“Sources tell us that Apple is seriously negotiating for the entire 12,500-foot building at 23 Wall St.,” Lois Weiss reports for The New York Post.
“Located at the iconic corner of Wall and Broad streets, the small granite building nicknamed “The Corner” was developed by the financier J.P. Morgan and, after its completion in 1914, served as J.P Morgan and Co.’s headquarters,” Weiss reports.
“It’s now an empty building connected to its tall residential and luxury condominium neighbor at 15 Broad St., which has an Hermes shop on the Broad Street side, facing the New York Stock Exchange,” Weiss reports.
“The building still bears some scars from a bomb hidden in a horse drawn carriage – that rocked Wall Street on Sept. 16, 1920,” Weiss reports. “While over $1 billion in gold sat inside the Assay Office across the street, the Morgan property at 23 Wall took the brunt of the noontime blast, which killed 30 people, and wounded hundreds more. Foreign terrorists were suspected, but the exact target was never identified.”
Weiss reports, “It has tremendous windows that we’re sure Apple CEO Steve Jobs will enjoy illuminating with neon Apple logos.”
