Nordstrom Tower

Central Park Tower, also known as the Nordstrom Tower, is a residential supertall skyscraper being developed by Extell Development Company and Shanghai Municipal Investment Group along Billionaires’ Row on 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the building rises 1,550 feet (472 m) and is the second-tallest skyscraper in the United States and the Western Hemisphere, the 15th tallest building in the world, the tallest residential building in the world (the much taller Burj Khalifa in Dubai has 900 residential units, but is mixed-use), and the tallest building outside Asia by roof height.
