A new skyline rising across Manhattan poses a challenge for the owners of the city's aging office buildings as they face expensive overhauls in order to compete against a wave of amenity-rich towers nearing completion. Manhattan has the oldest office infrastructure in the world, and record levels of available space by 2017 will test the moxie of landlords who are losing top tenants to the new buildings mostly going up in Lower Manhattan and on the West Side.
