The Pendry Hotel at 4 Manhattan West is rising fast in Midtown West. The 21-story development will offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on the tower’s upper floors. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the building features a distinctive wavy façade on the northern and southern elevations, which is now visible in the reinforced concrete structure. The glass curtain wall will be installed later this year.
The massive upcoming development dubbed Hudson Exchange West will sit close to the waterfront of downtown Jersey City, and the first towers, designed by Perkins Eastman, will yield a combined total of 625,000 square feet. The 18-acre mixed-use master plan is being developed by Brookfield Properties and the grand plan’s second residential tower is already making its way into the skyline, with topping-out now drawing near.
Permits have been filed for a 29-story mixed-use building at 221 West Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Located between Freeman Street and Eagle Street, the corner lot is eight city blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. Brookfield Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications, and is responsible for several other mixed-use properties in Greenpoint Landing.
Partners Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group have announced the next large phase of development at Greenpoint Landing. The centerpiece will be two residential towers designed by OMA. One acre of public waterfront space designed by James Corner Field Operations will surround the mixed-income housing which will also include another new seven-story building. Thirty percent of the 745 units will be affordable housing. This project will also result in further expansion of Greenpoint’s waterfront esplanade. Marmol Radziner is the interior designer while Beyer Blinder Belle is the executive architect and interior designer.
Brookfield is officially set to construct Two Manhattan West without an anchor tenant. The near-supertall tower will be the second-tallest skyscraper in the Manhattan West complex, comprising two million square feet of space, rising 935 feet to its rooftop, and enclosing 62 floors of office space, all at a cost of approximately $2 billion. Meanwhile, work on One Manhattan West is wrapping up, with the facade closing in on completion along the upper floors, while the construction crane is now coming down on the northern elevation.
