The official Manhattan West website says that this building will be 935ft.
Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill LLP will be designing the building, and it will have a total construction area measuring just shy of 1.75 million square feet. Within that, the entirety of the usable 1,693,220 square feet will be for commercial use. The tower will rise 59 floors and 849 feet to its rooftop, a considerable drop from the original estimates of over 1,000 feet, and approximately 70 floors.
There may still be a rooftop element that adds a few dozen feet to the parapet, but this will no longer be an actual supertall, falling short of the 300-meter (984-foot) threshold.
The filings are the first sign that Brookfield is moving forward with its second office tower. Leasing activity has been very strong for 1 Manhattan West, with Ernst & Young recently taking 600,000 square feet, and between the new building and what’s left at 401 Ninth Avenue, about two million square feet remains available.
No completion date has been announced yet... 2 Manhattan West is the last major piece of the puzzle before the site begins to approach finality.
DOB filings don't often indicate the total height. The initial filings, as earlier posted, reported a height of 849'. The official web page of Manhattan West and the CTBUH list the height at 935', so that figure is the most substantiated.Soon enough.
Also at SSP it was leaked that a new DOB was filed stating 902' (275m) and 60 floors.
I know but I think this was more recent than the 849' figure. Also DOB's are just to the roof of the building, not counting parapets etc., correct? Or at least sometimes they are.DOB filings don't often indicate the total height. The initial filings, as earlier posted, reported a height of 849'.

Brookfield Properties is planning a $2 billion office tower in Hudson Yards without the requisite lease commitment from an office tenant.
The $7.2 billion public company and its financial partner in the development, the Qatari Investment Authority, are moving forward with 2 Manhattan West, a 62-story, 1.95 million square-foot glass tower designed by the architecture firm SOM, on speculation. The developer is betting that tenants will lease up a substantial portion—or all—of the spire before it is complete in 2022.
I honestly think it's a safe bet. Class A office space in the Hudson Yards area is THE premiere choice for corporations around the world who are looking for new headquarters. Now that Related's office component is almost done and Pfizer has leased basically the entirety of the upcoming Spire building, this will be one of the few available towers left for ambitious tenants. At this point it'll basically be 2 WTC, the rest of 3 WTC, 50 HY and 3 Hudson Boulevard for competition in the Manhattan market; I think there are enough financial/pharma/media/internet companies out there to fill 'em all out :cheers:I hope this will halt construction over at 3 Hudson Boulevard and force them to rethink the redesign. Brookfield has been far more successful at baiting tenants.
Brookfield to build West Side tower without committed tenant
The tech giant has been in talks with owners of two shiny new skyscrapers located just one block west of Penn Station — the newly built One Manhattan West and its soon-to-be sister project, Two Manhattan West, sources tell The Post.
The online retailer is seeking “at least 100,000 square feet or much more” — just to start, one well-placed source said.
Amazon, which already has 5,000 workers in NYC, had been “seriously” looking at Two Manhattan West prior to choosing Long Island City in November, a second source said. “That interest has returned over the last few weeks,” the source added.
At Two Manhattan West, Amazon is eyeing space at the top of the tower, sources said. The only issue is that the building, to be located on 31st Street and 9th Avenue, won’t be ready for tenants until 2022.
One Manhattan West, by contrast, will be ready for tenants to move in this fall, including a 250,000-square-foot space in the middle of the 67-story tower. The 250,000-square-foot space won’t be available long-term, but could satisfy Amazon’s space needs until Two Manhattan is ready, sources said.
Amazon also is considering space in the US Post Office building across the street, known as the James A. Farley building — a Vornado development that will boast office space across five levels and will be ready for tenants next May, sources said
As Amazon eyes of Brookfield Property Partner’s Two Manhattan West, another tenant has swooped in to take 350,000 square feet at the building.
Cravath Swaine & Moore signed a term sheet with the landlord last month, and agreed this week on the deal at the almost 2 million-square-foot building, according to the New York Post.
The developer is looking for a $1.4 billion construction loan to build Two Manhattan West.
After receiving interest from Amazon for a potential 100,000-square-foot space in the building, Brookfield is seeking nearly $80 million in real estate tax exemptions, The Real Deal reported Tuesday.
National law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP inked a deal to take 481,000 square feet at the forthcoming 58-story property rising on the Far West Side of Manhattan. The firm will be occupying 13 full floors in the building, which will serve as the national headquarters for Cravath once the firm moves into the property in 2024.
