Design revisions to Extell Development’s planned supertall residential tower at 217 West 57th Street will make the structure the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at 1,795 feet — eclipsing 1 World Trade Center by 19 feet.

The building, also known as the Nordstrom Tower, received a height boost between April and June of last year to push its pinnacle up 20 feet from a previously planned height of 1,775 feet. Renderings for the project were released last month.

The Midtown tower’s parapet will now rise 1,530 feet above the ground, from 1,479 feet previously, according to New York YIMBY.

The 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development will house a 200,000-square-foot Nordstrom department store as well as offices, a hotel and condominiums.

Architectural firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill designed the project, with Smith previously serving as chief architect of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai – the tallest building in the world. [NY YIMBY] — Rey Mashayekhi
