Nordstrom will open the first full-line store in New York City. This new flagship store will open along Manhattan’s bustling 57th Street corridor at 225 West 57th Street, between Broadway and Seventh Avenue, in the Columbus Circle area of Manhattan. The 285,000 square-foot store is expected to open in 2018.
The 40,000 square foot block-through site, which fronts on the northern side of 57th Street between Broadway and Seventh Avenue and extends to 58th Street, once housed the original Hard Rock Cafe. The parcel was assembled by Extell President Gary Barnett over a period of nearly a decade. According to Mr. Barnett, excavation work on the site could begin as early as the first quarter of next year.
“It makes perfect sense that Nordstrom – one of the premier names in retailing – would want a flagship store in New York, the world’s premier city for retailing,” said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. “This is very exciting news for New Yorkers and the millions of tourists who come to our city to shop each year, and this new addition to the West Side of Manhattan is another sign of the private sector’s confidence in New York City.”
Nordstrom operates 231 stores in 31 states, including 117 full-line stores and 110 Nordstrom Racks.
