130 William is a residential high-rise tower located in the Financial District of Manhattan. The building is being developed by Lightstone and was designed by Ghanaian-British architect Sir David Adjaye.[2]


Lightstone purchased the former 12-story office building at 130 William Street in May 2014 for $60 million after the previous owner defaulted on a mortgage from East West Bank.[3] Eight months later, the company unveiled Hill West Architects' plans for a 50-story tall mixed-use building that would reach a height of 581 feet (177 m) and contain a hotel and 188 apartments.[4] However, new plans filed in early 2017 removed the hotel portion and increased the building's size to its current height.[5]

In March 2017, the project secured $305 million in financing and began construction.[6] Facade installation began in October 2018.[7] The building topped-out in May 2019.[8] 130 William has also been recognized as the fastest selling luxury condominium development in New York City in 2018 and 2019.[9]

Architecture and design[edit]

130 William's custom hand-cast façade features large-scale arched windows and bronzed detailing. It will rise approximately 800 feet (240 m) tall at 66 stories and will consist of 242 residences and over 22,000 square feet (2,000 m2) of amenities.[8] The building will also incorporate a new public plaza park, also designed by Adjaye, as well as over 20,000 square feet (1,900 m2) of retail, both located at the building's base.[10][11]

130 William is adjacent to the Fulton Center transit hub of the New York City Subway. The building is also immediately adjacent to Tribeca, South Street Seaport, the Brooklyn Bridge, as well as some of New York City's top restaurants and elite shopping and cultural venues.[12]
