According to Spanish Newspaper El Pais, Apple will occupy the entirety of the landmark building in the centre of Madrid with it serving as a hub for the company’s operation in the area. The historic building which is currently being restored and renovated will operate as both a retail store and in an administrative capacity as offices. Madrid mayor Ruiz-Gallardon said in a statement that the store, which he believed would be larger than the Apple flagship store on New York’s Fifth Avenue, was a major boom for Madrid.
