Brookfield’s One Manhattan West Turns to 100% Renewable Energy 

Brookfield Properties reached a five-year agreement with Brookfield Renewable to supply renewable electricity to One Manhattan West, its 2.1-million-square-foot office tower in the Manhattan West development. The deal is one of the largest intrastate renewable energy agreements for a single building in New York State 

The renewable energy will be supplied by Brookfield Renewable’s hydropower facilities located in upstate New York. The agreement makes One Manhattan West the first building within Brookfield Properties’ New York portfolio to meet all its electricity needs with renewable energy. 

“Our pledge to obtain 100% renewable electricity at One Manhattan West underscores our unwavering commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 across Brookfield’s portfolio,” said Callie Haines, head of New York at Brookfield Properties. “We are especially proud to source the renewable energy within New York, supporting the state’s goal of obtaining 70% of its electricity needs from renewable energy resources by 2030.”
