Renderings of its new store on Broadway, between West 57th and West 58th streets, depict a main glass tower featuring seven floors of retail space and a central atrium that maintains the “landmark façade” of what was once 1780 Broadway, the company said.
The flagship will also include an 8,000-square-foot retail space at street level at 5 Columbus Circle that connects to the main building, with a rebuilt façade that “evoke[s] the historic design of the original building.”
Additionally, four retail floors will sit inside 1776 Broadway, with a West 57th Street entrance, and 43,000 square feet of space will fill 3 Columbus Circle, where Nordstrom’s men’s store will be located.
Visitors will be able to walk directly between the tower, 1776 Broadway and 5 Columbus Circle, officials said.
“In this amazing city of art, culture and fashion, we hoped to create a design that amplifies New York City’s creative energy,” said Dawn Clark, vice president of store design and architecture for Nordstrom.
"We think the modern exterior glass design combined with the historical renovations honor both the past and future of Manhattan,” Nordstrom co-president Pete Nordstrom added.
In total, the flagship will occupy 363,000 square feet of space, according to the retailer.
The store is slated to open in 2019.
