Manhattan West, NYC’s new luxury playground, finally opens



Decades in the making, the last piece of New York’s far west side is finally here. Manhattan West, Brookfield’s sprawling, 8-acre, city-
within-a-city between Ninth and Tenth avenues and West 30th and 33rd streets, officially opened late last month with luxe amenities, eateries, public art and 2.5 acres of open space.

The only residential slice of the development built by Brookfield itself is The Eugene at West 31st Street. The 62-story all-glass tower opened in 2017, ahead of the rest of the project, with 844 rental units. A few remain available, ranging from a $3,940/month studio to a three-bedroom, two-bath asking $12,325/month. Building perks include a wellness center, a rock climbing wall, a basketball court, an arcade, weekly classes and pet grooming.

Outside of Manhattan West, but adjacent to all the fun, the aptly named The West, at 47th and 11th Avenue, launched last year and will soon open. Created by development partnership CBSK Ironstate and designed by the renowned Dutch firm Concrete, the 12-story, 222-unit condo boasts its own party haven: the rooftop Tar Beach Pool Club, where residents can swim or chill in private cabanas. Penthouse 8 at the building — a two-bed, two-bath — is currently on the market for $2.74 million. The corner spread features floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a terrace off the primary bedroom suite.

But high rollers need only look as far as Hudson Yards, which blends seamlessly into Manhattan West. Penthouse 90 at 35 Hudson Yards is currently listed for $54.5 million — $4.5 million less than when it hit the market in April. Weighing in at an incredible 10,171 square feet, with five bedrooms and six full bathrooms, it takes a more-is-more approach to luxury. Think: French oak floors, a 1,000-square-foot great room, 14-foot ceilings, sprawling terraces, a library, private gym and media room.

Go West, indeed.
