Construction is now complete on the Pendry Manhattan West Hotel, a 281-foot-tall mixed-use structure at Four Manhattan West in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the 21-story project makes up one of five separate buildings in the Manhattan West master plan, which sits directly across Tenth Avenue from Hudson Yards. The property is located along West 33rd Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, wedged between One Manhattan West and Five Manhattan West, and will yield 164 guest rooms as well as condominiums on the upper levels.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is now reviewing proposals from Howard Hughes Corporation to construct a new pair of high-rise towers at 250 Water Street and a multi-phase expansion of the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan’s Financial District. The developer has selected Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as lead architect with supporting design services from JHPA and historic preservation experts Higgins Quasebarth & Partners.
Construction is rising steadily at Two Manhattan West, a 935-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown West and number ten on our countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield, the 58-story structure is rising directly to the south of the completed One Manhattan West, its 996-foot-tall fraternal twin. Two Manhattan West is rising at the corner of West 31st Street and Ninth Avenue and will feature the same architectural design like its northern sibling with yield 2 million square feet of office space at an expected cost of $2 billion.
Demolition is continuing at 12 West 57th Street in Midtown, the site of a 672-foot-tall skyscraper that comes in at number 21 on our countdown of the tallest projects underway in the city. The 52-story project is designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill (SOM) and is being developed by Sheldon Solow of Solow Management Corp., who filed permits back in 2019. A preliminary rendering was revealed in early May, showing a slender black glass monolith rising behind a white glass and marbled stone podium. The development required the demolition of three low-rise structures spanning from 10 to 20 West 57th Street.
Installation of the stone and glass cladding is complete at 315 East 46th Street, the new nine-story home of the Permanent Mission of the United Arab Emirates to the United Nation in Turtle Bay, Midtown East. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, developed by Fisher Brothers, and erected by Plaza Construction, the 145-foot-tall structure is now almost fully finished.
