Also, Manhattan West is assessible by 7 subway lines, A,C,E,1,2,3 & 9 are all within two blocks. New Jersey commuters also have the PATH stopping at 32/6th.

I see Manhattan West as convient, if not more convient then the Hudson Yards buildings.

BTW-Robert..I followed your post for a while back at SSP...enjoyed your insight...not sure what happened, but it's good to see posting here.
Yes, as I said, this is my view also. However, it depends on where the majority of the companies employees are located I suppose.

How far from the Hudson Yards site is this? Together with this and the other propsed tower a bit further north NY seems to be set to get quite a tall West Side!

A company is not going to lease space based upon whether its employees' commute is five minutes more or less at one site or another. The cost and the quality of the space are the key issues.

I've been saying for years that Brookfield can't compete with Related or 3WTC's first 1m sf on pricing and that the foregoing space would fill first.

Once that's gone, Brookfield faces competition from scores of better properties such as 1 Vanderbilt, 15 Penn, etc.

Machinery was moving around and making plenty of noise at 9 PM from digging and drilling.

It looks like there are tracks that appear to go over the cliff edge and down a ramp to the track level. Perhaps prep work for the platform?

the work you see in the pictures is of the south side of the project.

the slope you see in the grade is the excavation of dirt and rock. the work at the street level is separated from the track by a hoarding wall.

this is where the south capping beam will sit, the foundation for the precast.

the work going on at night is track work, done during track outages per the project schedule with AMTRAK/LIRR

NoChe:
The Next Big Thing


You've heard of NoMad, NoLita, and NoHo. Well, get used to "NoChe." It stands for North Chelsea, pronounced a touch exotically like the Spanish word for "night." It's how insiders are referring to the dramatic new area being forged by Brookfield and Related on the Far West Side.


We snapped the sign at Ninth and 33rd referring to Brookfield's five acres, where shovels started turning in October to create 5.4M SF by 2016: two 62-story, 2M SF office towers; a residential behemoth with 900 apartments and condos; 40k SF of retail; and 1.5 acres of public space, including a broad pedestrian walkway down the middle to be christened as a new 32nd Street. In January, Brookfield locked down a $340M loan (from Wells Fargo, Bank of NY, HSBC, US Bank, Toronto Dominion, and Scotia) to match its own $340M in equity, covering $285M to build the platform, existing investment, and land acquisition, bringing project funding current....



Brookfield development chief Phil Wharton, right, and project construction director Henry Caso tell us the new towers will feature 30k-45k SF floor plates, much larger than the Empire State Building's in the background. Phil arrived at Brookfield recently with decades of experience at Lincoln Property and AvalonBay in New York, and Henry was practically born into the development industry, coming from a family of architects. The district has been up-zoned from industrial to high density mixed-use and is the only place where Manhattan can grow today on a large scale. Turner is constructing the platform, but building contractors haven't been chosen yet since SOM is still designing....

Let's see what SOM comes up with. Whatever it is clearly will change over time because no tenant is likely to anchor these towers any time soon.

That is a great spot to often take pics from, you work in the YMCA Building? Look at those workers between the tracks.
