MANHATTAN WEST, NEW YORK CITY, US Mixed-use. Presented by Brookfield Property Partners

SOYO is a new neighbourhood in Leeds, providing a heart to the cultural district of the city. The 2.5 ha site, central to the Quarry Hill area, will provide new homes and commercial space, including restaurants, coffee shops, a hotel, student accommodation, offices and extensive, highquality public realm. Developer Caddick has been working with West Yorkshire Playhouse, Northern Ballet, Yorkshire Dance, Leeds City College and Leeds College of Music to create a singular cohesive voice for the area. Phase one, on site from spring 2017, will bring forward 515 build-to-rent apartments under the Moda brand.

MANHATTAN West is a 3.25 ha, six-building mixeduse development in New York City, stretching from Ninth Avenue to Tenth Avenue and 31st Street to 33rd Street. It will feature nearly 550,000 sq m of Class-A office space, luxury residences and a boutique hotel. A vibrant urban landscape with landscaped gardens and dynamic street-front retail will bring together high-end, experiential shops and innovative culinary concepts, enhanced with public art and events. Manhattan West provides unparalleled transportation access between the soon-to-be-redeveloped Penn Station — the busiest train station in North America — and the new train station at Hudson Yards.

CARGOLUX HEADQUARTERS, LUXEMBOURG Mixed-use. Presented by lux-Airport

VDNH WHEEL, MOSCOW, RUSSIA Mixed-use. Presented by Regions Group

CARGOLUX, Europe’s leading all-cargo airline, and lux-Airport, manager of Luxembourg Airport, have recently started work on the airline’s new headquarters. The brief, won by Frankfurt-based AS+P, was to design a building that would allow the company to bring its operations under one roof and facilitate closer and faster interaction across the business. The new headquarters will be constructed and owned by lux-Airport, while Cargolux has committed to a long-term lease contract. Construction works started at the end of 2017 and Cargolux expects to move into the building in early 2020.

AT 140 metres, the VDNH wheel will be the biggest observation wheel in Europe, equipped with 30 closed cabins, including three VIP cabins. Its glass walls and cooling and heating system will allow visitors to enjoy panoramic views comfortably all year round. Designed by Сhapman Taylor with technical implementation by Intamin, the project features a winter garden at the entrance, where visitors can relax before embarkation and enjoy souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants, a children’s entertainment park, a multiplex cinema and a wax museum.
