The developer's Manhattan West project will be built over rail tracks west of Penn Station.

Manhattan West will fill the block between Tenth and Ninth avenues with three towers, a public plaza and walkway, shops, garages and a hotel.

Tenants have yet to be announced.

Construction of the first office tower can start now that the platform is finished.
