The Department of Buildings has processed plans for Two Manhattan West, a 59-story office tower measuring just shy of 1.75 million square feet. The tower will rise at 401 West 31st Street at the corner of Ninth Avenue and will stand 849 feet, per plans on file with the city. Those stats mean the building will be taller than Manhattan West’s completed rental The Eugene but shorter than its centerpiece office building at One Manhattan West.
Manhattan West’s official website recounts the building’s stats a bit differently, saying it will stand 56 floors, 935 feet, and cover 1.9 million square feet. Curbed has reached out to the develop for clarification.
Skidmore Owings & Merrill are listed as the Architect of Record for the project. Sorry, there’s no new skyline icon here: renderings for the tower show that it will mimic One Manhattan West, also designed by SOM, in its look. The building will seek LEED Gold certification, and is expected to be complete in 2022.
Two Manhattan West is one of the last in the five-building, eight-acre Manhattan West master plan to move forward. With One Manhattan West well underway, Three Manhattan West wrapped up in The Eugene, and Five Manhattan West now complete, it’s just Two Manhattan West, the 13-story boutique office building that will be known as The Lofts, and a small hotel that are left to round out the site.
