Five Manhattan West / REX

REX is pleased to present Brookfield?s newly transformed Five Manhattan West, a former Brutalist landmark straddling Penn Station?s rail yard in New York City. Located at 450 West 33rd St, the former warehouse was once a concrete fortress completely isolated from Manhattan?s west side. Brookfield invested $350 million to transform this late Brutalist building.
