Apple continues to expand its real estate tentacles, and this time the new target is the city of New York.
O New York Post informed that the company is in advanced negotiations to be the new tenant of a building that is being built in Hudson Yards, with about 18.2 thousand square meters on the corner of 11th Avenue with the West 34th Street. If everything is confirmed, Apple would join other tenants such as Point72 Asset Management, the private equity Silver Lake and several law firms.
In the newspaper article, they also cite the possibility of Apple opening a store somewhere in the Hudson Yards complex. However, as the 9to5Mac, the company already has two stores very close by (Apple West 14th Street, which is less than 2.5 km away; and Apple Fifth Avenue, which is less than 4 km away).
Hudson Yards is a real estate complex that has been under construction since 2012, encompassing the expansion of railroad lines and the construction of skyscrapers in a commercial and residential center. The estimated cost of the $ 15 billion construction project has already been described as the largest civil construction project in the history of the United States.
