Brookfield Office Properties has officially decided to give its 1.7 million-square-foot tower at 450 West 33rd Street a $200 million renovation.

The upgrade will include a pleated glass façade and a deck over the Lincoln Tunnel entrance to better integrate the 16-story building with the developer’s $4.5 billion Manhattan West project on the Far West Side, Bloomberg News reported.

Brooklyn architecture firm REX was hired to handle the renovations. Josh Kuriloff and Bruce Mosler of Cushman & Wakefield are serving as exclusive leasing agents on Manhattan West. Once complete, the five-acre site near the High Line is slated to hold two office towers, one condominium as well as retail space and a more than two-acre park.

Brookfield began considering the renovations back in 2012, as previously reported. [Bloomberg News]Mark Maurer
