Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has released the plans for Manhattan West, a new office and residential development spanning five million square feet over the 2.6-acre platform that covers the active rail tracks connecting Penn Station to New Jersey and Upstate New York.
The project, situated on the Far West Side of Manhattan, will include two, two-million-square-foot office towers, a residential tower with 844 units, 225,000 square feet of retail and dining amenities, and two acres of open public space.
“The master plan for these two full city blocks [bound by Ninth and Tenth Avenues, as well as West 31st and West 33rd Streets,] is organized round a series of distinct public open spaces. These will provide unique areas for repose and contribute to the dynamic pedestrian streetscape, connecting Moynihan Station to the far West Side of Manhattan by means of a walkable West 32nd Street extension.”
The office towers in the master plan are targeting LEED Gold certification. Learn more about the project here.
