In the shadow of rising 30 Hudson Yards, work is moving right along in the new neighborhood's mini-megaproject Manhattan West. The Brookfield Properties-developed project bounded by 32nd and 33rd streets and Ninth and Tenth avenues will include three new buildings that will rise on top of a track-eclipsing platform as well as the newly revamped 1969 office building at 450 West 33rd Street. Field Condition visited the site to find that the project's residential tower at 401 West 31st Street is rising. As of now, the SOM-designed building stands two stories above ground but when complete, it'll reach 702 feet and have 790 apartments. As part of the aging office building's revamp, architecture firm REX is swapping out the precast concrete panel facade with an airier glass facade.
