Extell's Nordstrom Tower Sure Is Going to Be Tall and Skinny

New, 35 comments


NY YIMBY got their hands on some renderings of Extell's planned Nordstrom Tower at 217 West 57th Street. And, while it would be a stretch to say that the design of the building (glass, more glass) is in any way surprising, it would not be a stretch to say that it's going to be very, very tall, and very, very skinny. At 1,775 feet, the top of the spire will be one foot shy of One World Trade Center (now that's what you call deference), although, as YIMBY points out, since Midtown is higher above sea level than the Financial District, the Nordstrom tower will technically be the highest point in New York City. Until the next huge, glassy skyscraper comes along in about twenty minutes, that is.
