EY Announces New Lease for 600,000 square feet in One Manhattan West

Ernst & Young LLP (EY) announced today a new lease agreement for 600,000 square feet at One Manhattan West, the 67-story, 2.1-million square foot office tower under construction on Manhattan’s west side.

“EY continues to grow and expand in serving our clients and our people across the Tri-State region. Today’s agreement with One Manhattan West, an inspiring, state-of-the-art environment in one of the best connected locations in the city, aligns with EY’s focus on innovation across all aspects of business,” said Richard M. Jeanneret, Vice Chair - Northeast Region Managing Partner, EY.

“EY’s commitment to our clients and our people in the New York area and around the world keeps us constantly focused on what’s next – staying on the leading edge of business,” added Jeanneret. “One Manhattan West, with its convenient location and focus on connectivity and technology, is a great addition to our Metro New York footprint which includes our two new EY wavespace™ locations and a brand new office and learning center in Hoboken. We are constantly evaluating opportunities to expand EY’s ability to help our clients navigate the transformative age.”

Manhattan West benefits from excellent access to public transportation. It sits immediately adjacent to the soon-to-be-redeveloped Empire Station/Penn Station Complex – the busiest train station in North America – and near the new 7-train station at Hudson Yards, New York City’s first subway extension in decades. It is one block from the A, C, E, 1, 2, 3 and 7 subway lines, New Jersey Transit, the Long Island Railroad and Amtrak.

The One Manhattan West agreement comes on the heels of EY opening a global network of growth and innovation wavespace centers to help clients catch the next wave in radical breakthroughs in business transformation and tap into innovative thinking across EY disciplines, experience and industry sectors. EY expanded its footprint in Manhattan with two wavespace centers in Union Square and Chelsea, the hotbed for start-up companies in the Tri-State area.

These locations feature a shared methodology and platform combining EY’s deep experience in areas such as artificial intelligence, robotics process automation, blockchain, data analytics, digital, customer experience and cyber security – with EY’s deep industry domain and regulatory experience.

Later this year, EY will also open an approximately 170,000 square-feet office in Hoboken, NJ, which will include one of EY’s main learning hubs. This new location will feature advanced technology that enables high performance teaming and learning.
