J.T. Magen builds the award-winning Nordstrom NYC Flagship

The 320K sf space is the brand’s first New York City flagship location.

The role of the store is changing, but stores matter a lot. They're a place to discover, to become inspired by fashion or new brands. They're also a place to access great help through fit or styling expertise. They're a place to see, touch, feel, and try on the product.

— Shea Jensen, Senior Vice President of Service & Experience, Nordstrom
