15 Hudson Yards is a residential building on Manhattan's West Side, completed in 2019. 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.
15 Hudson Yards started construction on December 4, 2014. The tower was topped out in February 2018 with scheduled opening in spring 2019. By January 2019, approximately 60% of the building's units had been sold.
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 as performed by WSP Cantor Seinuk.
The building includes 285 residential units. The 50th and 51st floor are a 40,000 square feet (3,700 m2) amenity space containing an aquatics center with a 75-foot-long swimming pool, spa, fitness center, yoga studio, children’s playroom, private dining suites, screening room, golf club lounge, wine storage, and business center. The building also features the "Skytop", an open-air terrace on top of the building that is marketed as the highest outdoor residential roof deck in New York City.
The tower will be integrated with The Shed, a cultural venue at the tower's base. 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 building's lobby will contain a large-scale wooden installation designed by American sculptor Joel Shapiro.
