Brooklyn's Rumored First Apple Store May Be Nearing Completion

New, 1 comment

It's long been rumored to have leased a spot in Williamsburg

What could be Brooklyn's first Apple store, rumored to open along Williamsburg's Bedford Avenue, may be opening soon, Brownstoner reports, based on several new job postings that have gone up on the company's website.

Construction on the store, located at 247 Bedford Avenue, got underway sometime last year, and work has progressed steadily ever since. The exterior of the building looks mostly complete, but scaffolding is still up and has been for quite some time now, according to Brownstoner.

That being said, Apple hasn't yet confirmed that it's moving into the building; a New York Post story from December 2014 said the tech giant had signed a lease for a 20,000-square-foot space. But the building's owners, RedSky Capital and Waterbridge Capital, who purchased the site for $66 million in 2012, have refused to confirm or deny the rumors so far. (Curbed reached out to Apple for confirmation, and will update as soon as we hear back.)

Apple store or no, the retail scene in Williamsburg is rapidly expanding—and getting ever more chain-ified—with a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Equinox, and Citibank all set to open in the near future.
