Apparel retailer Nordstrom unveiled the footprint and exterior design of its first Nordstrom store in New York City, which will encompass four properties in the Columbus Circle neighbourhood of Manhattan.

In a press release, the apparel retailer, who operates 323 US stores, said the approximately 363,000 square-foot store is expected to open in 2019.

The four properties include existing, historic buildings as well as new construction at the base of Central Park Tower, an Extell Development Company project.

Plans include modern glass façades on the new construction at the base of Central Park Tower, envisioned by designer James Carpenter, known for distinctive use of natural light and luminescent artistic sensibility.

Additionally, Nordstrom will restore or rebuild the street level façades of the other buildings to evoke their original historic design.

"We're building in the context of the world's greatest stores and our ambition is to create an entire experience that reflects the best of what we have to offer," said Pete Nordstrom, co-president, Nordstrom.

"We think the modern exterior glass design combined with the historical renovations honour, both the past and future of Manhattan and we look forward to the day when we can open our doors,” he added.

According to Nordstrom, stunning glass façades will fill each floor with light, while at the same time projecting the beauty and energy of the interior to the street.

“Customers will be able to shop retail space located on seven levels, two below street-level and five above,” Nordstrom too added.

A seven-level atrium at the heart of the building, also designed by JCDA, highlights the escalators connecting each floor, while it will have entrances on both West 57th Street and West 58th Street.

The Tower portion also incorporates the landmark façade of the former 1780 Broadway building which will be completely restored and three new two-level atriums of retail space will be created in the interior. (AR)
