JPMorgan Chase occupies 123K SF in Five Manhattan West, Brookfield's 1.8M SF, 17-story office building in its Manhattan West megaproject on Manhattan's Far West Side. But two months after Whole Foods committed to a 60K SF grocery store on the building's ground floor, the lending giant has decided to expand heavily.
JPMorgan signed a 305K SF expansion deal, announced Monday, to take a total footprint of 428K SF in the building at 450 West 33rd St., along 10th Avenue. Brookfield spent $300M renovating the former warehouse into a glass-enclosed office building with enormous floor plates, a project designed by Rex Architects.
