When completed, Manhattan's newest residential tower will hold a world record for tallest residential building. 225 West 57th Street will rise to 1,479 feet above street level (its spire reaching to 1,775 feet), beating Chicago's 1,451-foot Willis Tower. The bottom seven floors will be a massive Nordstrom department store, the city's first.
