Brookfield Property Partners announced Australian-influenced premium coffee shop Bluestone Lane will open at The Eugene at Manhattan West.
Located at 435 West 31st Street, The Eugene is a 62-story, 844-unit luxury residential tower with more than 50,000 s/f of dedicated amenity space that is now leasing.
Inspired by the coffee culture of Melbourne, Australia, Bluestone Lane’s coffee can be found at 10 locations in New York with a focus on producing high quality coffee and healthy food. Bluestone Lane at Manhattan West is expected to open in June 2017.
“Bluestone Lane is one of New York’s hottest coffee spots, and we are thrilled to welcome them to Manhattan West,” said Ric Clark, Senior Managing Partner and Chairman of Brookfield Property Group and Brookfield Property Partners.
“With The Eugene’s modern luxury living, together with Manhattan West’s offices, shops, culinary options, and two acres of world-class public open space, we are creating a vibrant new destination at the center of Manhattan’s newest neighborhood.
“The addition of Bluestone Lane, an incredibly popular destination at our Grace Building at Bryant Park, will bring high quality coffee, delicious food and an exciting amenity to the new residents of The Eugene and the growing workforce of Manhattan West.”
“We are incredibly excited to be a part of this development. Manhattan West is going to be a fantastic addition to New York City, and The Eugene is the perfect location and community for Bluestone Lane to call its next home”, said Nick Stone, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Bluestone Lane.
Michael Goldban, Senior Vice President for Retail Leasing, and Mark Kostic, Vice President of Retail Leasing, represented Brookfield Property Partners. Bluestone Lane Chief Development Officer Jonathan Krieger, also of RKF, represented Bluestone Lane.
Manhattan West is an eight-acre, six-building mixed-use development, stretching from Ninth Avenue to Tenth Avenue and 31st Street to 33rd Street.
Manhattan West will feature nearly six million square feet of Class-A office space, luxury residences, a boutique hotel, landscaped gardens and street-front retail that will bring together high-end, experiential shops and innovative culinary concepts, all enlivened with public art and events by Arts Brookfield, Brookfield’s arts and entertainment program.
Wholefoods will open a 60,000 s/f space at 5 Manhattan West offering dine-in, take-out or shopping for chef-inspired culinary and beverage options from around the world.
And the propertyʼs “sports destinationˮ will be anchored by the National Hockey League, which is relocating its headquarters to One Manhattan West, the 67-story, 2.1-million-square-foot office tower expected to open in 2019.
The NHL — which will join anchor tenant Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, & Flom LLP – will open 15,000 s/f store to feature fan experiences.
With more than 250,000 s/f of retail space within Manhattan West, Brookfield is creating a new destination for food, fitness, technology, fashion and sports, with more than half of the space devoted to food and fitness.
A fitness destination will feature multiple boutique healthy lifestyle brands, creating a model that promotes a selection of fitness opportunities.
