Iconic Glass Cube Reinstallation at 5th Avenue Apple Store

Renovation efforts have commenced at the iconic Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York City, where construction to replace the glass structure has started.

The project involves the replacement of the glass and enhancements to the plaza surrounding the building, with costs estimated at $6 million.

This figure is close to the original $7 million spent on its initial construction in 2005.

Construction barriers and scaffolding are now visible around the famous glass cube, with completion expected by November’s end.
