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.
