New York City's future tallest condo building (but not the tallest building overall, as it will be left one foot shorter than One World Trade Center "out of respect") will have a total sellout of $4.4 billion, the Wall Street Journal reports, making it the most expensive total ever sold if all goes according to plan. $400 million will come from the sale of the base to the Nordstrom Tower and the rest from condos, but even with just just the condos, the sellout would eclipse that of 15 Central Park West ($2 billion) and 220 Central Park South (hoping for $3 billion). In other Nordstrom Tower news, there's a new rendering that NY YIMBY claims is the official one. It is not particularly revealing in a way that any of the previous renderings weren't, but the building still looks very tall.
