Grand Central Apple Store design looks beautiful, it could even be open for the holidays

The Wall Street Journal has posted renderings of the proposed Apple Store for Grand Central Station. The pictures certainly appear to do this beautiful building justice and compliment its style and iconic image.

The MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) released some information on the proposed Apple Store which could open near the terminal's east staircase, if approval is granted at tomorrow's meeting. Apple will start building works immediately, with a four month program of works; making an opening time of around late November or early December.

Apple is said to have paid Charlie Palmer's Metrazur restaurant a sum of around $5 million to vacate its space eight years before the lease expires. The MTA will also get a much higher rental figure from Apple; thought to be as high as $1.1 million a year.

I can remember years ago, Standing in that very building, watching the launch of PocketPC. Microsoft was going to rule the PDA world - And did, for a brief time. My, things have changed!!!

I sure will visit this store when its open, I just have to remember to actually catch my train back home.

The task of the people still continues to be the spark that moves mankind ahead more than teamwork.
One of many true tests of leadership could be the ability to recognize an issue before now you have an emergency.
Disneyland is really a work of love. We didn't enter Disneyland simply with the idea of making money.
