Event Details

The renovation of this one-million-square-foot Brutalist building repositions it within its new urban context—it is neighbor to the High Line, Manhattan West, and Hudson Yards—to Class A status by upgrading its public spaces, bringing daylight deep into the massive floorplates, transparency to its street presence, and improving its energy performance. The adaptive reuse of Five Manhattan West stands to prove the plausibility of creating contemporary, competitive office stock from structures that might normally be considered for demolition.

Original Architect: Davis Brody Bond, 1969
Renovation Architect: REX, 2016
