130 william, the david adjaye-designed skyscraper, nears completion in new york

after topping out in may 2019, ‘130 william’, the much-anticipated residential skyscraper designed by david adjaye, is now nearing completion in new york. serving as a distinct addition to the manhattan skyline, the luxury tower stands at its total height of approximately 800 feet (244 meters), or 66 stories. the building’s current status has been documented in new images taken by photographer paul clemence, who previously captured the adjaye-designed national museum of african american history and culture in washington, DC.

once complete, 130 william, which is being developed by real estate firm lightstone, will include 242 residences with the top ten floors home to a penthouse and loggia residences. adjaye, working in collaboration with local architect hill west, was inspired to craft a building that pushes away from the typical commercial feel of glass and instead embraced new york’s history of classic stonework and lofts that once populated lower manhattan. as a result, the building is clad with a custom hand-cast façade with large-scale arched windows and bronze detailing.

‘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,’ adjaye explains. ‘130 william evokes the past, but it also has a forward-looking design which explores the new possibilities of urban, vertical living.’

on site lifestyle and wellness 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. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.
