AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today that its Tishman Construction unit is managing construction of Brookfield’s One Manhattan West in New York City.
Tishman has been selected to serve as the preconstruction and construction manager of the 71-story, 2.1-million-gross-square-foot office building with a total cost of US$2.1 billion. The project was previously included in AECOM's reported backlog.
“We are proud to help create an iconic tower that will be a key part of making the Far West Side the city’s newest vibrant neighborhood,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. “Brookfield’s Manhattan West is a transformative mixed-use project that will bring much-needed residential and office space to New York City – and we are excited to play a role in making it a reality.”
One Manhattan West will anchor the Northeastern corner of Brookfield’s 7-million-square-foot Manhattan West development that is being constructed around a 2-acre tree-lined park being developed atop the rail lines that lead to Pennsylvania Station. The tower has been designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, and is aiming for LEED-Gold certification. Law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP is the anchor tenant, having signed a 20-year, 550,000-square-foot lease at the tower.
One Manhattan West will be a key component of the new mixed-use development. When complete, the development will include two new class A office towers, the rechristened Five Manhattan West office building (formerly 450 West 33rd Street), retail space, rooftop gardens, cafes and a luxury residential building. AECOM’s Tishman Construction is also providing construction management services for the repositioning of Five Manhattan West and the fit-out of several floors for the building’s new tenants.
