High-End Fashion Brand Plans To Situtate Headquarters Over Rail Yards
Coach is planning to occupy a 600,000-square-feet space in what used to be a deserted rail yard.
Coach is an upscale leather-goods manufacturer known for their handbags, wallets and accessories. The global brand aims to have its new world headquarters in the west of New York city where it was formerly a freight train line in 2009. What used to be a deserted rail yard, has since received an urban makeover and is now referred to as the Hudson Yards. Further development continues to transform the space into a residential and high-rise office district.
Coach will occupy a 600,000-square-feet space in a 51-story building situated at the north end of The High Line. Construction is scheduled to start in the middle of next year.
