Nordstrom Manhattan Flagship Store

Redefining Nordstrom’s presence in New York City, the retailer’s flagship location in Manhattan merges the convenience of modern day shopping with luxury brick-and-mortar retail. Nordstrom occupies seven levels at the base of the Central Park Tower, a 1,550-foot tall chic residential building, and includes seven restaurants throughout the store. Fronted by a unique glass façade, the design of the 320,000 sf tower space reflects the spirit of the city and its people. Coffman provided the structural engineering and consultation for the store development and related tenant improvements on three adjacent historical buildings.

The structural design of this flagship store represents an ongoing 30-plus-year partnership between Coffman and Nordstrom, during which Coffman has completed over 600 projects for the brand. Over the years Coffman has designed Nordstrom locations nationwide, helping to maintain the high-quality stores that Nordstrom shoppers recognize, while simultaneously evolving structures to simplify the user experience.
