Apple is planning to expand its presence in New York City. According to the New York Post (via AppleInsider), the project includes a dedicated office space of almost 5,600 square meters as well as a new Apple Store in an area known as 55 Hudson Yards, within the island of Manhattan.
More space and another store in West Manhattan
The complex consists of six buildings and houses the largest urban project in the history of the city. Specifically, it consists of the following buildings:
Height in meters
Building 30 Hudson Yards
Building 50 Hudson Yards
Building 35 Hudson Yards
Building 15 Hudson Yards
Building 10 Hudson Yards
Building 55 Hudson Yards
As can be seen and if the deal goes through, Apple would have space in the 55 Hudson Yards building, the second to be built and the least tall. For comparison, the Picasso Tower in Madrid’s financial center is 157 meters high and 46 floors high.
According to this scheme, the new Apple Store would be located in the 10 Hudson Yards building, located at the other end of the complex. The whole project seeks to offer a very well-kept environment and with a modern design that aims to extend the financial center of the city towards the west.
Among the tenants, the fashion firm Tapestry, Boston Consulting Group and Sidewalk Labs (a subsidiary of Alphabet) are expected to occupy office space in one of the buildings.
More plans for Vancouver
Apple may also be planning a new store in Vancouver, Canada. According to a local publication (via 9to5Mac), it is the largest shopping center in the city, known under the name of CF Pacific Centre . It houses more than 100 stores that are located underground in a huge space in the center of the city.

Apple already has a store in the same mall, which is believed to be one of the best performing stores in the world since its opening in 2008 . The idea behind this project is to replace the main entrance to the complex located on the surface, which currently looks like this:
And replace it with this construction:
The plans are not yet confirmed by Apple, but they certainly fit in with the exterior look of some of the latest store renovations made in the world. The one in Chicago is a clear example, also similar to the one in Melbourne.
The company is immersed in a process of renovation of existing stores , oriented towards a new model led by Angela Ahrendts.
