The Nordstrom Tower, being built in on W. 57th Street just outside of Central Park, is going to be the tallest residential building in the word once it is completed.

The Tower will be just one foot shorter than One World Trade, which is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. The first seven floors of the building will be a Nordstrom department store, then the rest will be grandiose apartments that only billionaires will be able to afford.

Many local residents are not happy about the new building coming to the neighborhood though. Locals feel as though the building will take away from all of the other historic buildings that populate the area, as well as cast a large, unwanted shadow on Central Park.
