The tallest residential building on eath might be coming to Manhattan. Leaked plans from the New York development blog YIMBY suggest this.
The Nordstrom Tower will be 1775 feet tall and is slightly taller than the One World Trade Center which be 1479 feet tall.
Current Tallest Residential Building:
There are quite a lot of residential buildings taller than 1000 ft. Dubai is the home to 7 of the tallest residential blocks in the world.
The current tallest block in the world is Princess Tower in Dubai at an height of 1358 feet.
The Nordstrom Tower plans could change, currently the tower is set to house a department store in the first seven floors, that is one massive store. A hotel and ultra-expensive residential condominiums will fill the rest of the building.
It’s worth noting that the updated plans for Nordstrom Tower aren’t official yet, and plans can change at any time before construction is completed. It’s currently expected to be finished in 2018. Nevertheless, there’s no question that the landscape of midtown is about to significantly change — no matter what comes of Nordstrom Tower. In addition to nearby 432 Park Ave, other 1,000-foot-plus towers such as One57, 111 W. 57th Street, and Tower Verre are all set to mark the skyline in the coming years.
