Which Store Should Take The Chelsea Barnes & Noble Space?

Bets are on as to which major retailer will snap up 675 Sixth Avenue in Chelsea. The 41,700-square-foot storefront, located in a beautiful pre-war building, is currently home to Barnes & Noble. Though the book store isn't slated to shutter till next spring, the space is already being advertised for rent. But who will bite? The Shophound would love to see a Nordstrom move in, while a Racked reader wrote that the location would "make a perfect Tar-zhay store." Target in Chelsea? Well, many of the other retailers in the area are discount, so it would seem to make sense, but we're with The Shophound on this one. Any other guesses/predictions as to who it will be? Feel free to mail 'em in, or leave them in the comments.
