Brookfield’s Manhattan West complex now includes a new Whole Foods Market within Five Manhattan West. The store occupies 60,245 square feet of the lower level of the building, which is located at 450 West 33rd Street in Hudson Yards.
Whole Foods Market’s Manhattan West store is the retailer’s 14th physical location in New York City. Shoppers can now enter the store on Ninth Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets, as well as a corner entrance at Tenth Avenue and 31st Street.
Designed by Davis Brody Bond, Five Manhattan West stands 15 stories tall and primarily functions as an office building. The entire structure spans just under 1.8 million square feet including about 27,000 square feet of on-site parking. The building debuted in 1969 with a brutalist concrete façade, but extensive renovations in 2014 replaced the curtain wall with one composed primarily of glass, giving it cohesion with the other structures of Manhattan West and nearby Hudson Yards.
In addition to Whole Foods, Manhattan West will feature an array of culinary and retail experiences across 200,000 square feet, including a multi-concept restaurant by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group. Additional dining areas powered by C3, a hospitality subsidiary of Simon Property Group, will debut as “Citizens” and include a curated collection of culinary brands, multiple bars, and a fast-casual market hall.
The most recent building to go vertical within the complex is Two Manhattan West, which is located between Ninth Avenue and Tenth Avenue along West 31st Street. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the 935-foot-tall skyscraper is located directly to the south of the completed One Manhattan West. The structure will top out at 58 floors and yield 2 million square feet of Class A office space.
