NEW YORK | 10 Hudson Yards - Coach Tower | 268m | 878ft | 52 fl | Com

I think we can agree on this for once and for all... this is the first tower of Hudson Yards, if you don't know.

Indeed, I do, and that's why I don't think it will:

Too bad the SSP diagram still shows the old 300m+ design. Looks like I might be forced to draw a diagram model for the first time from scratch ........ oh my, that'll look horrible

This thread should not be closed. I'm guessing that the tower will be vertical by the end of the year or early next year. This tower is unique for Hudson Yards in that it has no part that requires a platform over the rail yard.

I completely agree with you. Individual buildings should have individual threads and this is an individual building

Thread should stay. And someone should include the floor count in the thread title.

http://www.hudsonyardsnewyork.com/wo...ce/south-tower

South Tower

It all starts with the South Office Tower as construction at Hudson Yards began in the Fall of 2012.


Located at 10th Avenue and West 30th Street, this 52-story tower features a signature design by KPF. The South Tower is anchored by luxury leather goods brand Coach, Inc. and is visible from the High Line.

The South Tower’s relationship with the High Line and proximity to Culture Shed gives the building a unique and visible presence in Chelsea. The introduction of smaller scale elements at the base of the building’s design, such as stone collonades and a dramatic atrium, relate to the vibrant activity in nearby public spaces.

Quote:

I think it should stay since it is already U/C. However I think the name should include the words "Hudson Yards", so it could be called "Hudson Yards-Coach tower" or better "Hudson Yards-South Tower" (I think it's better the last one, since it is the official name in the Hudson Yards site, they don't call it Coach Tower)

Nice. Finally a single topic. Now it is simpler to read only news of this building. I really like this building, but my favorites are the North Tower and E Tower. Anyway, this will be amazing!

Single threads are fine and more detailed. Don't we all want that? Cheers for creating this thread Simfan.

According to the DOB, it will be 905 feet tall. I suspect that to the top of the crown, it will be around 950 feet tall.

So a slight height increase? I hope the North Tower will get one too

I doubt that the north tower will go higher, but you never know.

I edited the height. As for the title, I think it should be either Coach Tower or Hudson Yards South Tower. Just to keep it tidy and not make the title unnecessarily too long. Agree?

But whichever, as long as people recognise it

I wouldn't worry too much about recognition. People don't visit this forum if they are not interested. They click the thread and read the first line which says it is part of the Hudson Yards development. I think it looks alright this way. However, if the majority of you guys disagree, please let me know and we'll figure out a solution that works

Could you add the floors too?
