The store is expected to open in the Fall, the New York Post reported, and will span across the ground, lower and second floors. Asking rent for the ground floor was $250 per square foot, according to the paper.

The company had been eyeing off a space at the ground, first and second floors of SL Green Realty’s 3 Columbus Circle, but in the end decided to use that space for a men’s department. A seven-story flagship Nordstrom store is expected to open at Gary Barnett’s Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street in 2019 (if he can land the necessary financing to build, that is).

Dubbed EOS in honor of a Greek goddess, Durst’s 47-story mixed use tower at 855 Sixth Avenue opened for leasing in June last year. It has 375 rental units, 20 percent of which are affordable.

In 2015, Nike inked an 11-year lease for 147,000 square feet of office space at the building, which spans a total of roughly 570,000 square feet.
