Called 130 William, the skyscraper has an impressive facade covered in hand-polished concrete panels. Their texture and color are similar to volcanic stone.
The panels of the 66-story skyscraper have arched windows reminiscent of the industrial architecture common on the New York waterfront in the 130th and XNUMXth centuries. XNUMX William stands out against the many surrounding skyscrapers, mostly glass office buildings.
"The story of New York was a source of inspiration, and the new scale is the story of New York in the 21st century," Ajaye said.
Near the skyscraper there is a "pocket" park with places to relax. This area was created as a gathering place for residents and the public.
The building contains 242 luxury residences. On the upper floors, there are penthouses with access to their own loggias.
The Adjaye Associates studio also designed the interior of the building. It includes marble and dark wood with metallic accents in the public areas of the building.
The apartments have light interior colors to contrast with the dark tones of the facade and public spaces.
