10 Hudson Yards (also called the South Tower or Tower C[3]) is an office building that was completed in 2016[4] 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 urban renewal project, a plan to redevelop the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's West Side Yard. Because Coach, Inc. is the anchor tenant, the tower is occasionally informally called the 'Coach Tower' ; the name is not used in any official documents.



Hudson Yards, conceived through a large master plan by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, is expected to consist of 16 skyscrapers containing more than 12,700,000 square feet (1,180,000 m2) of new office, residential, and retail space. Among its components will be six million square feet (560,000 m2) of commercial office space, a 750,000-square-foot (70,000 m2) retail center with two levels of restaurants, cafes, markets and bars, a hotel, a cultural space, about 5,000 residences, a 750-seat school, and 14 acres (5.7 ha) of public open space. 10 Hudson Yards, the first building on the site, is expected to help draw visitors to the area.[5]

Groundbreaking for 10 Hudson Yards occurred on December 4, 2012,[3][4] with a provisional completion date of 2016.[6] Foundation work continued through the first half of 2013 and the superstructure work began on the tower in August 2013.[7][better source needed] During excavation work, 70,000 cubic yards (54,000 m3) of soil have been removed and 11,000 cubic yards (8,400 m3) of concrete have been poured.[8] The contract to construct the tower was awarded to a subsidiary of Tutor Perini in March 2013.[9] The tower is the first tower in the Hudson Yards complex to be built, because it is the only Hudson Yards tower not on the artificial platform over the West Side Yards.[10]

As of March 2014, 10 Hudson Yards has risen more than 100 feet (30 m).[11] As of February 2015, 10 Hudson Yards is 27 stories tall.[12] As of April 2015, thirty-two of the tower's 52 floors were completed.[13] As of November 2015, 10 Hudson Yards is topped out.[14] The tower was opened on May 31, 2016, with the first three hundred Coach, Inc. employees moving into the building.[15]

The southern facade of 10 Hudson Yards cantilevers over the 30th Street spur of the High Line, and one of the building's entrances is to be located on the High Line.[8] The architectural firm who designed 10 Hudson Yards was Kohn Pedersen Fox.[5][8][16]


The building is anchored by Coach, Inc., who will have 737,774 square feet (68,541 m2) on floors 9 to 24 within the tower.[8][17] Additional occupants include L'Oreal USA,[8][18] Boston Consulting Group, and SAP,[8] occupying 402,000 square feet (37,300 m2), 193,295 square feet and 115,000 square feet (10,700 m2), respectively.[19] Fairway, a locally based grocer, was expected to build a store in the lower floors of the building, occupying 45,875 square feet (4,262 m2).[8][20] VaynerMedia will also be a tenant.[21]

There will also be retail space at street level adjacent to the retail building immediately to the north of 10 Hudson Yards. That building will be designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects.[22]
