Containing 88 stories, 215 West 57th Street consists of a tower perched atop a podium housing a Nordstrom Department Store. A hotel and luxury apartments
fill the rest of the building. A large cantilever extends over an adjacent landmarked
building approximately 300 feet above the street. Plans for the tower were presented to Community Board 5 in early October but must gain several approvals before moving forward.
