The league, which is currently based at 1185 Sixth Ave., near West 46th Street, plans to lease 160,000 square feet of space across five floors inside One Manhattan West, developer Brookfield Property Partners said in a release.
Construction on the 67-story tower at the corner of West 33rd Street and Ninth Avenue — one of six buildings that make up the Manhattan West complex — is expected to wrap up in 2019.
The NHL also plans to lease around 15,000 square feet of space in the complex’s retail corridor for a store that will offer “fan experiences,” the release said.
“The NHL is excited and pleased to be one of the initial tenants at Manhattan West, locating our U.S. headquarters to the ‘new’ West Side,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “Our staff, guests and fans will have a special connection to Manhattan West and the NHL.”
Law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom will be One Manhattan West's anchor tenant.
