Located between Ninth and Tenth avenues stands Manhattan West, New York City’s latest mega-lifestyle complex which has recently opened all five million of its square footage to the public.
The mixed-use development project from Brookfield Properties is close to four decades in the making and is comprised of six buildings; four office buildings, a residential tower, and a boutique hotel.
The ‘superblock’ that is Manhattan West occupies 214,000 square feet, stretching from West 31st and West 33rd Streets and adds another eye-watering skyscraper to the city skyline with One Manhattan West standing at 995 feet tall.
According to Brookfield Properties, Manhattan West will have transformed a ‘blighted, underutilized area into a dynamic urban neighborhood, while creating significant value for investors’ upon its completion.
In addition to a range of upmarket restaurants and retailers and no shortage of office space, Manhattan West offers luxury apartments within its residential complex, The Eugene.
Defined by an ‘urban-chic aesthetic’, The Eugene offers studio and corner apartments which are currently available to rent from US$4,390 per month or approximately A$5,848 per month.
As for amenities, The Eugene provides residents with everything you could need to lead a luxurious inner-city lifestyle: a piano and poker lounge, billiards room, wellness center, rock climbing wall, golf simulator, rooftop terrace and library room.
Manhattan West is also home to a new luxury boutique hotel called The Pendry. Behind an undulating glass, the facade is The Pendry’s sleek modern guest rooms and suites and four contemporary hospitality offerings, including an intimate bar, Eastern Mediterranean restaurant and an exclusive rooftop whiskey bar.
Offering a ‘relaxed version of New York’, a stay in The Pendry’s luxurious Deluxe City King room starts from US$845 per night (A$1,125/night). The Pendry Suite which features a living room with piano, fireplace, dining area, and panoramic views of the city skyline is priced at US$10,000 a night (A$13,290/night).
Citrovia and Surrounds
Covering 30,000 square feet, Manhattan West’s public art installation aptly named ‘Citrovia’ is Brookfield’s Instagram-worthy solution to the unsightly construction shed built for its incomplete second skyscraper, Two Manhattan West.
Filled with some 700 handmade plaster lemons, the fantastical lemon grove is blanketed with a cloud-inspired installation and features 18-foot tall lemon trees within its grove.
Either side of Citrovia sits Manhattan West’s string of sophisticated hospitality venues including Mediterannean restaurant Zou Zou’s and fine Italian dining spot, Ci Siamo. Contemporary variety theatre, Midnight Theatre, which is due to open before winter, is situated behind One Manhattan West.
Cited as one of Brookfield’s most ambitious large-scale projects, Manhattan West is reportedly valued at US$8.6 billion (A$11.4 billion). After investing close to US$5 billion (A$6.6 billion), the incomplete mega-complex is already proving to serve its purpose as a bustling luxury lifestyle complex. Once complete, Manhattan West will become its very own city within a city.
