Last week, YIMBY brought you a sneak peak of the glassy façade that will eventually be installed on Extell Development’s 95-story, 1,550-foot-tall condominium tower (officially Central Park Tower), currently under construction at 217 West 57th Street in Midtown. The supertall will boast Nordstrom’s first Manhattan flagship store, and now the Seattle Times has revealed official renderings of the building’s retail podium. The Seattle-based department store will span 363,000 square feet across eight stories (three below grade) in the development.

As seen in the renderings, Nordstrom will also build out their presence on multiple floors of the existing neighboring pre-war structures. Their entire retail footprint will seamlessly connect between the new and the old. James Carpenter Design Associates is responsible for designing the wavy glass that will clad Nordstrom Tower’s seven-story base. The new store is expected to open in 2019, along with the tower’s 182 condominium units to be built above. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture is the design architect.

  1. That is one handsome base for an extraordinary building! Let’s hope that the high tide does indeed float all boats (or is that too “trickle down” to benefit anyone but the super-rich?). Happy Valentine’s Day NYC!
