Manhattan West Gets a Food Hall


Brookfield Properties is bringing a large food hall to its Manhattan West megaproject. 

Dubbed Citizens, the 40,000-square-foot eatery will include two full service restaurants, multiple bars and a fast-casual market hall, Brookfield announced this week. C3, a subsidiary of hospitality company sbe, will operate the space at 5 Manhattan West

C3, which stands for Creating Culinary Communities, signed a lease for the space at 10th Avenue and West 31st Street, but Brookfield didn’t disclose the terms of the deal.

“As the newest arm of our organization, C3 was specifically launched to disrupt the F&B industry and capitalize on the rapidly evolving landscape of consumer preferences,” sbe founder and CEO Sam Nazarian said in prepared remarks. “The future of dining is casual, mobile and experiential and C3 is delivering on that reality with the opening of Citizens.”

Five Manhattan West will also host a 60,000-square-foot Whole Foods. Elsewhere in the Manhattan West complex, the retail offerings will include a multi-concept restaurant by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, a 35,000-square-foot fitness studio from Peloton, and a 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar called Elemental.

When it’s complete, the eight-acre Manhattan West complex will encompass three commercial buildings with 6 million square feet of office space, 844 luxury rentals at the Eugene, and the Pendry Manhattan West hotel.
