15 Hudson Yards is a residential building currently approved for construction in 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. [1][2][3] [4][5]

Architecture and design[edit]

15 Hudson Yards[6] is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and will feature straps along the middle and top part of the building to make it more "fluid-like".[7] The tower's nickname, the Corset Tower, owes to its unique appearance; the straps along the tower create a "corset-like" appearance.

Culture Shed[edit]

Main article: Culture Shed

The tower will be integrated with the Culture Shed.[8][9] Scheduled to open in the spring of 2018,[9] Culture Shed will host activities in a wide range of cultural areas[10] including art, performance, film, design, food, fashion, and new combinations of cultural content.[11]


The tower is to contain 325 rental apartment units and 160 for-sale apartments. Additionally, it is intended that Equinox Fitness will open a location inside the building.[12]

The building is expected to have 458 residential apartments by its completion, meaning that 27 apartments will not be residential.[13]
