Brookfield opens its One Manhattan West

Brookfield Properties has opened One Manhattan West, its 67-story, 2.1-million-square-foot office tower on the corner of Ninth Avenue and 33rd Street.

Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, One Manhattan West is the first new office tower to open as part of Brookfield’s Manhattan West complex, an eight-acre district being developed on theWest Side.

Approximately 90 percent leased, with 97,000 rentable square feet still available, the new tower’s roster of tenants include Accenture, EY, McKool Smith, the National Hockey League and Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

“One Manhattan West is New York City’s newest iconic office address, and we are proud to open its doors 90 percent leased,” said Ric Clark, Chairman, Brookfield Property Group. “Our aim for One Manhattan West was to create a timeless office tower that would help companies driving the world’s economy attract, retain and get the most out of their workforces. The finished product exceeds even our own substantial expectations. I want to thank our first-rate team of design, construction and financial partners for helping us realize this vision.”

Stretching from Ninth to Tenth Avenues and 31st to 33rd Streets, Manhattan West is Brookfield Properties’ newest placemaking destination.
Once complete, it will feature six million square feet of office space, 844 apartments at The Eugene, and the Pendry Manhattan West boutique hotel. There will be over 200,000 s/f of retail and two-acre public plaza.

Built with AECOM Tishman as General Contractor, One Manhattan West anchors the northeast corner of the site and rises 995 feet as the tallest building in the development.

The other commercial buildings include Two Manhattan West, on the southeast corner at 31st and Ninth to be anchored by Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP.

The fully leased Five Manhattan West has been transformed as a collaborative urban space with large floor plates and floor-to-ceiling glass for companies including Amazon, JP Morgan Chase, Markit and R/GA Media.

Whole Foods and Peloton are creating new concepts anchoring the ground-floor retail, and Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group will open a restaurant on Manhattan West’s two-acre landscaped plaza.

The Lofts at Manhattan West, a boutique, 13-story building that features high ceilings, terraces and exposed I-beam columns, is home to the coworking operator, Spaces.
