Law Firm Crowell & Moring Leases 71K SF at 2 Manhattan West

International law firm Crowell & Moring LLP will move its New York City office to Brookfield Properties’ Two Manhattan West. The firm will occupy approximately 71,000 square feet on two floors of the 58-story office tower, now 76% leased ahead of its scheduled completion in spring 2023.  

“The strong leasing momentum we have seen at Manhattan West, and across our New York portfolio broadly,  is a clear testament to the top-tier quality, locations and amenities of our buildings which offer world-class  office environments for our tenants,” said Duncan McCuaig, EVP, leasing, Brookfield Properties. 

Crowell & Moring was represented by a JLL team consisting of Michael Berg, Barbara Winter and Thomas  Doughty. Brookfield Properties was represented in-house by McCuaig, Hayley Shoener and PJ  Massey, and by Cushman & Wakefield’s Bruce Mosler, Robert Lowe, Josh Kuriloff, Ethan Silverstein, Matthias Li and Nicholas  Dysenchuk.
