Apple to double size of Fifth Avenue flagship


Apple is going really big in Manhattan.

The retailer is expanding its flagship at the General Motors building on Fifth Avenue from its current 32,000-sq.-ft. to over 77,000 sq. ft. The Apple space is renowned for the glass cube located on the street level.

While the store is undergoing the expansion, Apple has temporarily moved into a space in the building that was formerly occupied by FAO Schwarz.

Apple spokesman Nick Leahy told the company anticipates an “incredible” new Fifth Avenue store, “where our customers will enjoy new services and experiences in a much larger space.”

Once the expansion is over and Apple moves back into its expanded space, the former FAO Schwarz store is due to be transformed into an Under Armour flagship.
