The upscale department store Nordstrom, which is known to have been shopping around Midtown for a New York City flagship location, is close to reaching a deal at West 57th Street and Broadway, the New York Post reported. Rumors had originally suggested that the retailer was considering anchoring developer Gary Barnett’s One57 building, just one block east of its future site. While the venue has changed the landlord has not. The site, adjacent to the landmarked B.F. Goodrich Building, was demolished by Extell Development to give way to a gleaming new tower.

“This is going to make the West Side a true shopping mecca that’s competitive with the East Side,” Faith Hope Consolo, Prudential Douglas Elliman’s chairman of retail leasing, said.

Nordstom will occupy several floors of Barnett’s new West Side building. The tentative entrance is planned to sit at 1780 Broadway and the side that faces West 58th Street will function as a loading dock, with the main storefront stretching along the north side of West 57th. [Post]
