First and tallest tower in Manhattan West complex is now open





OCTOBER 30, 2019
BY ALEXANDRA ALEXA

The doors of One Manhattan West have officially opened. The Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed tower spans across 67 stories and 2.1 million square feet of office space, and at 995 feet, it’s the tallest building in the development. Located at the corner of Ninth Avenue and 33rd Street, the tower is the first building within Brookfield Properties’ eight-acre Manhattan West complex to open. It’s already 90 percent leased, with tenants including Accenture, the National Hockey League, Skadden Arps, and Slate.
Quote:
The structure is comprised of a reinforced concrete core and steel moment frame and was designed to accommodate the Amtrak railways running beneath Manhattan West. A transparent, 40-foot tall lobby surrounds the monolithic, carved structural core, which is clad in 400 tons of Italian travertine. The tower is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification.
Quote:
“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,” said Ric Clark, chairman of Brookfield Property Group.

“Through an integrated design approach between our architectural and engineering teams, SOM endeavored to create an icon for what will ultimately be one of the largest new developments in a generation in New York City,” added Skidmore, Owings & Merrill design partner Gary Haney. “And this is true not only on the skyline; this building also boasts one of the most dramatic lobbies in New York City.”

This is nothing less than one of the most beautiful skyscrapers ever built. I only wish they left the building as a stand-alone structure and it was only glass surrounding that gorgeous stone core.

Major kudos to Brookfield for building this thing.

And then i look at The Eugene and I take ALL the kudos away.

Shame on you for thinking you deserve kudos, Brookfield. Shame on you. (Slaps hand). (Hard)

This project is a beast. 9th Ave. is the new 6th Ave., with monumental modernist slabs.

If I were to say---and I might as well---that this tower looks like little more than a slightly pregnant blue glass box with rounded corners, what would any of you say to challenge my assertion?

I'd like to be 100% sold on this tower in that particular manner, if anyone out there accepts my friendly challenge. But for now I'd definitely give it an A++ for sheer mass. Maybe when it starts to get filled out/up with tenant space, I'll give it high grades for "texture", as it were.

PS: The lobby and outdoor space beat all hell out of anything else that could be mentioned that would otherwise mitigate the aforementioned "(read: positive) criticism".

PPS: Maybe that's just it, though? Am I supposed to be taken aback by possibly compelling architectural features that for some towers mean the difference between "meh.." and "game changer", but for others---this one, evidently---are what that put them in that latter category from the start...i.e. do not pass Go, do not collect $200?

I have to say, I agree that this building is beautiful. I see it practically every day, and it always stands out to me, and not because of the height (although that counts as something). It's a very simple and elegant design. I can't wait to see it's fraternal twin rise, to see if they will indeed have that same relationship the original Twin Towers had. I believe it will, and further believe that the Manhattan West complex is an improvement on the original WTC complex. I remember before 9/11, there was a plan floating around to cover some of the plaza, similar in a way to what is happening at the Sears Tower now. I remember when the retail area was added to the Manhattan West complex, some didn't like it. But I believe that we would see something similar happening or already happened at the WTC towers if they stood today. Anyway, it's a gorgeous tower.

Hospitality mogul Sam Nazarian taking a bite out of Manhattan West

Quote:
Manhattan’s Far West Side is about to get some serious foodie street cred.

Hospitality mogul Sam Nazarian is in talks to open a large space at Manhattan West as his SBE Entertainment Group embarks on a global restaurant and hotel expansion, sources told The Real Deal.

SBE Entertainment plans to lease about 40,000 square feet at Brookfield Office Properties’ massive live-work-play complex. One source said Nazarian is planning some kind of culinary incubator to test different concepts for the company’s expansion plans.

[...]

Umami is reportedly eyeing a Big Apple comeback, however, with a new concept called Umami Prime set to open inside the Le Meridien hotel off Central Park in the spring.

Brookfield, meanwhile, signed the law firm Cravath Swaine & Moore earlier this month to roughly 480,000 square feet as the anchor tenant at Two Manhattan West — the second new office tower to be developed at the 5.4 million-square-foot campus.
