15 Hudson Yards is a residential building currently under construction on Manhattan's West Side. Located in Chelsea near Hell's Kitchen Penn Station area, the building is a part of the Hudson Yards project, a plan to redevelop the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's West Side Yards.[2][3][4][5][6]

Architecture and design[edit]

15 Hudson Yards[7] is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group and Ismael Leyva Architects [8] and will feature straps along the middle and top part of the building to make it more "fluid-like".[9] The tower's nickname, the Corset Tower, owes to its unique appearance; the straps along the tower create a "corset-like" appearance.[10][11] Structural engineering as performed by WSP Cantor Seinuk.

15 Hudson Yards started construction on December 4, 2014.[1] The tower was topped out in February 2018 with scheduled opening in spring 2019. It includes 285 residential units.[12]

The tower will be integrated with The Shed, a cultural venue at the tower's base.[13][14] Scheduled to open in the spring of 2019,[14] The Shed will host activities in a wide range of cultural areas[15] including art, performance, film, design, food, fashion, and new combinations of cultural content.[16]
