130 William is a slender 66-story, 800-foot luxury condominium tower in Manhattan’s Financial District of New York. It features 242 units ranging from studios to four-bedrooms. The precast concrete façade’s textured dark tone panels lead to bright and airy interiors. The rows of arched windows reference the historic warehouses of New York City with an eye toward innovation. Additional amenities in this skyscraper include a full-scale health and wellness club, IMAX theater, spa, private rooftop observatory deck and a new public park at the base. McSal’s solutions created an affordable concrete structure over earlier design iterations while improving architectural layouts, occupant comfort, and structural performance.
The Beach offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline for its 336 residences within the Newport district of Jersey City, New Jersey. The structure consists of a 12-story and 25-story tower with a five-story middle connector building that features rooftop amenity space. Located on the edge of the Hudson River, the high-rise tower consists of three unique patterns that alternate on each floor to emulate the currents of the river below. The buildings also feature ground-floor retail space and numerous amenities along the river walk.
The Ellipse is a 533,000 SF luxury residential tower built over a pier at the edge of the Hudson River. The 444-foot elliptical shaped building has 42 stories and a total of 381 units. Its efficient flat plate concrete construction allows for floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Manhattan Skyline. Units vary from studios to three-bedroom apartments and penthouse suites. The Ellipse offers over 24,000 SF of premier amenities including a 75-foot outdoor pool and terrace built over the 230-space, precast concrete parking garage.

50 West 66th Street is a 69-story, 775-foot residential tower on the Upper West Side in the Lincoln Center neighborhood. The tower includes 127 condominiums that offer views of Central Park and the surrounding skyline. The unique structural solution provides a transfer system for the tower columns that simultaneously buttress the building. Large double-height spaces were created at the base of the building for a regulation basketball court as well as a synagogue which occupies the majority of the ground floor. Water Slosh Tank Dampers are utilized within the building crown to control lateral motions, improve occupant comfort and economize the structure.
