I think it would be best if it would be like this: Coach Tower (HUdson Yards)

It isn't too long while still providing the info that the Coach Tower is part of the Hudson Yards

I don't know if this tower will be 950'. That's a guess which includes the crown. It will be at least 905' as per the DOB.

What makes you think the South Tower will go Higher but the North Tower not?

Just curious

Maybe because they have decided a maximum height to which the towers can go here.

I doubt that. In NYC building is about square feet of air rights. The floor area of the building is what matters, not the height

I think the thread should be titled Hudson Yards South Tower. As I understand, that's the official name, whereas Coach is just an anchor tenant. We don't call 1 World Trade Center the Conde Nast Tower.

Remember that shot in the Josie and the Pussycats movie from like '99 or around then when they go to New York and there's a huge McDonald's golden arches spanning across both of the Twin Towers and the entire city is glaring with branded schlock just like Times Square? I fee like that's the direction we're heading here, citywide (see also: Citibike)

In a certain sense, yes; and I also am aware that this is a minority opinion. But that's not a conversation for this thread.

I do think it's a shame for a public park to be branded or to offer naming rights. But the High Line isn't a true public park to begin with, so I suppose the point is moot.

There are 3 options for a project like this, the options are: 1. Build with taxpayers money, 2. Build with corporate sponsorship or, 3. Not build it all! Given those 3 options corporate sponsorship seems like the best way for this and any other project if it's available. Taxpayers as a whole don't want to be burdened with increased taxes yet they want new public areas so corporate sponsorship is thus the best option.

Excellent. I will look forward to visiting the Goldenvoice Presents: Central Park, the Google Brooklyn Bridge Park, Popeye's East River Esplanade, and maybe even the Bank of America Gateway National Recreation Area soon!
