A New City Rises in Manhattan

Case Study
Minute Read
Manhattan West is one of Brookfield’s most ambitious large-scale development projects. The eight-acre, six-building mixed-use complex includes all the elements of our renowned placemaking destinations throughout the world, including our award-winning, year-round Arts Brookfield entertainment program. 

Located in New York City’s emerging Midtown West district in a “superblock” that stretches from 9th Avenue to 10th Avenue and from 31st to 33rd Streets, Manhattan West is a testament to the value of long-term thinking and the capabilities of an experienced, vertically integrated team.

Total Investment: $5 Billion

Total Space: 7 Million Sq. Ft.

Value Created: $8.6 Billion

When complete, Manhattan West will have transformed a blighted, underutilized area into a dynamic urban neighborhood, while creating significant value for investors. The site is a showcase for our placemaking ethos, with more than 7 million square feet of state-of-the-art office space, luxury apartments, a boutique hotel, carefully curated retail and restaurants, and two acres of thoughtfully designed open space. 

The development has drawn major corporate tenants away from other parts of Manhattan, following the recent migration trend to the south and west of the city as companies seek a more modern, 21st century approach to amenities and live/work spaces. Today, more than 1.8 million square feet of office space is occupied by quality tenants, including Amazon and R/GA, as well as new technology and FinTech companies.

Beyond its positive aesthetic and economic impact on the area, Manhattan West is a model of sustainable development and renewable technologies in action. We expect LEED certification for enhanced energy efficiency, indoor air quality, high-performance glazing and other innovative green building technologies. 

Above all, Manhattan West reflects a superior approach to value creation. After our substantial investment of nearly $5 billion to build and develop, when fully leased the project is expected to be valued at approximately $8.6 billion.
