Apple began work for the refurbishment of its iconic shop located on Fifth Avenue at the beginning of this year, but little is known about the plans of the company. New information from Bloomberg, however, offer more details about the reform and Apple plans to grow the settlement “more than twice the original size”.
During the hearing held last Wednesday, the Chairman of Boston Properties, Douglas Linde, explained that Apple is going to double the size of its Fifth Avenue store. Boston Properties is the co-owner of building that General Motors has on Fifth Avenue and which in turn is the Apple Store and its famous Crystal cube. Linde said during his speech that Apple has been the “mysterious tenant on which we have been talking about for more than one year” when we mentioned the issue of occupying the empty retail space that was in the Fifth Avenue building.
The Apple company has not said anything about her plans for reform of the shop located in the Fifth Avenue New Yorker, but authorized the company headed by Tim Cook Yes spokesman told Bloomberg that Apple plans to an “incredible” local “where guests can enjoy new services and experiences in a much larger space that so far”.
Fifth Avenue shopping district has suffered in recent months what tenants are concerned. She is have been reporting a quantity record vacancies due to the increase of income and falls in sales and traffic that exist in the area. Bloomberg attributed part of this to the presence of President Donald Trump in the Trump Tower, which is only two blocks away. This has led to an increase in the police presence in the area, as well as traffic congestion and the limitation of the pedestrian crossing.
The Fifth Avenue of Manhattan, amongst the most expensive shopping districts in the world, has won a record of available commercial space number since retailers were opposed to the expensive rents imposed by the owners. In addition, the presence of the President of Donald Trump in the Trump Tower, at a distance of only two blocks to the South, has been associated with the fall of the transit in the area, causing the police presence be needed to establish barriers and limit the free movement of pedestrians.
Earlier this month, Apple officially moved its Fifth Avenue store after several reports which claimed that the company was planning a reform to its expansion. Last year, Apple renewed its store in Union Square in San Francisco with a new design and “Genius Grove”, and is expected to be the same ideas which will be applied in the reform which will suffer the famous Fifth Avenue store. While duran works on the premises of Apple, the store continues to service customers and visitors in a space that was vacant right next to the Crystal cube, of the FAO Schwarz.
There are eight Apple Stores in Manhattan. The shop logo is located at 767 Fifth Avenue. The Apple Store with the impressive glass entrance is not the largest one, despite being the most famous.
