The 130 William – Aston Martin

New residential development in NYC

After making its debut in luxury real estate in Miami last year, Aston Martin has revealed the latest Aston Martin residences, a collaboration with architect Sr David Adjaye and Lightstone, a privately held real estate company in the US. The five luxury homes, available for purchase at 130 William, each come with a special-edition Aston Martin DBX.

Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, and David collaborated on the project to bring the character of Aston Martin’s design and artistry to 130 William’s architecture and interiors.

“This is a fascinating project for the Aston Martin design team to work on and a great opportunity to collaborate with Sir David,” Marek says in a statement.

“It is our first real estate project in New York City but our second collaboration in real estate design after the Aston Martin Residences in Miami.

“We can apply what we have learned in Miami and also bring our unique automotive design skills to these beautiful luxury homes.”

The vision

David is responsible for the vision of 130 William, designing its exterior architecture as well as the building’s interiors, which include 242 residences, more than 1858 square meters of amenities, and a new plaza park. The building stands at approximately 244 metres with 66 stories.

Inspiration for the structure came from New York’s history of masonry architecture. The custom hand-cast facade features refined bronze detailing – a contemporary interpretation of the stonework that characterized classic Manhattan architecture.

Another signature feature is the shape of arched windows, inspired by the lofts that were once popular in New York City.

“The 130 William Aston Martin homes have been touched in a very particular way that merges our design sensibilities,” says David.

“Together with the limited-edition SUVs that come with these units, we’ve created a truly unique signature that blends our two disciplines.”

Additionally, the Senior Vice President of Development at Lightstone, Scott Avram, acknowledges that 130 William is an “architectural triumph”.

“In developing this collaboration, we knew we had to offer something truly unique. The partnership between David Adjaye, Aston Martin and Lightstone will bring to market homes unlike anything seen before in New York City,” he notes.

130 William features

The five luxury homes are on the 59th and 60th floors of 130 William. Each property features a private outdoor corridor traversing the entire length of the residence, with screens dividing the balconies into areas for dining and relaxing. The residences are fully furnished with hand-crafted materials, textiles and furniture from the Aston Martin Home Collection.

Within each home, tenants are treated to a grand living and dining room, featuring furnishings, textiles and fittings curated by Marek and David.

The living room offers city-wide views and modern furnishings. The sofas and armchairs combine elements of leather, metal and fabric, as well as detailing inspired by Aston Martin’s automotive interiors.

The open-plan kitchen is adjacent to the dining room and features textured blackened oak Italian cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances, marble countertops hand-selected from the Apuan Alps in Tuscany, and a fixed Nero Marquina marble top that provides additional bar seating.

The master bedroom contains an expansive bed with cashmere headboard cushions as well as bedside and side tables. It also includes spacious walk-in closets, wall-mounted lighting, a Flos light track system and a lounge chair by Hans Wegner.

Buyers have the option of customizing one of the rooms in the two- and three-bedroom homes into a racing simulator, an office and library space, or an extra bedroom.

Additionally, bathrooms include textured Italian Salvatori marble throughout. The master bathroom features a marble soaking tub, marble double vanity sinks, a walk-in shower and water closet. Secondary bathrooms incorporate Grigio Versilia marble, and Bianco Carrera marble and powder rooms include a bamboo-textured Grigia Versilia marble.

The five properties include two penthouses, priced at US$11.5 million, US$10.5 million for, and three loggia residences priced from US$3.985 million, US$5.985 million and US$10 million.
