Note the Eugene to the left of 1 MW. Thus, in sum, we can say this approximately (rounded) 70% of the total tower height (core that is). Based on that, I'd approximate the floor plates are up to the 30% mark give or take +2%.

The Coach Tower was once the dominant tower on the west side, but now it's just part of the pack. And things will change even more dramatically.

EY signs for extra space in One Manhattan West

By Steve Cuozzo
January 2, 2018


Quote:
EY is taking a bigger slice of One Manhattan West — the latest advance for Brookfield Property Partners’ seven-acre rail yard site that’s the city’s least-known, $5 billion mega-project.

The accounting giant formerly known as Ernst & Young quietly signed for an additional 71,000 square feet just before the holidays, bringing its total commitment in the rising 67-story tower to 675,000 square feet.

One Manhattan West is to open in late 2019 or early 2020. It’s the first of two office skyscrapers planned at Brookfield’s complex atop the rail yard bounded by Ninth and Tenth avenues and West 31st and 33rd streets.

Although Manhattan West isn’t exactly a secret, its public image is somewhat eclipsed by Related Cos.’ much larger, 26-acre Hudson Yards site to the west, where one tall office tower has already opened; and by the emotionally laden, 16-acre World Trade Center complex downtown.

It’s also hard to see what’s going on behind the fences, which are sandwiched between the former Farley Post Office building to the east and the façade of what will be Neiman Marcus at Related’s project to the west. But Manhattan West’s public profile has begun to rise with the completion of the 62-story apartment tower known as the Eugene and the start of work on the first office tower.

The Brookfield complex belongs to the city-designated Hudson Yards District, which includes both the sprawling Related and Brookfield sites as well as smaller ones owned by Tishman Speyer and Moinian Group.

Manhattan West will stand closest to Midtown’s heart. Its Ninth Avenue frontage is right across from the new, $1.6 billion train hall now under construction at Moynihan Station inside the former Farley Post Office building. The restaurant- and retail-filled hall, modeled on the original Penn Station, is to provide a more pleasant experience for riders of subways, the LIRR and New Jersey Transit.

“It’s happening literally across the street,” enthused Brookfield Property Partners chief executive Ric Clark. “It’s going to be beautiful and practically at our doorstep.”

Clark has more to cheer about. According to Brookfield’s data, Manhattan West’s total 2017 leasing volume of 1.77 million square feet accounted for 56.5 percent of the entire Hudson Yards District’s total 3.13 million square feet of office signings for the year. This despite Manhattan West’s 5.9 million square feet representing only 29.8 percent of the district’s total 19.8 million square feet.

The Manhattan West deals didn’t come cheaply to tenants. The complex accounted for four of 2017’s 10 priciest, long-term office leases, the Real Deal reported — including EY’s $654.14 million deal at One Manhattan West before the additional 71,000 square feet, and Amazon’s $428.86 million lease at 5 Manhattan West. Starting rents were in the $80s and low $90s per square foot, the Real Deal reported.

At One Manhattan West, which has begun to rise at the corner of Ninth Avenue and West 33rd Street, all but 300,000 of 2.1 million square feet are pre-leased. Tenants include EY, the National Hockey League, two major law firms (Skadden Arps and McKool Smith) and Accenture.

Meanwhile, Amazon’s recent deal for 360,000 square feet at Five Manhattan West — the glass-wrapped reinvention of what Clark calls “the ugliest building in Manhattan” — has brought the once-unsightly property to 99 percent occupancy,
including 60,000-square-foot retail tenant Whole Foods.

Brookfield also recently filed Buildings Department plans for Two Manhattan West, a 62-story tower at Ninth Avenue and West 31st Street. Clark said, “There’s lots of tenant activity although we’re nowhere near announcing anything, but we hope to in 2018.” Clark said the tower should be open in 2022.

Another recent lease by creative-workspace firm Spaces filled slightly more than half of a third new office building at the complex, the 202,000-square-foot Lofts at 424-434 W. 34th St.

At another site component is the 62-story rental apartment tower known as the Eugene, “We’ve had phenomenal progress,” Clark said. “We underwrote a year-to-two-year lease-up. We opened the doors in April and it’s already 65 percent leased.”

A central, two-acre plaza is coming soon with 200,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, which JLL is helping to market. Work will also start this year on a 30-story, 150-room hotel topped with 45 luxury condos.

The Qatar Investment Authority is Brookfield’s 44 percent partner in the project.

