Apple Plans To Tear Down Historic Manhattan Building

After encountering local resistance to renovating the building for a new Apple store, the computer maker is now proposing to tear the building down outright.

"Instead of trying to convince the LPC of the merits of its proposed design, Apple reportedly went back to the drawing board and chalked up a new one. Under the revised design, Apple is looking to demolish the existing building completely and replace it with a two-story retail store with an all-glass facade (rendering below). A large illuminated Apple logo would sit centered on the second story."
