Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group and Brookfield Properties announced the New York restaurant and hospitality leader will create a new restaurant at Brookfield’s Manhattan West.
The signature venue will open in 2020 and will serve as the anchor restaurant for Manhattan West,
Brookfield’s eight-acre, six-building mixed-use development, stretching from Ninth Avenue to Tenth Avenue and 31st Street to 33rd Street in Manhattan.
“Brookfield’s Manhattan West project represents a wonderful opportunity to bring warm hospitality and culinary excellence to this burgeoning corner of New York City. We are excited to play a role in imagining placemaking possibilities for this remarkable neighborhood, and we look forward to serving all who visit, work, and live on the West side,” said Union Square Hospitality Group founder and CEO Danny Meyer.
“We know firsthand there is nothing more important to creating a welcoming, dynamic and successful placemaking destination today than ensuring it offers a world-class culinary experience,” said Brookfield Property Group Senior Managing Partner and Chairman Ric Clark.
“That’s why we are excited that Danny Meyer has chosen Manhattan West as the location for his newest endeavor. With this announcement, we are proud to say Manhattan West will feature offerings from the world’s leading restauranteur, fitness company, hotelier and marketplace.”
Manhattan West will feature nearly six million square feet of Class-A office space, luxury homes at The Eugene, and a boutique hotel. Gardens and street-front retail will bring together high-end, experiential shops and innovative culinary concepts, along with public art and events by Arts Brookfield, Brookfield’s own arts and entertainment program.
The 250,000 s/f of retail space at Manhattan West will be anchored by Union Square Hospitality Group’s restaurant; Peloton Studios, a state-of-the-art, 40,000 s/f flagship location that will house the fitness and technology leader’s broadcast and production operations and several studios; and a first-of-its-kind, 60,000 s/f Whole Foods Market. Brookfield has signed office tenants Amazon, JP Morgan Chase and RGA at Five Manhattan West, and Accenture, EY, McKool Smith, the NHL, and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom at One Manhattan West.
Manhattan West sits immediately adjacent to the soon-to-be-redeveloped Empire Station/Penn Station Complex – the busiest train station in North America – and near the new 7-train station at Hudson Yards, New York City’s first subway extension in decades.
Brookfield was represented by Erin Grace and Patrick Smith at JLL as well as Michael Goldban, Mark Kostic and Jason Maurer in-house at Brookfield.
