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. The tower started construction on December 4, 2014.
Architecture and design
15 Hudson Yards is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group and Ismael Leyva Architects  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. Structural engineering performed by WSP Cantor Seinuk.
The tower will be integrated with The Shed. Scheduled to open in the spring of 2019, The 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 tower contains 285 for-sale apartments.
