Only a building this tall could have three different names. At a planned 1,550 feet, 217 W. 57th St. will be the second tallest skyscraper in New York City and the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere when it's completed in 2019. The building, which is also officially known as the Central Park Tower, will be a mix of luxury residential condos and commercial space. Extell Development Co. plans to begin selling the condo units later this year, according to Curbed NY. Unofficially, the building is also referred to as the Nordstrom Tower, since the company's new seven-story flagship store will be housed there. (Credit: New York YIMBY)
