DESIGN STUDIES REVEALED FOR ADJAYE’S NYC TOWER

Early design studies for Adjaye Associates' first New York City (NYC) skyscraper have been unveiled, and reveal gold details and arched windows that expand as the building rises, ArchDaily reports. The 61-story, 750-ft.-tall Wall Street Tower condominium building planned for 130 William Street in NYC’s Financial District will offer luxury amenities, including sports facilities, a movie theater, a rooftop observatory and more. The building will have 244 units and is being developed by the Lightstone Group.

ELEVATOR WILL LINK JEWISH QUARTER, WESTERN WALL

Israeli leaders are planning to build an elevator and underground tunnel at the Western Wall Plaza in Jerusalem to allow greater accessibility, Arutz Sheva reports. According to the proposal, the ILS50-million (US$14-million) project will grant the elderly and disabled easier access to the wall and the Jewish Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem. The elevator will operate within a 33-m shaft that will connect the Jewish Quarter to the level of the Western Wall below, and a 65-m-long pedestrian tunnel will lead from the elevator to the checkpoint at the wall. The Western Wall is considered one of the holiest sites for the Jewish faith.
