An Apple store at New York’s Grand Central Terminal is back on.

Apple was rumored to be building a giant store in the historic terminal but then the deal seemed to have fallen through.

Whatever happened, it now looks like it is back on, according to the Wall Street Journal:

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is looking for new tenants for a marquee space in Grand Central Terminal, and computer giant Apple Inc. has expressed interest in putting a store there.

The agency is looking for a single renter for two adjacent balconies on the north and east sides of the terminal. It will issue a request for proposals Monday.

The space is about 15,000 square feet — making the store Apple’s smallest in Manhattan (there’s currently four) but potentially the highest trafficked. The WSJ reckons it could be even more popular than the 5th Avenue store, which is one of New York’s most photographed landmarks.

    Not that this isn’t a cool idea, but this store wouldn’t be all that far from the one on 5th ave

    There’s so many people in the city I don’t think it would be a problem to have another one, I’m sure it would keep itself in the black easily, since Apple makes a huge profit margin on at least a few of their most popular products.

    So what? The respective “publics” for each store would seem not to overlap much or at all. A store in Grand Central could be accessed far more easily by millions of train commuters than could the Fifth Avenue store, and vice versa. Looking at Google Earth, it’s about a fifteen block walk or cab ride between the two. I don’t think I’d want to walk that on a cold winter’s day or a hot summer day. And I don’t think I’d pay for a taxi or even a bus if I didn’t have to.
