Along with inquiries into space in Fort Greene, Apple is looking into space at 247 Bedford Avenue for a new retail store. The space is currently occupied by The Bagel Store. From The Real Deal:
Meanwhile, two additional sources disputed that information, and said in fact the firm was looking closely at 247 Bedford Avenue, in Williamsburg. RedSky Capital and Joel Schreiber’s Waterbridge Capital purchased the building in 2012 for $66 million. It is across the street from a future Whole Foods location.
What do you think? Would you be happy to have a genius bar in the neighborhood, or is this just adding to the retail madness?
