Apple is in the process of leasing a 40,000-square-foot office space in the Kaufman building in New York City, located at 100-104 Fifth Avenue, reports New York Post. It will be the company’s first-ever executive office in the city, another indication of Apple’s growing influence in the world and booming business. Business Insider notes that the gadget king already leased a 10,000 square-foot space of the Kaufman building in January of 2011 for its ailingmobile advertising group. The place will be pure Apple, the publication explains:
Apple will use the space to launch new business projects. The office will look and feel like the retail stores with an all-white lobby, sleek elevators and LED lights. The terms of the lease are undisclosed, but the asking price was $55 per square foot.
