Construction has reached the 27th floor at 10 Hudson Yards, surpassing the half way mark at the first tower at Related's Hudson Yards mega development. The 52-story, 1.7 million square feet commercial office tower by KPF will be the new corporate home for Coach, L'Oreal and SAP. Curtain wall installation has reached the 16th floor and is composed of full floor height units without the more commonly used visible spandrel panel at the floor slab. The use of full floor units without visible spandrel is a recent trend in New York office buildings, such as the new World Trade Center towers, and even the new residential tower at 400 Park Avenue South.
