Coach has a giant opening scheduled for next Tuesday — its new headquarters at 10 Hudson Yards.
In 2013, Coach committed to relocating its headquarters to Hudson Yards, becoming an impetus for attracting additional office tenants and spurring progress at the megamixed-use development covering 28 acres on Manhattan’s far West Side.
The 1.8 million-square-foot 10 Hudson Yards tower, situated on the south side of Hudson Yards at the foot of the High Line, becomes the first building to open at Hudson Yards, which sits atop the railroad yards funneling into Penn Station. In effect, Hudson Yards will create a new neighborhood in a pocket of the city that’s been largely desolate for decades. It extends from 30th to 33rd Streets, between 10th and 12th Avenues, and from 33rd to 34th Streets, between 10th and 11th Avenues.
According to Related Cos., developer of Hudson Yards, by the end of the year, 10 Hudson Yards will house L’Oréal USA, German software engineering firm SAP, The Boston Consulting Group, VaynerMedia, Intersection and Sidewalk Labs, as well as Coach.
Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the nation’s history. Related says the project is expected to be complete in 2025 and draw more than 125,000 people a day, including those who work there, or visit. Coach will have 7,000 employees at its new headquarters. The fashion firm purchased 738,000 square feet of 10 Hudson Yards, and is believed to be recapitalizing a portion of the space.
In total, Hudson Yards will have 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space, including The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards with 100 shops including New York’s first Neiman Marcus and signature restaurants by chefs Thomas Keller, José Andrés and Costas Spiliadis. Also planned are approximately 4,000 residences; 14 acres of public open space; a public school and a 200-room Equinox luxury hotel.
