Construction continues at Brookfield Properties' Manhattan West, the six building mixed use mega-development adjacent to the new Hudson Yards neighborhood. The latest component of the project to begin construction, One Manhattan West, continues to rise. Designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM), the 67-story tower will offer 2.1 million square feet of office space when it opens in 2019. Curtain wall installation continues on the lower third of the office tower, while steel superstructure has surpassed the half-way mark.
A slightly smaller 62-story office tower at Two Manhattan West, also designed by SOM, will follow in 2021 on an adjacent site to the south.
