10 Hudson Yards is an office building currently under construction in Manhattan's West Side. Located near Hell's Kitchen, Chelsea and the Penn Station area, the building is a part of the Hudson Yards project, a plan to redevelop the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's West Side Yards. Until November 2013, it was known as the South Tower. Due to the fact that Coach, Inc. is the anchor tenant, the tower is sometimes informally called the Coach Tower.
Groundbreaking for 10 Hudson Yards occurred on December 4, 2012. Foundation work continued through the first half of 2013 and the superstructure work began on the tower in August 2013. During excavation work, 70,000 cubic yards of soil have been removed and 11,000 cubic yards of concrete have been poured. The contract to construct the tower was awarded to a subsidiary of Tutor Perini in March 2013.
Architecture and design
The southern facade of 10 Hudson Yards cantilevers over the 30th Street spur of the High Line. The design was made by Kohn Pendersen Fox.
The building is anchored by Coach, Inc., who will occupy 740,000 square feet of space in the tower. Additional occupants include L'Oreal USA and SAP, occupying 402,000 square feet and 115,000 square feet, respectively.
