Five apartments for sale at Sir David Adjaye’s first New York City tower have been custom-designed by luxury carmaker Aston Martin. Located on the 59th and 60th floors of 130 William, a 66-story condo in the Financial District, the exclusive units come with a special edition Aston Martin DBX, an SUV designed in collaboration with Adjaye. The five condos include two penthouses, one priced at $11.5 million and the second at $10.5 million, and three loggia residences, priced at $3.985 million, $5.985 million, and $10 million.

“It was exciting to find an opportunity to collaborate with the Aston Martin team,” Adjaye said in a press release. “The 130 William Aston Martin homes have been touched in a very particular way that merges our design sensibilities. Together with the limited edition SUVs that come with these units, we’ve created a truly unique signature that blends our two disciplines.”

All five residences come fully furnished, boast private outdoor loggias, and feature elements and hand-crafted materials from the Aston Martin Home Collection by Italian manufacturer Formitalia. As recently released renderings show, the entry is decked out with Aston Martin’s signature crosshatch pattern in a bronze finish with wallpaper designed by Adjaye Associates. There’s also an arched smoked-glass mirror created by the carmaker that is a nod to the skyscraper’s dramatic window arches.

In the living and dining areas, furniture pieces mix elements of leather, metal, and fabric “to evoke the richly crafted and tactile qualities of Aston Martin’s automotive interiors,” according to a press release. The sleek open-concept kitchen features blackened oak Italian cabinetry, Gaggenau appliances, marble countertops, and a cantilevered Nero Marquina marble top.

In the master bedroom, there are custom-cashmere headboard cushions and metal details and bedside tables by Formitalia. Other perks include walk-in closets, wall-mounted lighting, and lounge chair by Hans Wegner.

Appealing to car lovers, residents will also be able to choose to turn one of the rooms into a race simulator space, with a race simulator created by Aston Martin and British tech company Curv Racing Simulators.

To top it all off, every residence comes with the Aston Martin DBX designed with Adjaye, the first time the company has collaborated with an architect. The vehicle’s interiors complement 130 William’s facade, with a mix of real stone accents, marble inlays, and Satin Walnut wood.

Marek Reichman, the chief creative officer at Aston Martin, said: “This is a fascinating project for the Aston Martin design team to work on and a great opportunity to collaborate with Sir David. 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.”

Developed by Lightstone, 130 William topped out in FiDi last May, reaching 800 feet tall. The skyscraper includes 242 units, 20,000 square feet of amenities, and a new plaza park. In partnership with Hill West Architects, Adjaye designed both the facade and the interiors to reflect the city’s historic masonry architecture.

Amenities include a fitness center and spa, a swimming pool, yoga studio, basketball court, an IMAX movie theater, golf simulator, lounge, a game room, and a playroom. There will also be a rooftop observatory with grilling stations and private cabanas.
