Aston Martin’s adventure in real estate has kicked up a gear: the car manufacturer has tapped Sir David Adjaye to collaborate on five apartments, set across the 59th and 60th floors of New York’s 130 William.
The project is the brand’s first real estate project in the city, and its interior design elements nod to the influence of the car company. Smoked glass mirrors reflect the New York skyline, and Aston Martin’s crosshatch pattern appears on bronze coloured wallpaper designed by Adjaye. Elsewhere metal and leather furniture also echo the brand’s car interiors.
Marble figures heavily in the apartments – which come with two or three bedrooms – across tabletops, wall panelling in the home studies and bathrooms, where owners can soak in a raised tub while admiring the view.
Loggias wrap around three of the five homes, divided up by screens so owners can use them as separate areas. Rooms inside can also be customised, with the option of adding a racing simulator. For those that prefer the real thing, one of the Aston Martin DBX SUVs comes with the homes, also designed by Adjaye.
The loggia properties begin at $3.95m, raising to $11.5m for the penthouse. And 130 William – the architect’s first residential skyscraper in the USA, designed in collaboration with local firm Hill West – includes a long list of amenities, such as a pool, fitness centre and massage rooms, IMAX theatre, golf simulator and even a pet spa.
