Smile NEW YORK | 130 William Street | 800 FT | 61 FLOORS

Lightstone Plans 50-Story Condo/Hotel for 130 William Street, Financial District

Current Site:



Quote:
There, at 130 William Street, the development firm is planning to erect a 50-story hotel and condo tower, according to plans filed with the Department of Buildings this afternoon, submitted by Goldstein, Hill & West Architects.

The skyscraper would reach 581 feet into the air, according to the filing, and include 188 apartments – likely condos – perched above an unspecified number of hotel rooms. The first and second floors would house retail, with the third through fifth floors set aside for residential and hotel amenity spaces. The hotel rooms would start on the sixth floor and reach through to the 17th, after which a mechanical floor would buffer the short-stay rooms from the permanent apartments.

Starting on the 19th floor, we find the apartments, with six units on each level up through the 49th floor (with the 34th floor set aside for residential amenities). There would then be one final apartment on the penthouse level, taking up the whole 50th floor. In total, the 188 apartments would be spread over 236,000 square feet of residential space, for an average unit size of over 1,250 square feet, strongly hinting at condos.

The hotel and retail space, meanwhile, would total 101,000 square feet.
The assemblage sits around, but not on, the corner of Fulton and William streets, stretching from 130 William Street south of Fulton (which Lightstone acquired earlier this year for $60 million) around to Gold Street and Fulton, but does not include 138 William Street, at the corner with Fulton.
Fisher Brothers owns 92 Fulton Street in the middle of the assemblage, having bought the site last June for $10 million. This could mean that they’re a partner in the development, or that they merely intend to sell the site to Lightstone.

Nice! ~600ft is a good height for the area.

this one looks modern "jenga-tower-ish" . .
even a bit "machine for living" . .
of the two renderings, I like the darker one . .
750 & up, is a good height for financial district . .
581 ft.tall (quoted above in article), is a bit short . .
depending on the topography around it, of course . .

adding too many more mid-sized towers into the FD, . .
merely crams out views of its more impressive, important spires
. . and robs them of visual soar . .
Though I love tall-tower-clusters, . .
filling-in the lower half, of the thicket's in-between cracks,
eliminates the contrast, harshens the cozy medieval vibe . .
and increasingly kills rare tower-defining aura-space . .
More square-footage mediocrity, troweled into the tight downtown skyline . .
might be better situated elsewhere . .
(actually the 250-550 ft. stuff is more the clutter I'm referring to) . .

anyway . . looks like there's some design here . .
not exactly imposing . . Then again, besides Gehry, 99 Church,
tower one, the Calatrava cathedral, the deco towers, . .
not much new stuff downtown is all that visually remarkable . .
but it is nice that things are happening . . and it's fun to evaluate . .

Developer secures $300 million for downtown Manhattan condo project
Lightstone Group plans to build an 800-foot-tall spire at 130 William St.



Daniel Geiger


Quote:
The Lightstone Group secured a $305 million loan to build an 800-foot-tall condo tower in lower Manhattan.

The company sourced the construction loan from Mack Real Estate Credit Strategies, a specialty lender. With financing in place, the tower will begin rising at 130 William St. in September, Mitchell Hochberg, the president and chief operating officer of Lightstone told Crain's. The project, which will likely be completed by fall 2019, will cost about $600 million to erect.

Developers across the city have raced to construct condo spires with apartments costing millions of dollars apiece. With so many similar projects on the market, observers feel there is a glut of pricey units and developers will have to slash prices to sell apartments, possibly thrusting projects into financial turmoil.

Hochberg said 130 William St. will be different. Lightstone worked through a complex process of assembling several properties to create the development parcel and the firm was able acquire the sites for below-market land prices, giving it leeway to sell the units in the building at a lower price than the competition.

"I think the high-end market is challenged right now," Hochberg said. "But we do think that if you're priced well, which we think we will be, and located well and deliver a product that has value and good design, there's always going to be a lot of people who are interested in buying."

Lightstone aims to sell units at an average of about $2,000 per square foot, a high price tag but still below the $3,000-plus per foot that other luxury projects are seeking.

