Why would it? We haven't any news of a height change.

Nordstrom buys its 57th St. store, jumbo skyscraper pending

Quote:
Nordstrom will be settling on West 57th Street for the long haul.

The Seattle-based retailer has shelled out $102.5 million to own the site of its future Midtown flagship store, which will anchor one of the tallest buildings in the world, according to property records reviewed by The Post.

As first reported by The Post last June, the upscale chain will open its first New York department store at 225 W. 57th St. — with an entrance on the east side of Broadway.

The store will occupy the first seven floors of an 88-story residential condominium tower that will stretch 1,550 fee, according to property records.

That’s taller than the Empire State Building, which is 1,454 feet to the tip of its antenna, and nearly as tall as the upcoming One World Trade Center, whose official height of 1,776 feet is yet to be certified, but would also include its 408-foot tall spire.

Nordstrom, in public filings last week, said its new store, slated to open in 2018, will have 175,000 square feet of floor space. Last year, Nordstrom said the store will span 285,000 square feet.
Quote:
Last week, Barnett — now armed with more than $100 million to begin development of the giant tower — cleared the way for Nordstrom’s payment by purchasing the last piece of an odd-shaped land puzzle between West 57th and 58th streets that will become the site of the project.

Barnett bought the last holdout — the 20.2-foot-wide Beethoven piano building at 223 W. 58th St. for $25 million.

No, the space for Nordstrom decreased from 285K s.f. to 175K s.f. Also, the height they listed is from DOB filings we saw months ago.

how come the shop has decreased?
does that mean a decrease in height? or do the square footage lost in the shop get added into the tower for condos?

Not necessarily. I think it's just the removal of a floor or two of the podium, leaving more room for residential units, which, in all honesty, will provide more profit by far.

Right. A reduction in Nordstrom's space in the podium could actually translate into a taller tower, if Barnett were to re-allocate the building rights. 110k sq. ft. of additional (much narrower) condo space could mean an increase of several stories, if it was all maxed out.

175,000 sq. ft is still a huge commercial footprint. That's equivalent to almost 9 floors of 200 X 100 feet, or 6 floors of 200 X 150 feet.

Man-O-Manischewitz that guy who owned the piano store made out like a Frito Bandito! $25 million for that little plot!

The footprint is 200 x 200.

Unknown until now. But since this tower will have the highest floors in the city it would be quite cool

I doubt it. A penthouse that high would call for quick easy money that could get more projects rolling. An observation deck in a residential building, especially NY's tallest, is highly unlikely.

I am wondering if the so called piano row will be recreated somewhere? After all this was one of the landmarks of NYC's history.

probably across the street.

The post article mentions that the owner of the Beethoven Pianos is under contract to purchase a building just right across the street. Steinway Pianos I think is re-locating somewhere in queens. So it won't be a row anymore. hehe
