The Pendry Manhattan West Hotel’s distinctive wavy curtain wall is reaching the upper floors of the topped-out structure at Four Manhattan West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the 21-story building is part of Midtown’s Manhattan West complex, which sits directly adjacent to Hudson Yards. The structure’s fluted glass façade on the northern and southern elevations will easily distinguish it from the other glass-clad towers in the Manhattan West complex. The Pendry will yield a total of 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on the upper floors.

Façade work is continuing on the forthcoming Canopy by Hilton hotel at 159 Morgan Street in Downtown Jersey City.

KABR Group is the developer of the property, which will be the first Canopy by Hilton location in New Jersey. Katerra is in charge of construction of the mixed-use building.
Developers are now pursuing a 6.6-million-square-foot expansion of Industry City that would introduce a vibrant mix of office space, retail, hospitality, manufacturing, academic, and community-oriented facilities. The expansion is described as an Innovation Economy District that will facilitate the creation of new employment opportunities and the commercialization of underutilized zoning lots.
