^ I still can't believe that a behemoth like this is going up in such a super dense neighborhood. Towers this tall usually sit on a large plot surrounded by massive highways and/or shopping malls. But not here - gotta love New York.

Yes, like China and UAE. The US is mostly low rise office parks and single family homes outside the CBD and the towers are clustered like in NYC, LA, Chicago, etc. Asia seems to like to space it's most prestigious towers out to make a big impression!

The UAE is a car culture so it makes sense. Nobody walks there. China I believe values the open space as good feng shui. These places don't have the limits on land like a NYC has. China can clear land easily to build towers and Dubai has desert for miles.

Hmmm, there's something suspicious about these renders of Nordstrom U/C with a spire...





Wait a minute....

Nordstrom shows plans for elaborate Manhattan flagship



Quote:
By Janet I. Tu, Seattle Times business reporter

Nearly four years after Nordstrom announced plans for its first full-line store in Manhattan, the Seattle retailer unveiled the footprint and exterior design of its New York City flagship.

The 363,000-square-foot store in the Columbus Circle neighborhood of midtown Manhattan is expected to open in 2019.

At first it seemed that they forgot to depict the cantilever, but it is probably just out of sight, at 296 feet above the street.

BTW, the Nordstrom's doesn't look anything like 280 feet tall, which is the figure we've seen in articles. The Arts Student's League building next door is about 96 feet high.

I can't speak for Dubai but I can tell you that in China the planning is different. There generally isn't a CBD that's in the center of the city that's grown organically. Things are spread out across the cities. The reason for that is simple : So many people. China already has too many people clogging things up and there's so few places one can go to get any semblance of open space. One solution was to "air out" new CBDs. This keeps the traffic down to some degree although it's still all incredibly busy. Plus they don't just turn the open space into a parking lot but usually some sort of a park-like space. That's the idea because there isn't much of that in any Chinese city of note.

Clearing land in China isn't that easy even if the government can do it on a whim. Whoever wants that land has to pay off a fair number of people (I'm not talking about bribery here either) and they don't technically own the land anyway. In China there's no such thing as private property as the government owns all land. If anybody is going to put up a fight (and they do from time to time) then, as a developer, you're losing money by the day. You can only rent land from the government in China and the leases all end after 70 years.

Interesting renderings. It'll be nice to have so many ground level facades restored by Nordstrom. So many Nordstrom signs and storefronts though. The new construction portion is not bad. Glad they went with wavy glass.

Yeah, it is a lot of Nordstom signage, but I guess that's what you get when your store appears to encompass 5 separate buildings from ground level.

My question is, where's the resident entrance?

I think one residence entrance can be seen in the last picture (which shows W 58th street) on the left. In the middle is the entrance to the Nordstrom store and to the right must be the loading bay.

But I suspect the main entrance is on W 57th street adjacent to the Art Student League building.

Both entrances are located at the core of the tower.
