It's Official: NYC's Tallest Residential Tower Will Look Like This

New, 72 comments

The first interior rendering (and floorplan!) of Extell's Nordstrom Tower, which will be the tallest residential building in the Northern Hemisphere at 1,775 feet when it's complete in 2018, make a couple of things clear: 1) from the mid 1,000 foot range, the city looks flat, 2) the penthouse will have the highest outdoor space in the city, and 3) the luxury real estate game is off the charts. The interior rendering, revealed by YIMBY, also comes along with the building's first official exterior renderings. In comparison to the Nordstrom Tower at No. 217, 57th Street's other Extell project, One 57, looks laughably squat. The tower's roof height will reach 1,479 feet, which is nearly 100 feet taller than the skyline-dominating 432 Park Avenue. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture are the project architects.

Although the Nordstrom Tower defers one foot to the World Trade Center in its ground-up height, YIMBY notes that Midtown is about 70 feet higher than the Financial District.

When complete, the namesake tower will house a 200,000-square-foot Nordstrom's department store, offices, a hotel, and, judging by the successes of One 57, what will probably be record-breaking condos.
