At a time when extraordinary urban projects are arising around the world, Hudson Yards will be an important symbol of New York’s continued leadership in global urbanism.
Anchoring the east side of the largest private real estate development in U.S. history, the first two towers (10 and 30 Hudson Yards) and retail podium (20 Hudson Yards) link directly to the prevailing industrial character of the West Side and enhance the burgeoning neighborhood with a fresh visual dynamic.
The two towers tilt in opposing directions in a purposeful dialogue. One tower defers to the city and the other pays homage to the Hudson River. The towers’ skyline presence offers varying experiences depending on the viewing location and creates a dynamic presence on the New York cityscape.
Anchoring the southern corner of the site and straddling the famed High Line, the Class-A office tower, 10 Hudson Yards, will serve as Coach’s global headquarters as well as host to such world-class companies as L’Oréal USA and SAP. Coach’s “vertical campus” features a soaring atrium and floor-to-ceiling glass in a column-free space, and is designed to accommodate the modern high-density office environment.
The tallest tower in the development, 30 Hudson Yards, will be home to the highest outdoor observation deck in New York City, and global media and entertainment company, Time Warner, and its subsidiaries, HBO, CNN, and Warner Brothers. The tower will feature large, efficient floor plans, cutting-edge communications systems for tenants and unparalleled amenities for workers.
The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, situated between 10 and 30 Hudson Yards, will be one of New York City’s premiere locations for fashion and dining, setting a new benchmark for shopping in a dynamic, mixed-used setting, including a feature wall by celebrated American artist and designer, James Carpenter. The one million square foot retail center will present to visitors and residents a carefully curated collection of top brands through its 100-plus shops and New York City’s first Neiman Marcus while The Restaurants will bring together a collection of New York’s most celebrated cuisine.
