Manhattan West is a 5.4-million-square-foot (500,000 m2) mixed-use development by Brookfield Properties, being built as part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment. The project consists of two large office towers and two smaller residential towers, as well as a 1.5-acre (0.6-hectare) public park. The towers are being built on a platform over Penn Station storage tracks along Ninth Avenue. The buildings are close to the Hudson Yards mega-development to the west across Tenth Avenue. Upon its completion, the taller west tower will extend 995 feet (303 m) up to its roof and will be one of the tallest buildings in New York City.
Ground was broken for the site in January 2013. In May 2014, permits for complex were submitted and approved. Under the updated 2014 plan, the complex is set to be completed by 2020. By the end of 2014, a $680 million platform over Long Island Rail Road tracks between Tenth and Dyer Avenues, atop which the Manhattan West development would be built, was completed.
