Work is ramping up at the site of Two Manhattan West, a forthcoming 935-foot-tall commercial skyscraper and number 12 on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest projects underway in the city. The final component of the Manhattan West complex, the 58-story tower will join its nearly identical sibling One Manhattan West, though it will cap off with a slightly shorter parapet. Skidmore Owings & Merrill is the designer and Brookfield is the developer of the two-million-square-foot project.

YIMBY checked in recently at 520 Fifth Avenue, the site of a planned 920-foot-tall skyscraper that takes the number 13 spot on our countdown of the tallest projects in progress in New York City. Located in Midtown at the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 43rd Street, the plot sits cleared for construction, which YIMBY expects will commence sometime in 2020. YIMBY last reported that Handel Architects is designing and Arthur Hooper of Ceruzzi Properties is developing the project in conjunction with SMI USA. Ceruzzi purchased the property in 2015 for $275 million from Thor Equities.
