Apple in New York, Boston
Apple is expected to open a 25,000 square-foot store in New York this spring, which will be housed in the underground retail plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue at the edge of Central Park. The company is also planning to erect a four-story futuristic building across from the Prudential Center within two-years time, according to InformationWeek. Rumors suggest the New York location will be the home of a 32-foot glass cube in front of the facility that will be open 24 hours, and that Apple has been working to release its own brand of mobile phone. The iPod-maker recently announced plans to open a fourth retail store in Colorado, and proceeded to open the thirty-second Apple store in California over the weekend.
