This week luxury British automaker Aston Martin revealed they are teaming up with renowned architect Sir David Adjaye have joined forces to create a limited-edition collection of five luxury homes in 130 William, New York City.
130 William is a luxury high-rise tower in the financial district. Each of these five homes will come with a special edition Aston Martin DBX, also custom designed by Architect Sir David Adjaye.
Inspiration for both the exterior and interior design comes from New York’s historic masonry architecture, which has been translated into custom hand-cast façades with refined bronze detailing, and a contemporary interpretation of the stonework that characterized classic Manhattan architecture.
The five residences will be located on the 50th and 60th levels of the 66-story building and will consist of two penthouses and three loggia residences,a feature that’s rare with New York City residences. Furniture and materials for the interiors will come from the Aston Martin Home Collection by the Italian manufacturer Formitalia, each of them curated by Marek Reichman and Sir David Adjaye.
Each home features a private outdoor balcony, grand living room and dining room with city-wide views. Buyers will also have the option to customize one room to feature a racing simulator created by Aston Martin Design and Curv Racing Simulators. Curv Racing Simulators is a new British technology company founded by Darren Turner, an industry leader in racing simulation technology.
Opening out onto the outdoor living areas, the living room offers city-wide views, clean lines, and sleek furnishings from the Aston Martin Home Collection by Formitalia, with every piece made in Italy. The sofas and armchairs combine elements of leather, metal, and fabric, as well as beautiful detailing, to evoke the richly crafted and tactile qualities of Aston Martin’s automotive interiors.while the kitchens will be equipped with Gaggenau appliances. While views of the city are framed in for the interior by the building’s signature arched windows, the interior also spills out to covered terraces that overlook the river. And for the cherry on top, the homes come with a special edition Aston Martin DBX SUV.
In terms of customization, new owners will have the option of turning one of the rooms (in the two and three-bedroom homes) into a racing simulator room, home office, library space, or another bedroom.
Following on from their success with the Aston Martin Residences in Miami, the 130 William project marks the brand’s second real estate project, although it will be their first foray into the New York City real estate market. It also marks Sir David Adjaye’s first New York high-rise project.
130 William is developed by Lightstone with sales and marketing exclusively by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. Two of the five homes in the collection are penthouses priced at $11.5 million and $10.5 million. The other three homes are priced at $3.985 million, $5.985 million and $10 million.
