Central Park Tower (also known as the Nordstrom Tower and 225 West 57th Street, its address) is a supertall mixed-use commercial/residential project being developed by the Extell Development Company in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. The building will rise 1,550 ft (472 m) to the roof. Upon completion, Central Park Tower will become the tallest building in the city, and in the United States. The building will also be the tallest by roof height in the United States, surpassing the Willis Tower. The building is also notable for its former proposed architectural height of 1,775 feet (541.0 m), one foot shorter than the symbolic 1,776-foot (541.3 m) height of One World Trade Center, as well as proposed at 1,795 ft (547 m).
The first seven floors of the tower will be anchored by New York City's first Nordstrom department store. Floors eight to twelve will house amenity spaces for residents. Due to another residential project, 220 Central Park South, under construction directly across the street from 225 West 57th Street, Extell purchased air-rights to build a cantilever over the Art Students League of New York's building, to which the League's members voted in favor. Official renderings were revealed on New York YIMBY on April 20, 2015. According to an announcement on June 25, 2015, the ornamental spire was officially removed from the design. For marketing purposes, the building will have a floor-count of 131 floors., with 99 actual above-ground floors.
