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.
