Manhattan West’s soon-to-be tallest tower in the neighborhood, One Manhattan West, has made significant progress since we last checked in and New York YIMBY reports that steel construction on the 67-story building is now reaching the top floor.
The Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill-designed building is also in the process of installing the stone material that will decorate the lobby and several panels are already in place on the northern side of the tower. Facade installation still has a ways to go before it is complete.
The building will stand 995 feet tall once complete, and will offer 2.1 million square feet of office space. A few tenants have already signed on for space at One Manhattan West, including law firm Skadden Arps and accounting firm Ernst & Young, who committed to a lease for 600,000 square feet this year.
The building is expected to be complete sometime in 2019.
