For reference... 656' , minus 1', is equivalent to a "One Wall Street" rising.

We tend to forget the impact that 656' has given the surroundings, but in many cities, that is a new tallest. If you place 656' out in a field, you'd be like damn... its big.

Now, the only in NY thing could also be said for the fact that 800' towers go unnoticed. That itself is scary, yet a testament to the boom and the magnitude of its skyscraper collection, spanning 3 centuries!

Whats exiting is we are on our way to being the global city with the most super talls. Where not there yet, but catching up. If all goes well, the #1 spot is in reach. 2# is not acceptable!

Very well said. For some reason this made me think of the STL Arch... Anyone who has visited STL knows how dominating it appears, despite how short it really is (630')

Anyway, assuming the rough estimate of ~650' remaining on this tower is correct, there are only 26 cities in the US with buildings taller than what remains to be built on CPT. Like you said, its easy to get spoiled in NYC, but if thats not impressive idk what is.

Nordstrom’s men’s store is opening Thursday with alcoholic drinks and digital style boards

Fashion-forward and a little futuristic is the tone Nordstrom has set for its New York City Men’s Store, which opens on to the public on Thursday. The 47,000 square-foot, three-level space will be the companion to the company’s main NYC store, expected to open in 2019 in the supertall Central Park Tower, currently under construction across the street.

Nordstrom had spent 30 years looking for an appropriate retail space in NYC, according to Dawn Clark, the company’s SVP of Store Design, Architecture and Construction. She explained that a stand-alone men’s site allowed the company to deliver the Nordstrom experience found in other U.S. cities.

“Even though we have 363,000 square feet over [at Central Park Tower], it was still tight,” Clark explained. “The hardest thing in Manhattan is to get the right scale of space for our total offering. ... We want to have everything here.”

One Worldwide Plaza? It is pretty famous. As far as 2nd tier NYC buildings go.

World Wide Plaza is by no means second tier. It's the HQ to one of the most prestigious law firms in the world.

Looks like the mini-series got pulled from YouTube but I'm sure it's still online in some form somewhere.

The new, 47,000-square-foot store at 235 W. 57th St. — across the street from what will be a much-bigger Nordstrom department store that’s slated to open next year — will offer 24-hour, curbside pickup for online orders.

Quote:

Yes — that means you can pick up your Gucci loafers at 2 a.m. on your way to the nightclub, assisted by an after-hours skeleton crew who will meet you at the entrance, Nordstrom officials confirmed at a Monday media tour of the three-story shop.

Quote:

Nordstrom’s vast shoe department on the lower level — half of which is designer sneakers — offers shoe shines for $2.50 and “sneaker cleanings” for $4.50.

Hitting the right note in the Big Apple, where Nordstrom operates two Nordstrom Rack stores, is key as New York represents its biggest online market, representing about 10 percent of its digital sales.

Despite sluggish shopping trends, the family-run company is slated to open its 328,000-square-foot, seven-story women’s store across the street next year, anchoring a new skyscraper.

Wasn't it also the first 600'+ tower to be built further west than 1 Astor/1515 Broadway? It certainly marks where Hell's Kitchen is.

But apropos here, It's beginning to dawn on me how wide I thought this tower *wasn't* going to be.

I just meant height wise for a building in NYC. It has always been a favorite of mine as well. I wish more modern buildings went for this style.

Back to CPT. I know it has gotten some hate for massing and the loss of the spire, but I think it is going to surprise us. I think it will look much better than 432. Time will tell though. 111 is going to be the real star of midtown.

Nordstrom just opened a store only for men. Here's what it looks like inside

Quote:

Nordstrom just opened its first department store dedicated to men. For the naysayers who doubt there's a need for such a thing today, consider this: Do men really need sneaker shining, personal stylists or the ability to pick up online orders at any hour of the day — even 2 a.m.? Nordstrom thinks so. And all those services and more will be available at the new store.

Located in the heart of New York, in between Times Square and Central Park, the stand-alone men's store is situated across the street from what will eventually be Nordstrom's first full-line store for women in the city. That's set to open next year.

The 47,000 square-foot, three-level men's store has four pint-sized shops inside dedicated to sought-after brands: Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, Valentino and Dior. It's the first time Nordstrom has tried something more upscale like this for men.

Jamie Nordstrom On New York Men's Store Debut: You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet

Quote:

Hey, fella! Still wishing you’d snatched up that Balenciaga blazer for the 9 a.m. sales meeting?

Throw a trench coat over your pajamas and it’s yours! A Nordstrom salesperson will hand over the goods — no matter that it’s 3 a.m.

.....The men’s store reflects the elevated service that will only intensify come fall when Nordstrom bows its 320,000-square-foot, full-line department store, a New York City first, across the street from the men’s store, “unleashing experiences and services” not seen before at retail, he said, ticking off the men’s store’s signature features.
