The New York post is reporting that Apple is looking to expand its iconic Fifth Avenue Plaza Tower, to possibly take over all 61,000 square-feet.
The problem is that they don't want to pay the asking price; which I'm sure is astronautical. However, Apple has helped put that particular corner on the map, and you couldn't want a better tenant.
Boston Properties, the owners of the building, reached an agreement with FAO Schwarz - to vacate before its lease expired in 2017. They are currently also in negotiations with Nike for that space.
The going rate for that area is between $2,700 to $4,500 and up.
