New Renderings Released for David Adjaye-Designed Skyscraper in New York
Initial renderings have been released for Downtown Manhattan’s 61-storey residential tower, designed by Ghanian-British architect David Adjaye. The tower, which was commissioned by Lightstone Group, will be Adjaye’s first skyscraper in New York City. It will be exactly located at 130 William Street in the Financial District, and it will be 750-feet-high.
The renderings which were first released on the Lightstone Group dedicated website, reveal a golden façade with a regular grid of arched openings. They, also, show the luxurious interiors of the condominiums and a cavernous spa. The development will comprise 244 luxurious condominiums, ranging between $630,000 Studios and $4.7 million 4-bedroom residences, in addition to other leisure facilities like sports court, a swimming pool, lounges, and gardens.
While this project will be Adjaye’s first skyscraper in New York City, it will not be his first project at all in the US or the city. His first design commission in New York was the Sugar Hill affordable housing in Harlem. However, his most iconic development in the US might be the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC which has opened earlier this year.
