Apple has confirmed its plans to open an Apple Store in the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. CNET reports Jason Barlia, market director for Apple’s New York stores confirmed the plans at the opening of Apple’s first Brooklyn location
The new store will sit beneath the “Oculus,” which is a domed structure located a block away from the main part of the World Trade Center. The new location will increase Apple’s presence in the downtown Manhattan area, which is experiencing a renaissance of sorts, due to the investments in the World Trade Center Tower and the surrounding financial district.
A World Trade Center Apple Store has long been rumored, but this marks the first official confirmation of the Cupertino firm’s plans for the area. Apple already has a number of locations in the area, with six stores on the island of Manhattan alone, with even more locations in the other boroughs and surrounding areas.
