NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The iconic glass cube, a beacon for Apple’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue, will be coming down.

The city has issued a permit allowing the full removal of the glass structure.

It’s believed to be part of a major renovation and expansion of Apple’s underground store.

The project requires a site safety manager to remove the delicate glass and is expected to cost $2 million.

No requests have been filed yet to rebuild the cubicle.
