Two Manhattan West, a 58-story commercial tower, has officially topped out in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the 935-foot-tall, 2-million-square-foot skyscraper is the final component in Brookfield Properties’ five-building Manhattan West complex, and stands directly to the south of its 996-foot-tall fraternal twin, One Manhattan West.

Brookfield’s Manhattan West complex now includes a new Whole Foods Market within Five Manhattan West. The store occupies 60,245 square feet of the lower level of the building, which is located at 450 West 33rd Street in Hudson Yards.
Construction of the supertall office building One Manhattan West in Midtown has made rapid progress since our last reporting in October. The project has reached a few milestones while under the radar, including the superstructure finally stretching above its immediate neighbor, Three Manhattan West. The steel massing is 22 floors below the superstructure, and the curtain wall façade, which just began installation last October, is now 19 floors below the steel. The ballooning steel envelope is now significantly above its immediate neighbors, with the curtain wall starting to reach the same threshold. Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill LLP are responsible for the design.
