industrial commercial properties, over 15,000 residential units, and 4,000 hotel keys.
