Developer Brookfield Properties announced in April that it's finally planning to move forward with Manhattan West, the Hudson Yards-neighboring stretch between 31st and 33rd streets and Ninth and Dyer avenues. The first elements of the site: a deck over the rail yards, plus a two-million-square-foot SOM-designed office tower, with two more potential towers to come. Now we know all these plans are real?there's signage! A tipster passes along the above shots of signs that went up along two blocks of Ninth Avenue over the past few days. "It details 8 steps of constructing a platform over the rail yard as well as has illustrations of the new towers," explains our tipster. Details up to now have been sparse, so thanks for the cheat sheet, Brookfield!
