Foot Locker has leased 36,000 square feet for a new mega store in Times Square.

The purveyor of athletic footwear will open up shop at Himmel + Meringoff and The Swig Company’s 1460 Broadway near West 41st Street, also known as 8 Times Square, according to the New York Post. Foot Locker will take up three floors.

Starbucks, salad chain Chop’t and Godiva Chocolate are currently located at the building. Their leases, however, are all set to expire on December 31, the newspaper reported.

Asking rent, as well as the 4,500-square-foot LED exterior screen, total $12 million a year. It’s unclear, however, how much Foot Locker will pay, the newspaper reported.
