15 William Street, northwest corner of William and Beaver Sts, Google Maps
319 condominium apartments, 47 stories
Architect Tsao & McKown Architects
The Manocherian family started construction of a rental building on this site in 2004. In October of 2005, 15 William St was sold to SDS Investments for $90 million, who invited Andre Balazs to co-develop and brand the property.
The William Beaver House (so named because it’s at the intersection of William and Beaver streets), designed by Tsao & McKown Architects, will rise 47 stories on one corner of a five-pointed intersection just across the street from Delmonico’s and close to the newly reconstructed Hanover Park.
The building will offer 319 condominiums altogether, including some spacious two-bedroom layouts, 48 custom-furnished units, 10 duplex “townhouses” with private terraces, and three penthouses with private terraces. Units have nine-and-a-half-foot ceilings, eight-foot windows, 18-foot living rooms, Burmese teak floors and washer/dryers.
Expected to be completed in early 2008, the building is being marketed by the Sunshine Group.
