How a soon-to-open Nordstrom is reinventing Broadway

t may be too early to count the retail chickens, but it is inevitable they will start to roost along the Broadway corridor from West 57th Street down to Times Square — all because of the coming Nordstrom at the base of the under-construction Central Park Tower at 225 W. 57th St.

The Nordstrom will also have a Broadway entrance, right across the street from the 3 Columbus Circle office building. Here, second-floor retail signage proclaims “Across From Nordstrom,” as Winick Realty Group promotes its own large retail availability.

“Nordstrom’s entry into Manhattan is arguably one of retail’s most anticipated store openings,” says Kelly Gedinsky of Winick Realty Group, who is marketing the space opposite the new Nordstrom. Gedinsky adds, “Shopping patterns will most certainly change as consumers are almost guaranteed to be driven to this section of the city.”

Nearby, the discount retailer TJ Maxx is attracting fashionistas to its almost 30,000-square-foot perch on the south side of West 57th Street at Eighth Avenue.

To ensure another competitor doesn’t open across from its Broadway entrance, brokers say Nordstrom is negotiating for the spot at 3 Columbus Circle. The end user may be Nordstrom Rack, its charitable Treasure & Bond brand, the brick-and-mortar Pop In@Nordstrom, which features ever-changing lineups such as the current promotion for Opening Ceremony — or even an entirely new concept the Seattle-based department store is cooking up in order to excite shoppers about the city’s first store, which will not open for several more years.

But there is a wrinkle: Along with the available space, Nordstrom would like to take over the prime corner now occupied by Bank of America on Broadway at 57th Street.

Gedinsky represents the building and declined to comment on any potential deals with Nordstrom or any other retailer.

“Nordstrom is the anchor,” declares Gene Spiegelman, vice chairman of Cushman & Wakefield. “It is the north end of Times Square, and it will meet the south end.” But, he warns, it could take a decade.

The corridor should get a boost as the Nordstrom effect takes over and pedestrian patterns change. Certainly, more feet will be on 57th Street’s “Billionaires’ Row,” where condominiums are either open or under construction with prices that rise into the stratosphere — just like the units themselves, which can be some 1,500 feet in the clouds. Case in point: the ones being developed by Extell Development right on top of Nordstrom.

“You have that residential development going east-west on 57th Street, and we will see the trickle effect from Times Square going north and south [from the Bow Tie, the central area where Seventh Avenue and Broadway cross],” agrees Jason Pruger, executive managing director at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

Gary Barnett’s Extell is planning a completely new 60-story tower with nearly 400,000 square feet of space at 1710 Broadway, on the southeast corner of West 54th Street, which will likely include new street-level retail.

Expected to become a mix of condos and hotels, 1710 will join 3,000 to 6,000 area hotel rooms that bring tourists and business executives for some local food, folks and fun.

CBS’ television staple, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” has also reignited the energy around the Ed Sullivan Theater at 1697 Broadway, mid-block between West 53rd and 54th streets. Here, audience and staff create bumps in business......

:yeahthat: It will be interesting to compare Nordstrom to Bergdorf Goodman (being that the two stores are both facing each other on both sides of 5th Ave.)

Nice stores, I've shopped at both.
We will have to wait until the retail portion actually opens for business to really compare.
It's not just opinions here, it's about the experience.

Has anyone on this forum ever shopped at a genuine Nordstrom store?

^ sure, ive been in nordstrom stores in dallas, cleveland and seattle. i think thats about it? i would say the bg experience feels more classic and posh and nordstrom more traditional mall like. i dk about the merch, i'm mostly just a shop widow* or breeze through them window shopper type. seems about the same, but i dk that for sure -- more hardcore higher end shoppers would know.

*a shop widow is where you wander around, plop in seated areas or stand on the street while your sig other shops.:haha:

Nordstrom isn't a luxury store like BG. It's more like a nice, upper middle class store, like Bloomingdales or Lord & Taylor.

They're in practically every decent mall in America.

i see a lot of topshops have popped up in nordstroms, which is neither here nor there for this nordstroms, but a good way for topshop to spread itself around the usa without having to open up stores. so nordstroms has that for-the-people 'gap' level of merchandise, which bg certainly does not cater to. i dk how bg and nordstroms match up on the higher end though.

I honestly don't get why this Nordstroms is such a huge deal. I've been to many of them and they're just a fancier Macy's and can be found in most cities biggest malls.

chris08876 Dec 12, 2015 2:02 PM

Its the first big Nordstrom in NYC thats not an outlet. There's one on Union Square, and another large one planned in Lower Manhattan. Either way, it will generate even more attention for the area. People just think of Nordstrom when it comes to tower because they are the anchor tenant.

In reality though, this is the CPT tower. The store is just the public portion of it, but most of it is a refugee camp for the elite, and the tallest in the Western Hemisphere. For now... :)

The first of anything is usually hyped up around here. There were lines around the block for a freaking Chick-Fil-A grand opening for example.

I don't think the Nordstrom is that big of a deal. It's the tower that contains the Nordstrom that's the big deal.

The Nordstrom itself is not insignificant, as it will be the global flagship, and will supposedly be a unique design over seven floors with different offerings than the typical Nordstrom. And there are no other Nordstroms in NYC, though they were looking for about 15 years (now supposedly a second one is planned for Lower Manhattan). And the store will anchor what is shaping up to be a new retail corridor (previously there was little retail of interest along West 57th), and will finally connect Times Square and Columbus Circle.

But it's really the tower that's the star here, unless you're a shopper type.

This is what Bloomingdales is.
I just love how you can enter the store directly from the 4 - 5 - 6 lines below.
I took advantage of the subway access quite frequently back in the day! :P

Unless you're a tourist, you will be shopping there! :rolleyes:

Since we haven't seen the upper floor schematics for the 1550 ft version, I'm very curious as to what elevation the highest occupied floor will be at, and whether it will be a residence or a private observatory/party room for condo owners.

By looking at the 1522' version, it looks like the mezzanine floor is the highest non-machinery floor, but I don't know if that counts as occupied or not.

Either way, I believe we are looking at the first occupied floors over 1400 ft in the western hemisphere (not counting the CN Tower space deck at 1465')

I remember reading the top apartment was something like 1,432', not sure if that's the exact figure but it's in that ballpark.

There is of course mechanical and maybe event space above that.

Cool- thanks!

by far the highest views in Manhattan... :cheers:

It's hard to even begin to imagine living in a place like that. Maybe all of SSP can pitch in some money, buy it, and we can take turns going up there :D
