This tower won't even be visible from that angle, at least limit your spamming to threads where it vaguely applies.

Confucius say: "being annoyed, is all in ones head... Ommmmmm" does anyone know if they are extending the platform over the tracks to the south?

I don't believe so, as one of the towers should fill that entire space.

Oh ok. I just noticed that the tracks to the right have been covered with debris for some time. Have they fallen into disuse?

No, this rail yard is at full capacity. Most of the Penn Station traffic has to be routed through the Sunnyside rail yards in Queens (which may soon be platformed too).

I can understand 995 ft for the first one built(the one with the Skadden commitment) but I hope the other will be more like 1,200 ft as originally intended.

the towers have been reported and rendered at about the same height for awhile now. The 1200 ft figure is mostly clung-to hype that has stuck around since the announcement of the project.

Twin supertalls would be fine by me, but they gotta break 1000 if the design ends up being as simple as it appears now. Otherwise the platform construction will remain the most interesting part of this development.

Not surprising given the weak office leasing environment. Not the time to aggressively build more space than the market will absorb.

Great shot of the finished platform posted on the Manhattan West Facebook page today.

Nice. They are almost done! They pretty much just have to cover Dwyer Ave now.

Thanks - neat photo. Not much easily visible evidence of the 450 W 33rd street reclad, though.

It makes me wonder when (years?) they will be installing the fan/ventilation equipment at the MW site. I'm assuming w/o that equipment in place the platform levels of Penn Station will get even MORE unpleasant in the summertime...

The MW office towers will also impact the view artboy11211 captured looking east from the "penthouse" of 450 W 33rd a few weeks ago:

New York Office Towers Pop Up Despite Sluggish Market
By Eliot Brown
Nov. 25, 2014 2:32 p.m. ET

Quote:
NEW YORK—Real-estate developers are piling into the nation’s largest office market at the fastest rate in at least two decades despite sluggish demand for space, a gamble that tenants will favor gleaming new skyscrapers over the hundreds already dotting the New York skyline.
Landlords including Related Cos., World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein and Brookfield Property Partners LP are pushing ahead with big projects
[...]
The potential gap between supply and demand raises concerns about overbuilding, analysts said. Few believe the market will be overwhelmed by a glut of space. But if the economy sours and job growth dries up, the developers and their investors could be forced to cut asking rents or be left with mostly empty buildings.
[...]
tenants often prefer newer office buildings to old, so even if the economy slows, there are plenty of employers to lure from the half-century old skyscrapers that fill Midtown Manhattan. While a recession would be problematic, “if we have normal and slow growth, [builders will] be fine,” said Mr. Page of CoStar.
[...]
Brookfield, one of the country’s largest office-space owners, is planning a 2 million-square-foot tower west of Pennsylvania Station. The company, which also is publicly listed, signed a term sheet with law firm Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP last month for a chunk of the tower. If the deal is completed, Brookfield will likely move ahead with the building.
[...]

Is it really a sluggish market though? Occupancy growth has been strong and overall vacancy is in the single digits. The big gain for developers is that NYC's office inventory is pretty old and new product is largely concentrated in WTC, Hudson Yards and some mega projects, but those make up only a fractional amount of space in Manhattan. The question, however, is how much space financial and legal services firms will continue to give back as they rightsize, which could potentially push up vacancy in higher-priced buildings that they prefer as well as what will happen when many of these tenants move from the core to newer product (1WTC, 10 Hudson Yards et al).

What’s the Deal: News Digest
A Roundup of Commercial Property News From Across the Tri-State Region
Wall Street Journal
Nov. 30, 2014 8:46 p.m. ET


Brookfield Office Properties

Quote:
J.P. Morgan Goes West

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. may have scrapped plans to build a new headquarters on Manhattan’s far West Side, but the bank still will have a presence in the neighborhood with its digital group.

It signed a 10-year lease deal for about 123,000 square feet on the ninth floor of 450 W. 33rd St., a 16-story building that is part of Brookfield Property Partners LP’s planned Manhattan West development, said Jeremiah Larkin, Brookfield executive vice president and director of leasing for New York and Boston. The bank plans to consolidate its digital teams in the tri-state area into this location and use the new office as a recruiting tool, according to a person familiar with the deal. The neighborhood is viewed as an emerging tech corridor, this person said.

Brookfield is spending about $200 million to make over the 1.7 million-square-foot tower with a new pleated-glass exterior, interior renovations and new mechanical systems.

For Brookfield, the lease is another step toward realizing the rest of its Manhattan West project, which includes the construction of two office towers, a residential high-rise building and a hotel. In November, the company completed the construction of a platform above the West Side rail yards. And in October, law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP signed a letter of intent to move to one of the planned office towers.

Earlier this fall, J.P. Morgan opted against moving its headquarters to Hudson Yards, another West Side project that Related Cos. is developing.

Still, the neighborhood has begun to take shape as Brookfield’s development and other far West Side project progress, said Mr. Larkin. “They recognized what the neighborhood is and that it’s happening,” Mr. Larkin said.