Half of the building will also be comprised of studios and one bedrooms, smaller apartments that will carry a lower price and will be accessible to a broad range of buyers.


"You have a lot of young, single people downtown and moving to the neighborhood because it's developing as a community and it's more affordable," Hochberg said.

Major banks have pulled back from financing condo developments as concerns about supply have grown. Richard Mack, a real estate investor who founded Mack Real Estate Credit Strategies in 2014, said he felt comfortable lending to Lightstone because of 130 William St.'s lower price points and the developer was putting in half the money for the project in equity. Mack founded his firm when he saw a pullback in lending at the time and an opportunity for specialty financiers.

"Even if the condo market continues to turn downward, we felt comfortable," said Mack, noting that the building could sell out for as low as $1,000 a foot and his firm would still recoup its loan. "This is a strong sponsor with the balance sheet and the acumen to complete this project successfully."

Lightstone initially planned to build a 500-foot tall tower at the site but recently reversed course in favor of a much taller spire.

"We wanted our building to have spectacular views," Hochberg said. "Residents will be able to see the East and Hudson Rivers and the Statue of Liberty. It's a 360-degree panorama."


Most super tall towers have featured ultra-pricey penthouses that cost much more per square foot than lower units. "We'll have a number of beautiful penthouses but they're not going to be even close to the numbers for the rock star penthouses you hear about in places like Billionaire's Row," Hochberg said.

Lightstone is in the process of choosing an architect and finalizing the design for the project.

Lightstone Group seeks EB-5 funds for $700M FiDi condo project
Architect David Adjaye tapped to design 228-unit tower





By Rich Bockmann
May 11, 2017


Quote:
David Lichtenstein’s Lightstone Group is seeking EB-5 funds for its 228-unit Financial District condominium tower, which will be designed by noted architect David Adjaye and is expected to be valued at $701 million.

The developer recently launched a teaser site for the 800-foot building at 130 William Street, which it is calling the Wall Street Tower.

On Lightstone’s EB-5 website, the company is seeking $100 million, or 18 percent of the project’s total cost, from investors, and is marketing the project to investors in China and Vietnam.

Representatives for the company did not immediately return calls for comment.

In March, Lightstone secured a $305 million construction loan for the 59-story tower from Mack Credit Real Estate Strategies, and plans to put $112.5 million of its own cash and land equity into the project, according to its EB-5 website.

The company bought the site at 130 William Street for $60 million in 2014, and paid another $15 million the following year to buy additional air rights.

On a Vietnamese-language blog Lightstone identifies the British-Ghanaian architect Adjaye as the designer.

“What made the Wall Street Tower truly special was that it was the design. We have the world-famous architect David Adjaye, who designed this building. The building is over 800 feet tall, with more than 60 floors. The building has panoramic views over the entire city. You can see the port of New York, along with bridges, the Statue of Liberty.”


Adjaye is best known for designing the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

In New York, he designed a 124-unit, affordable housing building at 155th Street in Sugar Hill for the Broadway Housing Communities and the Studio Museum in Harlem.

The marketing materials for Lightstone’s tower boast a rooftop observatory for residents and two floors of amenities including a wine cellar, indoor pool and spa, fitness center, lounge, movie theater and children’s playroom.

The teaser site indicates pricing will start at roughly $630,000 for a studio and $4.7 million for a four-bedroom.

The developer is still waiting for approval on the condo-offering plan it filed with the New York State Attorney General’s office in December. Construction is expected to be completed in November 2019

How creative. Same with "Manhattan Tower" aka 30 Hudson Yards.
Anyways, glad this is moving forward. Another 800 footer for Lower Manhattan!

I believe a redesign per Lightstone to incorporate more units, taller height, and maximum space usage.

I love David Adjaye's buildings. This tower will be great, especially at over 800 ft.

And this will be his first skyscraper. Another starchitect skyscraper for NYC.

^This one looks nice, but it could go the way of One Journal Square, due to Sir Adjaye's Russian ties...

One Journal Square has nothing to do with Adjaye or Russia. It was a media thing last week because one of the Kushners reportedly cited White House connections in their pitch to potential Chinese investors.

Wow, how interesting. It seems to be a contemporary, stretched Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana!
