The Nordstrom family this week is set to christen its newest store—albeit one that was a half-century in the making—at the bottom of a Manhattan skyscraper.

The 320,000-square-foot, seven-story shopping space will be the largest store to open in New York in more than 50 years and represents the family’s biggest bet ever. While Erik Nordstrom, co-president of the Seattle-based retailer, helped guide the store across the finish line, it was his 86-year-old father Bruce’s vision that set it into motion.
