Yesterday, YIMBY reported on the latest progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, in Midtown West/Hudson Yards. Today, the first filings have appeared for the site’s second office tower, which will sit on the northwest corner of 31st Street and Ninth Avenue, and has evidently seen a moderate height chop.
The last time YIMBY checked in on progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, a little over a year ago, construction had just reached above ground level. Now, the superstructure for the first tower, at 401 Ninth Avenue, is closing in on the halfway mark, and in the past few days, glass installation has also begun.
Plenty of attention has been paid to Oxford and Related’s Hudson Yards, but just next to that mega-development is another. That is Manhattan West, from developer Brookfield Properties, and its first new office tower is quickly rising above ground.
YIMBY has brought you several composite renderings of what the skyline will look like over the next few years. Now we have a fresh image of what the city’s future holds, thanks to YIMBY Forums user Thomas Koloski, which illustrates the major changes soon coming to Jersey City, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Most of the projects added to the image are either already under construction or imminently rising, and their collective impact on the cityscape will push the New York City skyline to new, Coruscantian heights.
Over the past few months, the five-building, seven-million-square-foot mixed-use development dubbed Manhattan West, located on the mega-block bound by Ninth and Tenth avenues and West 31st and 33rd streets, has been quickly taking shape. In April, the project’s 62-story, 844-unit residential tower at 401 West 31st Street, dubbed Three Manhattan West, topped out. And work has been underway for over a year to modernize the 16-story, 1.8-million square-foot building at 450 West 33rd Street, dubbed Five Manhattan West. Now, new renderings have been revealed of the office portion of the project, dubbed One and Two Manhattan West.
