Apple’s future presence on New York City’s Upper East Side has been confirmed by city building permits issued last week that list the names of Apple’s usual architect and structural engineer. The permits are dated May 15th and cover soil testing underneath the structure at 940 Madison Avenue, and demolition of the building’s interior, costing $20,000 and $60,000 respectively. The future Upper East Side store was first confirmed by IFO on May 6th. The initial permits were granted in the name of Apple’s long-time architectural firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, and engineering firm Eckersley O’Callaghan, which specializes in glass structures. Both firms have been responsible for some of the industry’s most high-profile retail spaces around the world, including Apple’s Fifth Avenue (NYC) location. Permits for the future store’s major construction, heating/air conditioning, and signage have not yet been issued. Download (pdf) the permit documents.
