NEW YORK (AP) - Developers say they have broken ground on a 51-story office tower on Manhattan’s far west side.

Mitsui Fudosan America Inc. said Wednesday it is partnering with Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group on the 1.3 million-square-foot skyscraper known as Fifty Five Hudson Yards.

The building will be situated on the northeast corner of 11th Avenue and West 33rd Street across from the new No. 7 subway extension.

It will be part of Related’s massive, $15 billion Hudson Yards development.

A. Eugene Kohn of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the design architect for Fifty Five Hudson Yards.

The developers say the building will be ready for tenants in 2017.

Mitsui Fudosan America is the U.S. arm of Japan’s largest real estate company.
