Manhattan West: Southeast Tower (Two Manhattan West)

Manhattan West, created by Brookfield Properties, will be a thriving community made up of custom designed office spaces, retail, pop-up experiences, abundant green space, homes and a boutique hotel.

Two Manhattan West will be a 63-storey office tower that can accommodate multiple lobbies, 50,000 SF podium floor plates, a black car drop-off and robust infrastructure. This is the second tower in the Manhattan West development that Walters has been contracted by Brookfield; the Northeast Tower (One Manhattan West) being the first tower.

As with the previous tower, Walters Group is deploying the Self Climbing Cocoon for this project. This 700 ft unit attaches to the perimeter providing a safe enclosure for our site teams and the public below. As erection progresses, the cocoon effortlessly climbs up the perimeter. This effortless motion requires much effort behind the scenes to ensure that all loads imposed are resolved through the complex network of steel.

Facts & Figures
  • 63 storey skyscraper with a gradually sloping northern face, stands at 902ft tall
  • Although shorter than One Manhattan West by 93ft, Two Manhattan West is almost three times heavier (55,000 Tons) having a steel core, as opposed to a concrete core.
  • Constrained by the 13 train tracks below, the structural configuration has been optimized to support over 1.5 Million SF of office space.
Our Role

Walters Inc., Metropolitan Walters and our Project Partners, Corey Estructuras, are responsible for the supply and installation of all structural steel & metal deck for the project. Working closely with AECOM Tishman and Brookfield Properties, steel is scheduled to top out in the Fall of 2021.
