Inside Brookfield's Manhattan West Megaproject
Once Complete, Brookfield's Manhattan West mixed-use project will feature 6M SF of office space, a 2-acre public park, a boutique hotel, more than 200K SF of retail space and a luxury rental tower, all put together with 100,000 tons of steel.
The first of the megaproject’s two brand-new office buildings, One Manhattan West, topped out last month and was shown to the media Friday.
The view from the 60th floor, which is not yet built out and has been leased to consulting firm Accenture, shows views of Hudson Yards, downtown Manhattan and the Empire State Building.
The Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed building, slated to open in the last quarter of 2019, is already 90% leased. Accounting firm EY has the largest lease there, signing up for 640K SF in the 67-story, 2.1M SF building last year. Law firm Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP has leased 635K SF, while Accenture and the National Hockey League have inked deals for 250K SF and 175K SF, respectively.
The second ground-up office tower, Two Manhattan West, is currently in foundation and no leases for the 2M SF of available space have been announced so far.
Brookfield is also bringing the city’s first Pendry Hotel, a 164-room operation, to the site, as well as 240K SF for food, retail and pop-ups. Whole Foods and cycling concept Peloton have inked leases on the site.
Along with the new hotel, the two new office towers and the luxury rental tower, known as the Eugene, the $4.5B project features the Lofts, a 200K SF existing office building, and Five Manhattan West, a 1960s-era office building Brookfield spent $350M redeveloping.
