Spanish multinational financial services company BBVA has announced plans to relocate its headquarters to Two Manhattan West, a recently completed 58-story office skyscraper in the Manhattan West complex in Midtown West. The move is set to be finalized by the end of 2024.
BBVA’s new headquarters is set to occupy roughly 74,000 square feet across two floors in Two Manhattan West. The skyscraper offers modern amenities, including fitness centers, conference facilities, and outdoor terraces, and is strategically located near major transportation hubs and city attractions.
A key aspect of BBVA’s move is the alignment with its sustainability goals. Two Manhattan West, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is LEED-Gold certified and powered entirely by renewable energy, specifically run-of-river hydropower. This eco-friendly approach is in line with Brookfield Properties‘ commitment to transitioning its U.S. office portfolio to zero-emissions electricity by 2026.
With BBVA on board, Two Manhattan West has now achieved over 80 percent occupancy, joining other major tenants in the area and demonstrating the building’s appeal to leading global firms.
