Before visitors get a chance to check out the massive Nordstrom flagship store at the base of Central Park Tower, they’ll be able to make a stop at the clothing chain’s Men’s Store, just a few steps away. Located at the base of 3 Columbus Circle, the Men’s Store will open next spring, a whole year and a half ahead of the Women’s Store, which will open in the fall of 2019.
Overall the Nordstrom flagship will span four properties: seven floors at Central Park Tower, one floor measuring 8,000 square feet at 5 Columbus Circle, four floors of retail at 1776 Broadway, and 43,000 square feet at 3 Columbus Circle.
While the interiors of Central Park Tower, 5 Columbus Circle, and 1776 Broadway will all be connected, the Men’s Store will stand separate from these properties. The latter will occupy the first three floors of 3 Columbus Circle, a 310-foot office building that was once the headquarters of General Motors Corporation.
Meanwhile over at Central Park Tower, the Nordstrom portion of New York City’s soon-to-be-tallest residential building was being fitted with its fluted glass facade a couple of months ago. That portion of the building was designed by James Carpenter Design Associates. The tower overall is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, and developer Extell is expected to launch sales on the building’s 179 condos in the second of this year.
