After several delays, the newest neighborhood in Manhattan finally opened. It is a mix of both residential and commercial units extending across the west side of the borough. It has both office and retail spaces with many hospitality establishments. For residents, spaces open to public are designed to be dynamic and to use every inch of underutilized space. There is also a plaza in the center of the neighborhood which will provide a space for gatherings and social events.

Key Takeaways:

  • A new development, specifically a mixed-use neighborhood was unveiled recently by Brookfield Properties and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
  • The development ensures lots of shopping opportunities, with no less than 200,000 square feet of dedicated retail space.
  • In all, Manhattan West will afford users several million square feet of office, retail, residential and hospitality space.
