An excellent rendering can be seen.

^Those renderings look like two different buildings! Will this building have arched openings on the N and S sides, and then upside down arches on the E and W sides? The scaled columns (not sure how else to put it) at each level also look like a new revision.

This design is turning out to be quite a beauty.

Another 800 footer rising. Another one!!!

====================
====================


David Adjaye’s Financial District condo is beginning to rise:
The building will eventually stand 800 feet tall and bring 244 apartments to the neighborhood


Quote:
David Adjaye’s first NYC skyscraper is finally getting off the ground, 6sqft reports. The publication spotted a construction crane at the site, at 130 William Street, in the Financial District, and reports that the building has now reached street level.

Eventually, this Lightstone-developed building will have 66 stories and stand 800 feet tall. This project has been in the works since at least 2015; several buildings had to be demolished to make way for the new condo building, and excavation work on the site got underway last summer.

For months there was speculation about who would design this skyscraper. Adjaye’s name first came forward in May last year, but it wasn’t officially confirmed until later in the year.

In December last year, we finally got the first comprehensive look at the condo building, which showed off the building’s hand-cast concrete exterior. The building will have a total of 244 apartments, and sales are expected to launch this year, with the first set of residents moving in sometime in 2020.

I hate these afterthought mechanical boxes.

^Agree 100%

A pair of particularly bad ones are on top of the skewed American Copper Buildings, where they are naturally un-skewed and look ridiculous and go a long way towards ruining an otherwise stunning design.

Agreed. They also light up the one on the taller tower but not the shorter one, and it drives my inner perfectionist crazy. One of the few times JDS Development has disappointed us.

The sad thing is that these mechanical towers don’t have to be ugly. The two little temples at the top of the San Remo on Central Park West, for example, were designed to hide the building’s rooftop water towers. Even a building as ostensibly functionalist as 432 Park manages to hide its mechanicals by just extending the facade upwards another two stories. Unfortunately, a lot of architects and developers seem to regard rooftop structures as an afterthought. It’s such a wasted opportunity.

I'm wondering if there'll be a different number of window rows per floor.

On one pic I counted six on what I presume to be the south and East River profiles; but the night render (Hudson profile?) shows eight. Also, I would think the color change might be due to a possible floodlighting illumination scheme...kinda like RCA/Comcast.

The American Copper building is a great example (well, awful...). River North in Chicago is plagued by them also.

It's lazy architecture. You should know the mechanical systems your building requires and design the building with the space they will require in mind. Not just tack it on top in some cheap metal box.

800 feet a few blocks from the Brooklyn Bridge will be difficult to see.
It’s just not tall enough, I’m afraid.

Architect David Adjaye Talks 130 William Street As Work Pushes Above Ground, Financial District





Quote:
Concrete is finally starting to rise for the soon-to-be 800-foot tall residential tower at 130 William Street in the Financial District. The building has surpassed the significant brunt of foundational work, and is now beginning to progress above ground level. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.

Our last report on the project detailed a redesign, moving away from a limestone façade to where it is now. The black lava-like stone has a pumiced texture that is designed to cast deep shadows when in direct light. This unique relationship with the sun will give it the appearance of being darker, depending on the condition of the sunlight, without altering the raw material.

Each floor angles slightly, accentuating the idea of stacking up homes to create a visual paradox by emphasizing the delicate balance required for such a monumental addition to the skyline. To use the architect’s own words, the building will add, “another quality to the skyline, it’s own signature and own feel.”

Twelve to fifteen hundred handmade panels will eventually be installed on the building. The arches along the façade will be load-bearing, making this building a favorable contender for a world record of most structural arches in one building. When asked to comment directly about the arch style, architect David Adjaye said he had looked to the buildings in Brooklyn and Manhattan built during the 19th century while the city profited as the most significant port in North America.


Hill West Architects is the architect of record, and the Lightstone Group is responsible for the development. Corcoran Sunshine is handling sales and marketing.

Completion is expected by spring of 2020.
