A new Apple Store is headed to the Upper East Side.

The electronics giant will set up shop in a 12,580-square-foot property at 940 Madison Avenue, on the corner of East 74th Street, the New York Daily News reported. The spot will mark the city’s sixth Apple store, and boasts 95 feet of frontage along Madison Avenue and includes the building’s original bank vault.

Apple would not confirm the plans to the Daily News, and real estate executive Khedouri Ezair, who owns the building, declined to comment. But Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the Philadelphia architecture firm behind the Apple store’s Fifth Avenue glass cube, filed plans to demolish a portion of the building’s interior last week. Eckersley O’Callaghan, an engineering firm that has worked with Apple in the past, is also involved in construction, according to permits cited by the Daily News.
