Artist rendering of NYC Grand Central Terminal Apple Store


A few days ago we told you that Apple signed a lease to open a retail store in New York's Grand Central Terminal. A few more details have emerged since then. First up are the renderings by the Wall Street Journal as to what the store will look like inside the iconic station. Not too much of a surprise: wooden tables and shiny Macs. However, the store's wall will be all glass so as to not disrupt the architecture of the station itself.

In addition to the renderings, the WSJ reports that Apple "paid Charlie Palmer's Metrazur restaurant $5 million to vacate its space on the terminal's east balcony more than eight years before its lease expires." That's something the Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials had no problem with as Metrazur's annual rent was $263,997 and Apple's will be $1.1 million.
