In February we heard early reports that Apple was planning to construct an Apple Store inside Grand Central in the heart of New York City. A month later new reports suggested that the plan was scrapped. According to The Wall Street Journal, however, Apple is interested in two balconies that are located on the north and east sides of Grand Central Terminal â a total of 15,230 square feet. BGR has also independently confirmed that Apple has indeed been scoping out the space during the past few weeks. A restaurant currently occupies one of the areas up for rent, but it’s expected to close its doors on July 1st, which would presumably allow Apple to start construction later this summer. According to some experts speaking to The Wall Street Journal, the store could have the potential to be Apple’s most popular retail location to date. The MTA is expected to issue a request for proposals on Monday.
