130 William is our first high-rise residential tower in the United States.Rising 244 metres, the 66-storey luxury condominium building is an elegant insertion into the dense Manhattan cityscape, carving a distinctive silhouette within NYC’ iconic skyline. Conceived as a vertical micro-city, 130 William includes 244 residences, two retail floors, a health club, a gym, a movie theatre, outdoor terraces, a rooftop observatory deck and a new public plaza park.
Adjaye Associates’ design celebrates the building’s lower Manhattan context with a hand-cast concrete façade evocative of the masonry craftsmanship of the neighbourhood’s historic high-rises. The rough textures of the bespoke tinted concrete are offset by the smooth bronze detailing found throughout the building. Rhythmic, large-scale arched windows, inspired by the mercantile structures that once populated the area, establish the building’s bold silhouette and ensures natural light reaches deep into the interiors. The highest level residences feature spacious double-height loggias that blur indoor and outdoor life while providing sweeping views, river to river, across the city.
130 William also features a generous new public plaza park, a piece of urban placemaking that offers a transition between the bustle of NYC life and the respite of the residences.
