Another Relocation to the West Side by Massive Accounting Firm
It was recently announced that account giant, EY, has just locked up a 600,000 square foot lease at Brookfield‘s 1 Manhattan West for its new U.S. headquarters. They will occupy the 6th – 22nd floors of the 67-story, 2.1 million square foot office tower, which is slated for completion in early 2019. The building is located near the corner of Ninth Avenue and West 33rd Street, which is a stone’s throw away from Hudson Yards. Tenants throughout Manhattan continue to respond to the new wave of construction. EY’s lease will run through May of 2037 and they will move in some time in 2019. EY currently occupies 1 million square feet at 5 Times Square with a lease through 2022, however, they are not sure if they will entirely vacate their footprint there. In addition to the 600,000 square feet in NYC, EY will be opening a 170,000 square foot office in Hoboken, NJ later this year. These leases are anticipated to create up to 1,152 jobs over the next 7 years. EY will be joining law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, consulting firm Accenture, and the NHL at 1 Manhattan West.
