After months of filling its prime Bryant Park retail space with pop-up shops, Blackstone Group is finally on the verge of landing a long-term tenant for 1095 Sixth Avenue. According to the New York Post, Nordstrom Rack, the off-price division of luxury department store Nordstrom, is closing in on the 32,000 square feet at the base of the redesigned glass tower.

While there is still at least one more retail in the running for the space, architects are already drawing up plans for the store, which would be a similar size to the Nordstrom Rack in Union Square. The space is currently occupied by a National Football League store.

The Post said there’s also a chance Nordstrom eschews the aforementioned traditional retail space for a larger, 50,000-square-foot block being built in the tower’s concourse that would have a separate, mid-block entrance. [Post, 1st item]
