The law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore has finalized negotiations to establish its New York headquarters at Brookfield’s Two Manhattan West. As anchor tenant of the property, Cravath will occupy 13 floors, or approximately 481,000 square feet, of the Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed skyscraper. The firm is expected to occupy the building by 2024.
“We are thrilled Cravath, one of the nation’s leading law firms, will anchor Two Manhattan West, joining our community of tenants at Manhattan West that represent those at the top of their fields,” said Ben Brown, managing partner, Brookfield Property Group. “Manhattan West’s modern office space, dynamic amenities, attractive design, and unrivaled transportation access continues to attract premier companies, and Cravath is the latest example. We look forward to welcoming them to our Manhattan West community.”
The forthcoming tower will top out at 58 stories and is one of three primary commercial properties within the surrounding Manhattan West campus in the Hudson Yards section of Manhattan, along with One, Three, and Five Manhattan West. Additional components include Pendry Manhattan West Hotel and a residential tower known as The Eugene at Six Manhattan West. A two-acre landscaped public plaza sits at the center of the development with ground-level retail and dining components at both the northern and southern boundaries.
The entire campus spans over 7 million square feet spread across eight acres of land. Its boundaries stretch from Ninth Avenue to Tenth Avenue and from 31st Street to 33rd Street.
