Diller Scofidio + Renfro
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.  
Architecture and design
15 Hudson Yards 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". The tower's nickname, the Corset Tower, owes to its unique appearance; the straps along the tower create a "corset-like" appearance.
The tower will be integrated with the Culture Shed. Scheduled to open in the spring of 2018, Culture Shed will host activities in a wide range of cultural areas including art, performance, film, design, food, fashion, and new combinations of cultural content.
The building is expected to have 458 residential apartments by its completion, meaning that 27 apartments will not be residential.
