Real Estate Weekly watched crews install the first few panels of the glassy curtain wall going in at Manhattan West‘s 450 West 33rd Street, the 16-story, 1.8-million square-foot behemoth located near Penn Station, which Brookfield Properties is renovating top-to-bottom. The transformation is costing $200 million, and this past November, the Wall Street Journal reported that JP Morgan Chase signed a 123,000 square-foot lease for one of the floors. REX Associates is designing, and completion is expected in 2016.
