Just a month after Hudson Yards broke ground, another massive west side project is starting to take shape. Brookfield finally began construction on Manhattan West, 5.4 million-square-feet of offices, housing, and retail on Ninth Avenue between 33rd and 32nd Streets. Some new renderings are floating around, collected in the gallery above, giving us an updated look at the twin 60-story towers and 1.5 acre public plaza that will be sandwiched between them. But before any of that can be erected, a 2.6 acre platform has to be built over the rail yards, which is currently what's being built. The Observer reports that Brookfield still has to secure an anchor tenant before the towers can start rising.
