Mr. Grossman’s Wall Street Journal blog entry about Apple’s new Grand Central Terminal store provides great visuals for the new space.  Their proposal began as a response to the MTA’s May 23, 2011 Grand Central Terminal Request for Proposal and that RFP contains quite detailed floor plans, elevations, sign locations and mechanicals for the areas that Apple has proposed to occupy (see pg 32 of 61 for instance).

In RFP Addendum 2, Apple’s questions provide even more suggestions about their proposed modifications.  Enjoy!

The new Apple Store turned out just like the renderings!

Update 2: Apple’s store in Grand Central Terminal opened to the public on December 9, 2011 just in time for the holiday shopping season and it looks just like the renderings.  Happy Holidays!

Update:  Appendix 4 of the RFP links to an entire folder full of architectural, electrical  and construction plans.
