KPMG TO RELOCATE U.S. HEADQUARTERS TO INNOVATIVE SPACE IN NEW YORK CITY


Aug 23, 2022


Quote:
KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm, today announced plans to relocate its headquarters to Two Manhattan West, a new building in Midtown Manhattan's West Side of New York City.

When construction on KPMG's new space at Two Manhattan West – part of Brookfield Properties' Manhattan West neighborhood – is completed in late 2025, it will provide the firm's 5,500+ New York-based partners and professionals with an enhanced workplace experience through an innovative and sustainable design that fosters collaboration.
Quote:
”KPMG has been based in New York since our inception on August 2, 1897, and we are proud to show our continuing commitment to this great city with our exciting new headquarters in Two Manhattan West in the vibrant Manhattan West neighborhood," said Paul Knopp, KPMG U.S. Chair and CEO. "As we celebrate our 125th anniversary and think about our firm's future, this is an incredible opportunity to bring our people together in a custom-designed office space that will showcase our firm's commitment to culture, innovation, wellness and sustainability.

KPMG currently occupies space at 345 Park Avenue, its headquarters, as well as 560 Lexington Avenue and 1350 Sixth Avenue. KPMG will lease approximately 450,000 square feet in the new 58-story Two Manhattan West building. Two Manhattan West is connected to Moynihan Train Hall via a protected crosswalk and offers direct access to the High Line, the Shed, Madison Square Garden and Penn Station/Penn District. It is also close to Chelsea Piers and easily accessible to other parts of the city.

"Our new headquarters space will be designed for the evolving needs and expectations of our professionals and clients with a modern, efficient and flexible space that will drive connection, collaboration and innovation," said Yesenia Scheker Izquierdo, KPMG New York Office Managing Partner and Market Hub Leader. "This exciting new building is emblematic of our dedication to New York, and it embodies our New York spirit and the forward momentum of our people as we serve clients in the New York metro area well into the future."

"We are pleased to welcome KPMG to its new headquarters at Two Manhattan West," said Brian Kingston, CEO of Real Estate at Brookfield. "Manhattan West continues to attract leading companies making long-term commitments to New York City and seeking sustainable properties, access to transit and a variety of places to dine and shop."
Quote:
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Two Manhattan West is targeting LEED Gold designation and features energy-efficient design, optimization of electrical service performance, sustainable materials, maximization of natural light, stormwater harvesting and recycling and the latest in indoor air quality. The 58-story, 1.9 million square foot skyscraper is currently under construction and slated for completion in early 2023.

I had hoped that they’d anchor 350 Park. I guess there are plenty of other possible tenants for that.

I agree. They look even better in person.

For how much people disparage modern architecture for being just big boxes, these are big boxes done exceptionally well.

They’re not remotely boxes. They slope inward and have very rounded corners.

Wow. Nearly every tower that's prominently displayed in that last shot besides NYT and 1 MSG was not there a mere 7 years ago.

And in the next 10 years, even that's about to be dwarfed.

Yea, it sometimes feels like the US's skyscraper building days are coming to a halt but it also could be the nature of building cycles. Hopefully there will be another one in the next 5-10 years.

Dwarfing Hudson Yards would be quite a feat but hopefully someone will build a signature tower someday.

The US is in its best skyscraper days ever, and not just New York, even places you wouldn't think a decade ago, like Austin, are getting lots of new skyscraper developments.

And yes dwarfing Hudson Yards (or should I say phase 1 of HY) will be a feat, but it is in fact happening.
Penn Station Area
HY phase 2
PABT redevelopment
And many more towers not connected to those.
This will dwarf HY.

Related is trying for a casino, and as of current info still plans all the residential, schools, etc that they promised.

As for MSG, that's up to the Dolans.

This is true, US isn't doing that bad but it's frustrating when so many cool proposals never wind up getting built.

Not even just in NY but other US cities. They seem to bite off a lot more than they can chew.

NY, Austin and Miami are basically carrying the country skyscraper-wise. It'd be nice for a few others to join in and actually build their proposals.

If these all actually happen and stay at their proposed scale then sure...
