Supertall Tower in New York City, But Not Enough to Outshine 1-WTC
When the idea emerged, the designers of New York City’s Nordstrom Tower look for some different structure altogether than One World Trade Centre. The building would now all set to be a reality in the NYC, but just be fall short of a foot of the record (and the nation). This 1775 feet tall building designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill would add magnetism for the tourists.
Now the Nordstrom Tower is rising even higher. New York Yimby has the scoop on new diagrams that show a height of 1,795 feet for 217 W. 57th Street. Set down that crown on the ground, 1 WTC: When it is completed, Nordstrom Tower will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.
It is to be remember that the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat ruled in 2013 that the Freedom Tower’s spire would count toward its official height, giving New York the nod over Chicago and its Willis Tower in a skyscraper competition dating back years.
The newly opened design scheme for the Nordstrom Tower gives it a parapet height and pinnacle height taller than those for One World Trade Center—so it won’t be taller by a technicality.
It will just be taller. And once construction will be finished, the condos could set some other records as well. For steepest price ever paid for a penthouse, for example, or lowest efficient property tax rate ever set on a home in New York City. But those figures remain to be seen.
