Long-time rumors of an upper West Side New York City store seem to be confirmed by the New York Post, which says Apple will take over the existing Victoria’s Secret store at 1981 Broadway at 67th Street in that city. According to the newspaper, Apple plans to demolish the existing two-story building and create its own space. However, city records indicate that no permits have yet been issued for any construction. Victoria’s Secret moved into the building in 2001, one of several it has in Manhattan. If true, it would be the fourth store in Manhattan.
The current building occupies the northwest corner of the intersection in the Lincoln Square District, and is just a block from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The store has over 15,000 square-feet of retail space on two levels, and another 8,400 square-feet in a basement. The first and second levels have 16-foot ceilings, according to lease documents, while the basement has a 12-foot ceiling. Download (pdf) the leasing brochure from the Madison Retail Group Web site.