Wolffkran tower cranes hard at work in NYC




The Wolff tower cranes bring up bundles of steel from the ground level to be landed on the working floor, and from there the erector will shake out the bundled steel and begin to put it into place.


By Hannah Sundermeyer
4 January 2018


Quote:
When you think of the Big Apple, the first things that come to mind are the electric lights of Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and the constant hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps. Not to mention the elaborate skyline filled with skyscrapers and, more often than not, cranes.

Two Wolffkran tower cranes are now in the air in Manhattan where they are assisting in the addition of another building on the city’s skyline. Manhattan West is among the latest up-and-coming neighborhoods in New York City, and a set of Wolffkran cranes are hard at work on a building that will eventually serve as one of the tallest in the city clocking in at 67 stories.

The building being erected is One Manhattan West, which is part of the Manhattan West Project that will consist of four high-rise towers, a large technology center and two acres of an open space park. According to the project website, at more than 7 million square feet, Manhattan West will be a community made up of custom-designed office spaces, curated food, retail, pop-up experiences, abundant green space, homes and a boutique hotel.

Both Wolff units were contracted to the steel erector by Federated Crane to erect the exterior steel structure of the building. The steel will surround the building’s concrete core.

Heavy lifters

Federated Crane provided a Wolff 355B, with a maximum lift rating of 61,730 pounds and equipped with 164 feet of luffing jib, on the south side of the building using an internal jacking system. On the north side of the building a Wolff 700B is situated, with a maximum lift rating of 110,230 pounds also equipped with 164 feet of luffing jib using an external jacking system.

The 355B on the south side is rising with the Wolff internal climbing system which minimizes the necessary amount of tower needed to scale a 1,000-foot building. The internal climbing system being used with the 355B will permit the crane to reach its final height of roughly 1,000 feet by using only 120 feet of tower. The 700B, which is using the external climbing system, is mounted on a foundation at ground level and will feed itself with the necessary number of tower sections throughout the project to achieve its final height for the completion for the steel erection.

“The safety, reliability and quality of our machines, combined with functionality of our external and internal climbing systems make these machines an excellent choice for the project,” said a spokesperson for Federated Crane. “We also attributed the compact size of the machines with their minimal tail-swing, as well as the cranes being electric powered as factors which will hopefully prove beneficial to the project.”

Bring the steel

On this type of building with a steel surround and a concrete core, the steel erector is handling steel beams, columns, decking and other miscellaneous materials needed for the completion of the steel erection process. Typically, on a tier building such as this, the cranes will bring up bundles of steel from the ground level to be landed on the working floor, and from there the erector will shake out the bundled steel and begin to erect each piece as called for. The company said that although this may sound like an over-simplification of the process, it is repeated over and over until the building is complete. This repetition of hoisting, swinging and climbing to keep a job of this magnitude on schedule is certainly a grueling process. The company said the reliability and performance of the Wolff cranes are proving to be an excellent combination toward the success of the complex, intricate project.

“As in any big city, the problem of congestion leaves no room for a lay down area to store the building materials on site,” said the Federated Crane spokesperson. “So, the logistics of delivering all the steel by truck to the crane’s hook and placed up on the building make it critical that the cranes are performing as expected.

Active jobsite

According to the company, although Wolffkran luffing tower cranes are relatively new to the U.S. market, they are quickly recognized for their performance and reliability. They have begun popping up on a variety of metropolitan construction sites.

It is also important to note that New York City often proves to be a challenging city for construction as spaces are tight, streets are active 24-hours a day and the construction regulations are strict. However, according to Federated Crane, their involvement and knowledge of the local logistical and bureaucratic issues of a large city such as NYC will be extremely beneficial to the success of the crane usage.

Both cranes are estimated to remain on location for a little over a year, as the development is set to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2019. Once completed, the 2-million square foot building will house Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP, McKool Smith and the new headquarters for the NHL.



The 355B on the south side is rising with the Wolff internal climbing system which minimizes the necessary amount of tower needed to scale a 1,000-foot building. The Wolf 700B, is mounted on a foundation at ground level and will feed itself with the necessary number of tower sections.

I'd say officially taller than 3 Manhattan West...

This picture reminds me of the old photos of Rockefeller center during its initial rise.

The core must be at about 850' by now judging from its proximity to 10 HY.

In that Top of the Rock photo, it's not quite past 55 Hudson, which is 780 ft. But it 's in a hard race with 35 Hudson to become Hudson Yard's second supertall.
