In June 2012, Extell announced its plans to build its newest landmark along Manhattan’s premier 57th Street corridor. Rising to over 1,550 feet above Manhattan, Central Park Tower will be New York’s tallest residential tower.
The building will include ultra-luxury condominium residences, dynamic amenity spaces as well as a 285,000-square-foot Nordstrom department store. This new 7-story flagship store will be Nordstrom’s flagship location in New York City. Designed by the world-renowned architectural firm, Adrian Smith+ Gordon Gill Architecture, with interiors by Rottet Studio, Central Park Tower will redefine the famed NewYork City skyline. The transparent and delicately designed base facade allows for natural light to illuminate the department store interior. Above the base, the tower begins to setback from the street edge and yield unprecedented views of Central Park, the city and beyond.
