BBVA To Relocate NYC Headquarters to Hudson Yards 

Brookfield Properties announced BBVA’s relocation of its NYC headquarters to Two Manhattan West, the final addition to the Manhattan West development. BBVA will occupy around 74,000 square feet across floors 8-9 in the 58-story tower, planning to move by late 2024.  

With this, Two Manhattan West surpasses 80% occupancy, joining other major tenants like KPMG, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, Clifford Chance, and the D.E. Shaw Group. The skyscraper, boasting LEED-Gold certification, offers various amenities, ties to transit hubs, and sustainable features, notably sourcing all electricity from renewable sources by utilizing run-of-river hydropower facilities. 

“This is one more step in our growth plans in the US, as well as in our commitment to sustainability, by choosing a building powered by renewable energy,” said Regina Gil, Head of BBVA CIB in the U.S. Brookfield Properties was represented by in-house team Duncan McCuaig, Mikael Nahmias, Dave Caperna, and Dan Roberts.
